Abstract : The patent application relates to an image interpenetration system for super-imposing video images of a plurality of objects on a single display and for generating numerical data on the relative positions of these objects. The objects or models thereof are mounted on remote-controlled, six degree of freedom positioners. A video camera transmits a video picture of each object to a display unit where the video images are mixed. Movement of the model positioners results in the desired depth of image interpenetration. A computer monitors the location of the models on the positioners and generates software which can be used by the system or other machines to perform work on an object.
