3D profile measurement of an object is studied experimentally by using a standard fringe projection technique consisting of a CCD camera and a digital projector. The height profile of the object is calculated through the phase change distribution of the projected fringes with two dimensional fringe pattern by introducing the carrier frequencies in two spatial directions, x and y. The phase distribution is extracted from the optical fringe pattern by using S-transform gradient and S-transform phase methods. Experimental result for the Fourier transform profilometry algorithm is compared with the results of the S-transform analysis.
