Abstract
In this paper, a mobile probe for eddy current testing
using inductive sensors and two optical computer mice for
position determination is presented. It is a first step in
developing an autonomous system that is able to detect flaws in
the metallic structure of an aircraft. We present the system
implemented and show results of its use to detect a rectangular
flaw in a flat aluminum plate.
