Abstract
This paper presents the new developments on a
stereo vision based cloud base height measurement
instrument. The principle of operation will be presented, as
well as a description of the current prototype that has been
developed. The major improvement presented in this paper
consists on the automation of the calibration procedure that
compensates for the cameras inherent misalignments.
Measurement results are compared with measurements from
other instruments.
