The authors detail the procedures used in the development of an active stereo probe (ASP) precision stereo vision system that combines animate oculomotor reflexes with a novel active illumination source. They describe how a mathematical model of the ASP imaging geometry and kinematics was utilized at all stages of the development process to ensure that the final system complied with the required performance criteria. The results of a series of simulation analysis experiments are presented together with their implications for the design and fabrication of the final system. Some initial results on surface reconstruction from stereograms captured by the completed head are presented.
