    Ing. Bart Ribbens (born 1984, Ekeren, Belgium) graduated in 2006 at the Artesis University College Antwerp in the department of Industrial sciences, Electromechanics. In 2007 he started his research in the field of robotics and vision technology to clean artworks using a pulsed laser. The main goal of the project was to develop software to plan the robot paths based on 3D clouds from laser scans. In 2008 he started his PhD research in association with the Vrije Universiteit Brussel and the University of Antwerp in the field of optical measurement techniques for mechanical and biomechanical applications. In the first part of this research some optical techniques were developed for crack shape measurements of airplane parts. Afterwards he started working on an accurate fringe projection profilometer and in the meantime he discovered the need for user-friendly simulation software which he developed during the last year.
