Marc Rioux is a Senior Research Officer of the Institute for Information Technology at the National Research Council of Canada. His present interests are in the development of three-dimensional sensing for machine vision and optical dimensional inspection. He received his bachelor's degree in engineering physics in 1971 and a master's degree in physics in 1976, both from Laval University. He worked five years on TEA-CO2 laser development and applications and two years in infrared holography and joined the National Research Council in 1978 to work on optical sensor research. Most of the research activities since 1981 are related to 3D digitizing for applications in machine vision, dimensional inspection and visual communication.
