This paper presents a novel, non-intrusive, non-contact object boundary mapping sensor using a Digital Micromirror Device (DMD) and real-time pixel processing. The presented sensor is ideal for use in environments where brightly illuminated or radiating objects are in a hazardous environment such as in environments with radiation, heat, cold, harmful machine parts, etc. Experimental results demonstrate the boundary mapping sensor for a rectangular target and a multi-square target illuminated by visible wavelengths.
