Computer vision systems are employed to determine the major and minor lengths of deformed elliptic grids while determining a sheet metal's workability. The existing method identifies the ellipse using the least squares analysis. It suffers two drawbacks: assumptions in direct conflict with the observed real-world processes and an undesirable property of orientation dependence. For the remedy, this paper presents a new method that, in addition to achieving the desired property of orientation invariance, discards assumptions that conflict with real-world processes. The proposed method is implemented and tested using simulated and real-world data. Results are reported and compared with those obtained by the existing method.
