Paper Abstract

Industry has traditionally relied upon point sensors such as thermocouples and pressure gauges to control its operations, but as manufacturing processes become increasingly complex, additional types of information are required. For example, typical process measurement needs now include contamination detection, particulate size and shape, concentration/density profile (in pipes and tanks), and thermal profile. In many cases, imaging systems are the only sensors that can provide the required information.
