Paper Abstract

Industrial automation, robotics and automatic inspections include the processing of image sequences. The data rate can be very high in dynamic image systems and often real-time processing requires the use of special hardware. As an example for a typical image processing problem the following paper presents a visual motion detection systems which allows non- tactile registration of process parameters in a continuous rolling process. During an image sequence analysis the motion and the dimension of hot tubes will be measured on-line by a real-time image processing system. The motion is detected and measured by observing the translation of specific templates on the surface within a sequence of grey-scale images. This motion is analyzed by using a correlation procedure. The introduction of a state space model for the process parameters which includes a-priori knowledge and dynamic knowledge of the rolling process allows a compact motion description.
