Paper Abstract

A machine vision system was developed by BIRL to provide verification and identification of tire treads on the fabrication line. This paper discusses technical aspects of this successful application, from the original design to the final implementation. Specific emphases are given to the hardware and software implementation of the image acquisition and processing of the system. Aspects regarding the imaging of highly absorptive material (black rubber) and rapidly moving target are also discussed. Problems encountered during the development and integration of the system are described, and solutions are presented.
