Paper Abstract

The European Community has, since 1984, funded ESPRIT--the European Strategic Program for Research and Development in Information Technology. Amongst the many projects supported are a number relating to the development of machine vision for applications in manufacturing industry. Other vision related projects address applications outside the strict field of manufacturing, whilst yet others impinge upon vision but are not limited to it. This paper identifies these industrial-vision-relevant projects, completed and current, within the ESPRIT program, and indicates their current status and summarizes reported results in the public domain, but in no way sets out to report in depth on any project. The motivation for the preparation of this paper has been the author's involvement as a review for one such project, MOVE, (Microprocessor Open Vision Environment) which by its nature necessarily interacts with a number of the others. This paper is written for a mainly North American audience and is intended to give a very brief introduction to the ESPRIT program for those not familiar with it; it should not be seen as an authoritative statement of how ESPRIT is administered.
