Paper Abstract

Very often in industry and medical applications we meet tasks, where small microscopic structures have to be inspected. The task is not just related to visualization it is also necessary to inspect and measure features of an imaged object in an automated image processing based system. One newly developed handmicroscope, called MESOP, is presented that allows for a high quality optical inspection of workpieces and objects. Due to the concrete realization with a laptop based image processing and computing environment the handmicroscope can be applied in a mobile manner. It is positioned in front of the object. The optical head, supplied with telecentric optics and a small camera, captures the image, transfers it into the PCMCIA-based frame grabber. There the images are stored and further processed due to the necessity of the operator.
