Paper Abstract

Vision systems for color measurement should be designed with the basic principles of colorimetry in mind. A lack of understanding that a vision based color measurement system could fall if it ignores the basic principles of colorimetry is the main reason for some earlier color vision system failures. The purpose of this paper is to clarify how the color measurement principles have to be applied to vision systems and how the electro-optical design features of colorimeters have to be modified in order to implement them for vision systems. Despite their considerable advantages color vision systems are not capable of solving all color and appearance problems. Not understanding the limitations of this new technology is another reason for the slow progress of color vision systems. Sometimes color vision systems have been used for solving problems which, for a variety of reasons cannot be successfully resolved with them. A critical overview of the major areas of applications for color vision systems will be presented.
