Paper Abstract

Many automated quality inspection systems make use of brightness and contrast features of the objects being inspected. This reduces the complexity of the problem solving methods, as well as the demand for computational capacity. Nevertheless a lot of significant information is located in color features of the objects. This paper describes a method, that allows the evaluation of color information in a very compact and efficient way. The described method uses a combination of multi-valued logic and a special color model. We use fuzzy logic as multi-valued logic, and the HSI color model, but any multi-valued logic, that allows rule-based reasoning can be used. The HSI color model can also be exchanged with other color models, if special demands require this.
