Paper Abstract

The demand on higher quality of products together with recent progress in texture recognition have made it possible to consider old processes in a new way. It has been common that the human operators have used visual appearance to control e.g. mixing, floating, or cooking processes. Now a methodology based on time series of textured images is reported and demonstrated. The methodology is aimed to help the human operators either to monitor or to control the processes. The main idea is that a sequence of images is taken. Each image in a sequence is interpreted and characterized as a texture image. The textured image is transformed. It is also possible that suitable features are extracted from the transformed texture image. The transformed images or the features are used together with the corresponding values from preceding and succeeding images to characterize the process. Some results are reported here. The key points how to apply the methodology are also discussed.
