Paper Abstract

This work discusses the automated application of the micro-bolometric and the photonic cooled infrared arrays, in the context of the automotive assembly operations. Such usages comprise: static thermographic applications as in evaluating the protective coating coverage over steel-fuel tanks. Furthermore, this discussion includes a variety of processing algorithms dedicated for handling the acquired infrared sequences or scans; addressing challenges in emissivity variations, sensor saturation, and surrounding contribution, while introducing possible solution schemes. The physics and detection methodology are presented through modeling and simulation work.
