Paper Abstract

Modern industries around the world are daily facing problems associated with increasing their speed of production of piece parts and intermediates while maintaining quality and cost goals. Rugged, high speed sensors are readily available for sensing physical quantities such as temperature, pressure, alignment and the like. Less traditional parameters such as color, taste and texture have been left to off-line, human inspection. In the case of color, this has usually been a result of the speed, cost, operator complexity and fragility of existing equipment. This paper will attempt to review some current color sensing technologies and present some results obtained with a dispersive, high-speed Color Signature Sensor currently being developed at Honeywell's Sensors and Signal Processing Laboratory.
