Paper Abstract

The most interesting sensor-systems that can be used advantageously in flexible production, not only for quality control purposes, are image processing systems. The use of one or more electro-optical sensors, e.g. matrix or linear CCD-arrays, laser scanners etc., combined with an image processing unit and a host computer leads to sophisticated system configurations. Yet a clear understanding of these configurations, both in software- and hardware-level, is necessary to make these systems flexible and intelligent as needed. As a consequence new hardware and software concepts are required that could be integrated into image processing units for industrial applications. A time sequential, dynamically configurable image processing system is a good approximation with adapted software tools - and here especially the powerful BILDLIB of IPA - to meet industrial needs.
