Paper Abstract

This paper describes a vision system designed for automatic inspection of galvanized metallic strips in real-time. First, we present the image acquisition system whose two main components are a linear camera and a specific lighting device. In the second part, an original procedure is proposed in order to segment the line images at the line image acquisition rate. It consists in a fast adaptive thresholding scheme which determines global thresholds for each line image. In order to achieve an exhaustive control of the whole production, these tasks are run in real-time on a specific hardware architecture. The prototype described in the last section of this paper has been integrated on a production line to evaluate its efficacy.
