Paper Abstract

Visual inspection of surfaces is a complex sensory process that depends on several factors related to the observer [1]–[3] (his knowledge, experience, tiredness or the purpose of observation), the object observed and the light environment. In order to reduce the subjectivity and to improve the robustness of the analysis of the appearance quality of the inspected surfaces, multi-lighting imaging techniques like RTI (Reflectance Transformation Imaging) are being used more and more. However, and to make the most of this technique, it is necessary to control the acquisition and processing, especially for highly reflective surfaces and / or having particular surface topographies. Thus, we propose an innovative implementation based on the RTI technique by increasing it with an acquisition and a processing in high dynamic range (HDR), adapted and adaptive. This coupling makes it possible to avoid the low dynamic range (LDR) of the cameras and therefore ensures a faithful estimate, for each pixel, of the angular component of the reflectance of the surface inspected, in particular in the case of non-Lambertian surfaces, and heterogeneous surfaces in terms of material and / or geometric texturing. Beyond appearance reconstruction, maps associated with geometric and statistical indicator maps (local slope/kurtosis/skewness/entropy) are used to show the relevance and performance of the proposed HDR-RTI methodology.
