Paper Abstract

Following many years of development, interactive vision systems have become an effective tool for problem analysis and algorithm selection for industrial inspection, process monitoring and machine / robot control. Until recently such systems were inevitably based upon a stand-alone computer. However, more recent work has highlighted the need for a system that can be operated via the Internet. Such a system, called CIP, has been developed by the authors and was reported in a recent paper at this conference. This article describes enhancements of that system, including: the ability to write scripts, extensions to the user interface and command repertoire, as well as the ability to control the program remotely. Very recently, an interface to a shareware version of Prolog, written in Java, was completed and provides the ability to write intelligent programs for analysing visual scenes. CIP forms an integral part of a larger suite of programs that is being developed by the authors and their colleagues, for the remote acquisition and processing of images from a factory production environment. The latter is described in an accompanying article in this conference.
