Paper Abstract

A real-time vision system for TV screen quality inspection is introduced. The whole system consists of eight cameras and one processor per camera. It acquires and processes 112 images in 6 seconds. The defects to be inspected can be grouped into four main categories (bubble, line-out, line reduction and landing) although there exists a large variability among each particular type of defect. The complexity of the whole inspection process has been reduced by dividing images into smaller ones and grouping the defects into frequency and intensity relevant ones. Tools such as mathematical morphology, Fourier transform, profile analysis and classification have been used. The performance of the system has been successfully proved against human operators in normal production conditions.
