Paper Abstract

There will never be complete agreement on what constitutes the best user interface for machine vision systems. Tastes differ, after all. Furthermore, what is best will certainly depend on the application, the type of user fa- which it is intended, and the degree of training of the user. In spite of this, certain general principles can be enunciated. Without pretending to offer the “right” or “best” answers, this paper will attempt to apply these principles to user interfaces for
    algorithm development systems and
    systems intended for automated visual inspection in factories.

Various existing and proposed user interfaces are considered. The present “programming bottleneck” in the use of real time image processing hardware will be examined in detail.
