Paper Abstract

In earlier articles, the value of interactive image processing for research in visual inspection has been discussed. At UWIST a laboratory incorporating a variety of lighting devices, optical equipment, cameras and a powerful image processor (Autoview, British Robotic Systems Ltd.) has been established. The present paper develops this theme further and discusses some recent research results on the inspection of a variety of industrial artefacts. It also describes the use of interactive image analysis to develop prototype robot vision systems. A robot (Placemate, Pendar Robotics Ltd.) has recently been interfaced to Autoview and this combination will be used in the future for studies in such tasks as automated assembly and palletising. The paper concludes with a reminder that good engineering is an essential part of our subject.
