The paper presents design details and applications of the recently developed 3‐D laser radar from Z+F. It presents models which have been constructed using the data from “inspection of tunnel tubes”, modelling of a “car body welding cell” and a “car body gripper” in the automotive industry as...
A system that began with DNA tagging of oil cargoes has expanded to provide tracers for such diverse commodities as grain, silk, antiques, diamonds, high value documents and packaging. It has been used for a great variety of purposes. One is the covert tracing of marked commodities that have...
Provides details of a variety of industrial inspection systems that received funding from the European Union's HPCN-TTN (High Performance Computing Network-Technology Transfer Nodes) programme. Describes the inspection systems and the commercial benefits that were obtained.
Describes a machine vision system which can be used for the detection of defects in glass ribbon and plastic sheets. Uses a system of multiple line scan CCD cameras and scanned LED light sources to detect and measure defects both along and across the web.
The paper presents a new approach to texture analysis. The need for a more formal definition of the term surface texture is first identified, and an appropriate texture taxonomy proposed. A method of analysis is described, synthesising innovative elements of machine vision and computer graphics...
The areal (surface area density of bits) storage density of magnetic hard disks is continually increasing, with typical available commercial storage densities being around 10Gbits/in 2 . It is predicted that densities in excess of 40Gbits/in 2 will be possible before the year 2003. A number of...
This paper describes a state-of-the-art, commercially available optical correlator that has been used to perform industrial applications. The optical correlator can be used in many different applications including quality control, defect detection, target tracking and pattern recognition. The...
Concrete decay has become a major ongoing problem for the developed world, affecting all manner of structures. The purpose of the reported research is thus to advance the prospects for the realisation of high capacity, robotic repair systems through sensor technology. Here, the particular target...
In this work an original humidity sensor is described. It is based on the study of Seebeck voltage evolution during the water evaporation of a micro‐module Peltier (MMP). The measurement principle is to detect (after cooling) the small temperature decrease created when total water evaporation...
