Integrated Imaging and Vision Techniques for Industrial Inspection: Advances and Applications

Series: Advances in Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition



Integrated imaging- and vision-based techniques are of paramount importance for automated visual inspection in

modern manufacturing and engineering. The sophistication of the techniques assures high-quality performance of the manufacturing process through precise positioning, online monitoring, and real-time classification. Advanced systems incorporating multiple imaging and/or vision modalities provide robust solutions to complex situations and problems in industrial applications. A diverse range of production/manufacturing industries, including aerospace, automotive, electronics, pharmaceutical, biomedical, semiconductor, steel production, and food/beverage, etc., have benefited from recent advances in technologies. This book is to highlight such advances and demonstrate the successful applications of integrated imaging and vision technologies in varied industrial inspection tasks.


The book consists of two parts: advances and applications. The advances provide an insight into recent progress, developments, and future trends of imaging and vision techniques for varied industrial inspection tasks, while the applications present the state-of-the-art of imaging and vision system integration, implementation, and optimization.
