Automated Inspection in FMS to Reduce the Inspection Time during Process

Surendrakumar S. Nagpure


Humans are able to find such defects with prior knowledge. Human judgment is prejudiced by outlook and earlier knowledge. Though, it is boring, painstaking, expensive and innately untrustworthy due to its subjective nature. Hence, traditional visual quality inspection performed by human inspectors has the possibility to be replaced by computer vision systems. The higher demands for consistency, objectivity and effectiveness have required the introduction of precise automated inspection systems. These systems employ image processing techniques and can quantitatively characterize complex sizes, shapes, and the color and textural properties of products.
