2.3 - Ultrafast Surface Inspection System Based on Image Processing with Cellular Neural Networks (CNN)

A. Blug, V. Jetter, P. Strohm & H. Höfler
An important issue in quality assurance is the inspection of rapidly moving surfaces for small defects such as scratches, dents, grooves, or chatter marks. This paper describes an image processing system based on a novel camera technique - the so called Cellular Neural Networks (CNN) - for an industrial application which was not feasible for conventional machine vision systems so far. The application is a test site for a 100% surface control in the production...
