In this paper, an online measurement and error compensation system for curve grinding based on pattern recognition was presented and verified by experiments. The measurement system organization and its principle of operation were introduced in detail. The work piece and grinding wheel image were sampled at certain positions to avoid spark influence. In order to increase system resolution, images were sampled only at local areas of the work piece and grinding wheel. A discrimination technology based on a circular tolerance zone was proposed which can solve the problem of local image edge comparison. For image de-noising, a local threshold algorithm was applied to determine new wavelet coefficients. Furthermore, a two-step edge detection method was used to realize sub-pixel precision. Finally, a series of experiments were carried out to examine the detection precision of the image measurement system and its influencing factors. From experiments, it can be said that the proposed method in this paper is effective, and its detection precision is much better than traditional methods.
