Basic Machine Vision Techniques
The purpose of this chapter is to outline some of the basic techniques used in the development of industrial machine vision systems. These are discussed in sufficient detail to understand the key ideas outlined elsewhere in this book. For a more detailed explanation of image processing and image analysis techniques, the reader should refer to the general reference material in Appendix C. In the following discussion we shall frequently indicate the equivalent Prolog+ operators for the vision techniques described. (A more detailed discussion of Prolog+ operators can be found in Chapter 3 and Appendix E.) Prolog+ commands appear in square brackets. In certain cases, sequences of Prolog+ commands are needed to perform an operation and these are similarly listed.
