Computer Vision in Industry

  • Lothar Rossol
Part of the International Trends in Manufacturing Technology book series (MANUTECH)


Computer vision will revolutionise manufacturing in two important areas: inspection and adaptive control of robots. Already both these uses of computer vision are beginning to change manufacturing, with many systems now in production. The two specific industrial vision systems to be described in this paper, KEYSIGHT and CONSIGHT, will give a general indication of the state of the technology.
