CALL FOR PAPERS
JOURNAL OF REAL TIME IMAGING
Special Issue on REAL-TIME DETECTION OF DEFECTS
Quality control is a crucial issue for any production process, and many of
the traditional methods for defect detection in manufacturing are rapidly
changing. Real-time defect detection of shape, colours and textures is
becoming mandatory for many products (from tiles to cars, from food to
airplane components) made of a variety of materials (fabric, marble,
leather, plastic and so on) to meet increasingly demanding quality
standards. For this reason, several researchers have been studying parallel
architectures, special chips and algorithms for real-time defect detection.
Thanks to such new technologies, many new applications have already become
possible, and others, unfeasible until today because of the limitations of
inspection methods, are being developed and implemented.
AIM: The aim of this special issue is to inform practitioners as well as
researchers timely of innovative defect detection techniques and their
SCOPE: The special issue is focussed on real-time techniques and
architectures, both software and hardware, for
- recognition and classification of defects;
- detection of defects in texture and pattern;
- detection of shape defects;
- detection of defects in colour;
- defect modeling: fractals, statistic, etc.;
- automatic acquisition of models suitable for defect detection;
- validation techniques for defect detectors.
