The impressive current advances in the field of image acquisition devices opened new possibilities for developing cost effective solutions for industrial process monitoring. Various devices like remote controlled photo cameras, IP web cameras, mobile phones and / or single board computers enable various strategies for data acquisition automation and analysis. The choice of an optimum solution require finding the balance between image quality, programming effort, reliability and costs as well as considering the particularities of the industrial process being monitored.

Details of the assignment

The aim of this project is to select and develop an image acquisition system for statistical process control of an industrial process producing automotive body parts by sheet metal forming. Monitoring of the process parameters involve edge detection and quantification of edge displacement measurements.
