Machine vision systems present novel solutions in industrial automation field. Vision systems employ a combination of hardware and software components to collect image-based information. This information is used to automate visual inspection, robot guidance or other industrial applications. Surface inspection and dimensional verification are vision applications which focus on qualitative parameters. In the surface inspection, scratches, cracks or other irregularities and in the dimensional verification, characteristics related to shape and dimensions are inspected. Robustness is an integral factor in every vision system, changes in parameters like illumination, part angle or position should not alter the system judgment.
