Abstract

Abstract The paper describes a complete visual inspection system, including the SIP sequential image processor, accompanying software and an algorithm for inspecting biscuits in production. It also analyses the performance of the SIP system. Bit-slice technology is used because of the constraints imposed by industrial manufacture, particularly cost, speed and adaptability. The SIP has been found capable of coping with product rates of ∼ 11 products per second in a typical (rectangular biscuit) inspection task, though with suitable additional circuitry this capability should rise to ∼ 30 products per second.
