Conference paper


This paper presents an automated system as a solution to the 100% control of manufactured parts in a FMS environment. The technique used is based on comparison between pictures acquired through a vision system and the corresponding data gained from a CAD system. Comparison takes place as well at feature level than at image level. All kind of inspections, ranging from conformity checking up to metrology, can be achieved through use of a user friendly planning system. The paper is based on work of ESPRIT Project P2091 “VIMP”.
