Abstract

This paper describes a framework for detecting regions of special interest, like reflexes and shadows in industrial scenes. A new approach involving Artificial Intelligence techniques is tested; in fact procedural approaches exhibit several drawbacks such as lack of flexibility and of transparency in knowledge representation because knowledge is buried in code. A Knowledge-based system is proposed that is strictly interfaced with several low level image processing tools.

A brief description of the image processing modules is presented together with details concerning knowledge representation and the control strategy adopted. For a better understanding of the system performance and man-machine interface, a detailed analysis session is reported.
