Automated Visual Inspection System for Specifying Brick Quality


Automated visual inspection system has been developed to specify brick quality and the accepting of the bricks in a production line. This system is based on CMOS web-camera placed in manufacture line. Depending on diameters, area, perimeter and cracks of a brick, a strong algorithm has been developed, and this algorithm is created to befit the required for measuring bricks quality. The quality is measured by fuzzy system which can give percent accepting to a brick under the test. Fuzzy reasoning gives the system more reliability than other inspection system.
