abstract

A real-time pilot system for defect detection and classification of web textile fabric is presented in this paper. The general hardware and software platform, developed for solving this problem, is presented and a powerful novel method for defect detection is proposed. This method gives good results in the detection of low contrast defects under real industrial conditions, where the presence of many types of noise is an inevitable phenomenon. For the defect classification an artificial neural network, trained by using a back-propagation algorithm, is implemented. Using a reduced number of possible defect classes, the system gives consistent and repeatable results with sufficient speed.
