Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Automated vision inspection systems are the most versatile non-contact inspection systems. They are fast, compact, and remarkably accurate, thereby making 100% on-line inspection possible in modern manufacturing systems. Roundness in one of the basic geometric elements in engineering design and manufacturing. As a result its inspection is an important part of the inspection of many industrial parts. This paper presents two least-squares techniques to determine the out-of-roundness error of circular production parts. This error is measured with respect to an ideal circle of specified radius.
