Visual inspection is a common feature of manufacturing for which machines are currently illsuited. A major problem has been in bringing enough knowledge to bear on the camera input, fast enough, to be of practical value. This paper describes a machine architecture for such expert vision research in the domain of pattern inspection: in particular, the inspection of printed wiring patterns. The machine includes a powerful model of image-to-symbol transduction and a Lisp multiprocessor environment.
