Abstract
Dynamic inspection of moving objects is a significant task in industrial machine vision systems. Time Delay and Integration (TDI) cameras are being used in some industries for solving problems encountered while using conventional CCD cameras for imaging moving objects. The CCD camera which works in TDI mode is equivalent to a digital drum camera providing possibilities for dynamic inspection on moving objects (either rotating or translating on industrial platforms). Here we report some advances in the application of TDI cameras for inspection and profiling of moving objects. The method is based on the conventional light projection systems which is widely used in industries. The TDI system generates an on-line scanning moire display which could assist operators to identify defects on objects such as dents. Conventional projection systems use mechanical or interferometric type of fringe projections, which is not desirable in the industrial environment. The TDI system makes use of temporal modulation of the projected light which could be easily controlled by a PC or by the output ports in vision systems. In addition to the details of system implementation, we also describe two algorithms for unwrapping the deformation or shape profile of the test object based on fast Fourier transform and sinusoidal fitting on the recorded patterns.
