Abstract
(TCP/IP) based, anonymous communication environment is introduced. The main system capabilities are central configurability and maintainability of the image processing nodes and the scalability of the framework. Furthermore a watchdog concept and IEC61131 conform signal integration comprising the Modbus/TCP protocol are integrated within the framework. A communication structure based on the tuplespace concept is presented. The possibility of integrating heterogeneous nodes is achieved by a consistent JavaTM implementation. As a proof of concept, a quality observation task at distributed observation points at a wire rolling mill is introduced. An image-processing algorithm based on least-squares fitting of parallel lines to observe quality relevant parameters is introduced and integrated as an exemplary machine vision implementation within the framework.
