Abstract
In recent years image-processing has become a central part of optical inspection and measurement systems. Typically, after measuring the given specimen by utilizing a suitable sensor, image-processing algorithms are used to detect dedicated features such as surface defects. These algorithms are usually designed, optimized, and tested by an image-processing expert according to the task specifications. A methodology (based on genetic programming) is presented to automatically generate, optimize, and test such algorithms without the necessity of an image-processing expert. We also present several examples of inspection tasks to support the concept. For efficiency, an automated multi-scale multi-sensor inspection strategy is employed.
