Automated visual inspection and classification using neural networks

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper

Abstract

This research presents schemes for automated visual inspection for boundary defects and classification using neural networks. An efficient method for representing circular boundaries is proposed utilizing a curvature and circular fitting algorithm. For the classification schemes, two types of neural network models are established. First, a multi-layer perception is discussed for defect classification problems. Second, a Hopfield network is modeled to be used for continuous-type variables by minimizing the energy function. Extensive tests are conducted on castings, then the results of neural networks are compared with those of traditional pattern classifiers.
