Special Issue - Integrated Imaging and Vision
Techniques for Industrial Inspection

Imaging- and vision-based techniques play an important role in industrial inspection. The sophistication of the techniques assures high-quality performance of the manufacturing process through precise positioning, online monitoring, and real-time classification. Advanced systems incorporating multiple imaging and/or vision modalities provide robust solutions to complex situations and problems in industrial applications. A diverse range of industries, in-
cluding aerospace, automotive, electronics, pharmaceutical, biomedical, semiconductor, and food/beverage, etc., have benefited from recent advances in multi-modal imaging, data fusion, and computer vision technologies. The purpose of this special issue is to highlight such advances and demonstrate the successful applications of multi-modal imaging and vision technologies in industrial inspection.

Papers that advance the theories of multi-modal imaging, data fusion, and vision techniques or tackle challenges in practical applications are invited. In addition to conventional vision technologies, imaging modalities of interest include X-ray , Terahertz imaging, and ultrasonic testing. The contributions should be original and must not have been presented and/or published (or currently under consideration) in any other form.

Topics include (but are not limited to) the following:
▪ Automated defect identification and classification with multi-modal imaging techniques;
▪ Multi-sensor image fusion for inspection;
▪ Multi-modal vision system design and implementation;
▪ Precise measurements with 3D vision and multi-modal geometry reconstruction;
▪ Registration of multi-modal inspection data;
▪ Multi-camera system and array for inspection;
▪ Multi-spectrum imaging and analysis;
▪ Visualization of multi-modal nondestructive inspection data;
▪ 3D volumetric image processing;
▪ Other applications.

Machine Vision and Applications accepts high-quality technical contributions which are within its aims and scope in both long and short paper formats. Long papers may not be over 30 manuscript pages in length (12 point type, double-spaced, 5 cm margins (2 inch) on one side of the paper only) including figures, references, acknowledgements, footnotes, tables, and captions. All papers should be written in English. Further guidelines can be viewed at http://www.springerlink.com/content/100522/.
