The article presents information on an exhibition of sensors, measurement and instrumentation, held at Birmingham, Great Britain. With the dedicated Image Processing and Optical Technology and Machine Vision shows as part of its nine-strong portfolio, it was not surprising that last month's Mid Atlantic Technology Conference and exhibition at Birmingham's NEC attempted to put its visitors in the picture, quite literally, about its various display of sensors, measurement and instrumentation. Among the traditional displays of sensors and data acquisition equipment was a host of companies whose products acquire and present data in user-friendly visual formats.

    Image registration is an important task in image processing. In this paper, a new and fast contour-based image registration algorithm is proposed. In this algorithm, we fetch contour points and calculate the normal angles firstly, then figure out the histogram of the contour-feature points. By...

    Extraction of metric properties from perspective view is a challenging task in many machine vision applications. Most conventional approaches typically first recover the perspective transformation parameters up to a similarity transform and make measurements in the resulting rectified image. In...

    We demonstrate surface-image synthesis of moving, spinning cylindrical objects using a commercially available high-speed area scan camera. The frame rate used in the demonstration experiment was 1,000 fps, which is sufficient to achieve surface-image synthesis of cylinders spun at up to 36 rps....
