Title: Analysis of Deep Learning and its roles in Machine Vision


Digitalization is firmly entrenched in industrial production, with processes becoming increasingly automated as part of the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). Various machines and robots perform more routine production tasks in the IIoT, also known as Industry 4.0. Machine vision technology for automated visual inspection is becoming more accessible and capable thanks to artificial intelligence, specifically machine learning via deep learning. Deep learning mimics how the human brain processes visual input, but with the speed and robustness of a computerised system. The technology ensures quality in the manufacturing industry while also controlling production costs and improving customer satisfaction.

Deep-learning technologies and convolutional neural networks (CNNs) from the field of artificial intelligence (AI) are making their way into machine vision to assist image-processing systems in learning and distinguishing between defects, making identification processes more precise. Traditional image processing and analysis are still used to locate regions of interest within images, which speeds up the overall process and makes it more robust.  

CNNs must first be trained before they can be used for deep learning. This training process relates to the object's external features, such as colour, shape, texture, and surface structure. Based on these properties, the objects are classified and allocated more precisely later. A developer must laboriously define and manually verify the individual features in traditional machine vision methods. However, self-learning algorithms are used in deep learning to automatically find and extract unique patterns in order to differentiate between specific classes. In this session, Deep Learning and its roles in Machine Vision are investigated extensively. Real world case studies such as Image classification and Defect detection are discussed in this session.

Title: Automatic bearing surface tiny defect detection based on multi-angle illuminations

Abstract: Bearings are very common mechanical components that are widely used in all kinds of machines. Currently, bearing surface defect detection is mainly completed by naked-eye observation. This manual detection mode has low reliability and is time consuming (especially for miniature bearings). We present an automatic synthetic tiny defect (small defects that are difficult to find at vertical angles) detection system for bearing surfaces with self-developed software and hardware. Under two illumination modes in this system, thresholding segmentation, contour extraction, contour filtering, center location, region zoning and text recognition are successively implemented. Finally, four common defects (gap, stain, shrunken lid and scratch defects) are automatically detected. The experimental results show that this system has a high detection success rate and short time consumption. This method can provide technical support for real engineering applications involving bearing manufacturing and screening.
