Summary:
Vision systems have been widely used for parts inspection in electronics assembly lines. In order to improve the overall performance of a visual inspection system, it is important to employ an efficient object recognition algorithm. In this thesis work, a genetic algorithm based correlation algorithm is designed for the task of visual electronic parts inspection. The proposed procedure is composed of two stages. In the first stage, a genetic algorithm is devised to find a sufficient number of candidate image windows. For each candidate window, the correlation is performed between the sampled template and the image pattern inside the window. In the second stage, local searches are conducted in the neighborhood of these candidate windows. Among all the searched locations, the one that has a highest correlation value with the given template is selected as the best matched location. To apply the genetic algorithm technique, a number of important issues, such as selection of a fitness function, design of a coding scheme, and tuning of genetic parameters are addressed in the thesis. Experimental studies have confirmed that the proposed GA-based correlation method is much more effective in terms of accuracy and speed in locating the desired object, compared with the existing Monte-Carlo random search method.
