integration of the latest device and material developments within practical optical processors for use in industrial inspection, quality control, associative classification and signal processing.
The feasibility of optical processors for object recognition in laboratory environments was successfully demonstrated in projects 534 and 1035 (COOP).
Different optical processing architectures were compared so as to fully exploit the technology developed in earlier projects in new applications. This led to a recommendation for a practical architecture suitable for application to industrial problems in the very near future.
A demonstrator integrating this architecture in a practical industrial application was completed by the end of 1991.
Components of the system will be reused in further designs by Thomson-CSF. The demonstrator will form a basis for advanced industrial applications in user organisations, and in the successor project, NAOPIA II (6676).
