Automated visual inspection (AVI) systems these days are considered essential in the assembly of surface-mounted devices (SMDs) in the electronics industry. This industry has faced the problem of rapid introduction and retirement of SMD-based products with the consequent obsolescence of the inspection systems already in the assembly lines. The constant introduction of new products has caused AVI systems to become rapidly obsolete. The general goal of this research centers on developing self… CONTINUE READING
