Fabric defect detection and classification plays an important role in inspection of fabric products. Many fabric defects are very small and undistinguishable, which can be detected only by monitoring the variation in the intensity. Currently, in almost all the fabric industries the process of defect detection is done manually using skilled labor. An automated defect detection and identification system would naturally enhance the product quality and result in improved productivity to meet both…
