In this paper, a novel optical inspection system is presented that is directly suitable for Industry 4.0 and the implementation on IoT-devices controlling the manufacturing process. The proposed system is capable of distinguishing between erroneous and faultless weld seams, without explicitly defining measurement criteria. The developed system uses a deep neural network based classifier for the class prediction. A weld seam dataset was acquired and labelled by an expert committee. Thereby, the…

Quality assessment in laser welding: a critical review

Quality assessment methods and techniques for laser welding have been developed both in- and post-process. This paper summarizes and presents relevant studies being classified according to the

ImageNet classification with deep convolutional neural networks

A large, deep convolutional neural network was trained to classify the 1.2 million high-resolution images in the ImageNet LSVRC-2010 contest into the 1000 different classes and employed a recently developed regularization method called "dropout" that proved to be very effective.
