    Abstract

    The concept of Machine Vision (MV) originates in the early 1950’s and practical MV
    applications appeared in the early 1980’s. Early theoretical work suggested serious
    limitations in computational abilities as the main reason for inefficient use of MV. MV is a ‘simple’ processing system which receives and combines signals from cameras by manipulating images at the pixel level to extract information that can be used in a decision making activity to produce the output required. MV has several advantages over systems utilising conventional technologies.
