Special Issue on Vision Based Sensors and Systems in Industrial Engineering

Call for Papers

The recent advances in vision based sensors and systems have provided innovative solutions in the eld of industrial engineering. Several industrial activities have beneted from the application of image based technology. ese activities spread along all the product lifecycles and include the design stage (e.g., reverse engineering), manufacturing (e.g., machine vision for automation or custom product development), and quality control. Vision based sensors and systems improve productivity and quality management and provide a competitive advantage to industries that employ these technologies.

This special issue of sensors will focus on all innovative aspects of the research and development related to this eld. Original research papers that focus on the design and experimental verication of new sensors and imaging systems, as well as papers that focus on their testing for industrial applications, are welcome.

We invite authors to contribute both reviews and original research articles that will illustrate and stimulate the continuing research in this eld of the industrial engineering. Reviews should provide an up-to-date overview of the current state of the art in a particular application and include main results from several research groups.

Potential topics include but are not limited to the following:

Reverse Engineering
Machine vision
Pattern recognition
Automated inspection
Quality control
Optical methods in experimental mechanics
