Webcast Description:

In vision systems, image processing techniques can be used for color measurement, color matching, and color-based identification. As each of these has different requirements, success demands different tools. Too often, the tools and methods that work well for one application are applied to another with disappointing results.

Color, and color-like (sometimes called false-color), vision system usage is expanding beyond simple factory applications and into areas such as robotics of many types, vehicle navigation, agriculture, security, etc. There it may be called upon to quickly learn to reliably identify items of complex color and/or shape.

In a free webcast on May 17, Dr. Robert McConnell, President of WAY-2C will provide detailed information on color theory, the types of methods that can be used, and how successful robust, automated identification of complex items can be accomplished using tools based on probability and information theory.

The presentation will be followed by a question and answer period, so bring your color-based identification questions to the table!


Presented by:

Dr. Robert McConnell
President
WAY-2C


Dr. McConnell received a B.S.E from Princeton University, M.A.Sc. and Ph.D. from the University of Toronto. Past positions include Director of Research, Wayland Research, Inc.; technical staff, Arthur D. Little, Inc.; Visiting Professor, University of Rhode Island and President, Earth Sciences Research Inc.

His professional interests focus on information theory based statistical pattern recognition methods for color, hyperspectral, and other images.
They include development of WAY-2C a color machine vision software system for inspection and process control, used in such industries as automotive, food, recycling, wood, and consumer products.

He is a frequent speaker on machine vision and image analysis at trade meetings and the author of over 35 professional papers and two comprehensive pattern recognition patents. Memberships include AIA, SME, SPIE, ASPRS and the steering committee of the Boston Chapter of the IEEE Robotics and Automation Society.
