Summary: Abstract-- Experts forecast that globalization and open
economy will be the characteristic of the 21st
century. Industry
in developing countries must be well prepared and competitive
in order to have a vital role. These countries will not be able to
access global markets unless they procure the needed
technology to manufacture high quality, up to the standard
products. Automated visual inspection is one of these emerging
technologies. Higher production speeds require higher
inspection speeds which can be implemented best by replacing
human visual inspection procedures by machine vision
inspection systems. This paper presents an online machine
vision system design that is capable of detecting defects in
rubber coating of metal lids during manufacturing. The system
is simple and low cost consisting of a CCD camera mounted on a
conveyer belt and connected to a PC through FireWire (IEEE
1394). Image acquisition, analysis, and inspection are
implemented using National Instrument's (NI) Vision Builder
tool. The inspection algorithm is realized through a four stage
process: starting with acquisition to enhancement, thresholding
