GAGESIGHT is a computer vision system recently integrated into production which demonstrates new flexibility in production automation technology. The vision algorithm accommodates significant misregistration in the position and orientation of objects, and adjusts process control parameters accordingly. The GAGESIGHT system is easily reconfigured for inspecting new types of objects by executing a teach program, and responding to a few instructions at an interactive display console. GAGESIGHT, intially intended for the automatic inspection and assembly of pointers and other components to instrument gauges, is finding new applications as well since the approach employed makes few assumptions regarding the objects being viewed.
