Abstract

Morphological transformations are applied to industrial inspection problems. A real time optical architecture to implement morphological transformations such as erosion, opening, closing, and skeletonization is described and analyzed. The first real time optical laboratory results of erosion and opening are presented for locating string in tobacco.
