Andrej Šmuc (2011) Program module for control of production processes with use of digital camera. EngD thesis.
The diploma thesis describes software solution for controlling industrial processes with the help of digital camera. The developed software module is a part of application developed originally for optic fibre preform manufacturing, but can also be applied to other fields of industry. The digital camera solution functions as an independent module inside control application. During manufacturing process it captures images of manufactured part and sends them into its subsystem for further processing. Module is developed in such a manner that multiple different algorithms can easily be applied to images, according to process needs. Acquired data is then sent to various devices, which are part of bigger SCADA system. Camera control module is custom made control system useful in real industrial environment, where adaptation to process changes plays a vital role in production of high quality products. Since developed solution solves specific industrial problem as a whole, the diploma also describes basics of automation and process control. Basic elements needed for computer based process control are also described. In contrast to more widely accepted solutions in industry, software was developed using Microsoft .NET framework. The diploma tries to introduce the aspect of developing automation solutions from .NET developer's point of view. It also discusses advantages of using such technology in contrast to more traditional technologies used in automation.
