This chapter is divided into two parts . In the first part, we discuss the most relevant image analysis and machine vision techniques, starting with the analysis of pixel values and particle measurements . Another main topic is an introduction to pattern matching .
The exercises in this chapter, like the ones before, mainly describe how to use specific functions directly in LabVIEW and IMAQ Vision. Although it would be possible to use the IMAQ Vision Builder (I do use it in some cases), I focus on IMAQ Vision programs because of their greater flexibility.
The second part of this chapter deals with some application examples, which use some of the described techniques.
