Abstract

The paper presents a new approach to texture analysis. The need for a more formal definition of the term surface texture is first identified, and an appropriate texture taxonomy proposed. A method of analysis is described, synthesising innovative elements of machine vision and computer graphics to achieve an object‐centred inspection technique, which is both robust and flexible in application. A selection of experimental results is presented in the paper.
