The mission of Profactor is to stimulate advanced research in manufacturing sciences, as well as to enable the development and application of new manufacturing concepts and technologies. Currently 110 academic scientists from all technical fields are employed. The machine vision group at Profactor, which is involved in the MINET Coordination Action and is coordinating the MtI-project “Syntex”, comprises employees from fields such as mathematics, computer science, mechatronics, physics and mechanical engineering. This group has gathered extensive experience in machine vision in applied areas such as surface inspection but also in research topics such as machine learning and adpative vision systems or texture analysis and synthesis.
