Limitations in quality control performance represent an obstacle in evolution of the Stone Processing Industry. A way to automated surface analysis is pivotal in realising improved product quality and greater operational efficiency thus reducing the environmental impact of stone processing and reducing product s time to market. Such improvements are considered to be of major significance to the European SME proposers to secure existing markets and to develop new opportunities.
This project aims to consolidate the technical know-how and bridge the technological gaps to allow the development of an automated classification system for ornamental stone slabs and tiles (PROVIPS) based on the development of an innovative spectral sensor to be used within a new type of spectral camera. Such a capability will help the European stone sector by providing a versatile classification tool for lot appearance standardization according to end-user requirements thus enhancing distribution networks by way of greater acceptability of the product and higher productivity at the stone processing stage. Moreover, the new sensor will allow European Vision System Sector to get the chance to renew their offer on existing markets and to find new markets as well.
