This paper presents a quality control vision system developed for the inspection of cork parquets that is already applied in the Portuguese cork industry. It is devoted specifically to the most critical quality issues: visibility of the lowest layer (BASE) on the noble layer (UPPER) and the homogeneity of this noble layer. Since these aspects are related with the texture of the raw material, the system was based on texture segmentation techniques. Features used were extracted from detail images of the wavelet transform. The classifier consists of a fuzzy grammar inference system. The segmentation procedure revealed a good performance indicated by high classification rates. Behavior in the industrial environment has been demonstrating high performance, revealing good perspectives for full spread industrialization.
