This paper considers regularity analysis for patterned texture material inspection. Patterned texture-like fabric is built on a repetitive unit of a pattern. Regularity is one of the most important features in many textures. In this paper, a new patterned texture inspection approach called the regular bands (RB) method is described. First, the properties of textures and the meaning of regularity measurements are presented. Next, traditional regularity analysis for patterned textures is introduced. Many traditional approaches such as co-occurrence matrices, autocorrelation, traditional image subtraction and hash function are based on the concept of periodicity. These approaches have been applied for image retrieval, image synthesis, and defect detection of patterned textures. In this paper, a new measure of periodicity for patterned textures is described. The Regular Bands method is based on the idea of periodicity. A detailed description of the RB method with definitions, procedures, and explanations is given. There is also a detailed evaluation using the Regular Bands of some patterned textures. Three kinds of patterned fabric samples are used in the evaluation and a high detection success rate is achieved. Finally, there is a discussion of the method and some conclusions.
