This ongoing research examines the consistency of fill distribution in down and synthetic quilted comforters manufactured by Cuddledown in Yarmouth. Automated visual inspection uses a digital camera that captures an image of down distribution in a production cell. The captured image is then fed into a computer for processing. The project’s primary goal is to determine the feasibility of augmenting and/or replacing the existing manual quality control process with a computer vision system.
