The aim of the project is the design and realisation of an embedded parallel real-time system for the on-line quality control of finished textile products.
The project has strong potential for impact in the textile-manufacturing process by addressing one of the most difficult tasks in the implementation of a fully automatic plant. It will customise a general-purpose software and hardware platform for quality control in the production of textiles. The system to be defined will be sufficiently generic to be applicable to other industrial sectors. The project makes extensive use of HPCN technology in order to achieve the performance needed in this real-time environment.
A fundamental aspect of the industrial prototype will be its cost, significantly lower than that of existing systems and compatible with the requirements of industrial SMEs. It is estimated that the potential world market for such medium-sized systems lies between 500 and 1000 installations. It is expected that an even bigger market exists for scaled-down smaller systems.
