Abstract

This paper proposes a TFT-LCD defect blob detection algorithm using the sequential defect detection method. First, for every pixel, a defect possibility is determined by the intensity difference and the defect candidates are detected according to the sequential defect detection method. For detected candidate pixels, the defect probability that indicates a potential included in the defect according to the each step. By applying the morphological operation, blobs are comprised of the detected candidates and the defect blobs are detected using the defect possibility of blobs. The validity of the proposed method was demonstrated a simulated image and also then it was tested a real TFT-LCD image. By the experimental results, the proposed method is very effective in TFT-LCD detect detection.

본 논문에서는 순차적 결함 검출 방법을 이용하여 TFT-LCD의 결함 영역(Blob)을 효과적으로 검출하는 알고리즘을 제안한다. 먼저 결함과 배경 간의 휘도 차를 이용하여 영상의 각 화소들에 대한 결함 확률을 판단하고, 결함 확률에 따른 순차적 결함 검출 방법을 이용하여 결함 후보 화소를 검출한다. 여기서 결함 확률이란 결함 후보 화소가 검출된 단계에 따라 결함 영역에 포함될 가능성을 나타내다. 형태학 연산을 적용함으로써 검출된 후보 화소들을 후보 결함 영역으로 형성하고, 각 후보 결함 영역에 대한 결함 가능성을 계산하여 결함 영역을 검출한다. 모의 TFT-LCD 영상을 생성하여 제안 방법의 타당성을 검증하고, 실제 TFT-LCD 영상에 적용함으로서 제안 알고리즘의 우수한 결함 검출 성능을 확인하였다.
