An optical-flow-based monitoring method for measuring translational motion in infrared-thermographic images of AFP processes

This paper presents a novel method for a precise localization of the automated-fiber-placement head, without the need for a data access to the machine control. It is based on a sub-pixel accurate optical-flow-algorithm which determines information …
