Automatic deform detection on automotive body panel is challenging owing to its localization on a large surface, variation in appearance, and their rare occurrences. It is difficult to detect these deforms either by original models or by small-sample statistics using a single threshold. As a consequence, this problem is focussed to derive a lot of good-quality deform detected from the surface images. These detections should discriminate the various surface deforms when fed to suitable image

It segments the deformation by using Fuzzy C-Means (FCM) segmentation. The algorithm is being test on three samples which are car door model, curve and flat surface with two types of deformations which is ding and dent deformations that occur on the surface.
