This paper deals with problems and solutions in applications of Image Analysis Systems. Important applications are visual inspection, sensor-controlled handling and assembly, and the control of tools, machines, or processes. When designing Image Analysis Systems one must not only solve image analysis problems: the whole workplace must be engineered in order to reach practical solutions. One particular requirement for Image Analysis Systems is the capability of real-time processing. Selected

It is pointed out why practical systems perform binary image processing, and it is argued that this suffices for many practical tasks. A brief survey of existing systems shows the state-of-the-art and a discussion of applications illustrates the power of these systems.
