Industrial Vision, Sensors and Quality Control


Prerequisite/Recommended prerequisite for participation in the module

This module is based on knowledge gained in the module Digital Manufacturing Technology or Digital Manufacturing and Service.

Content, progress and pedagogy of the module

To provide the student with an understanding of state-of-art sensory devices for automation control (AC) and quality control (QC).

Learning objectives


  • Must have knowledge about engineering design
  • Must have knowledge about quality control principles
  • Must have knowledge about state-of-art sensory devices, such as temperature, touch, vision


  • Must be able to explain typical application of sensors for AC and QC
  • Must be able to use common sensory devices for AC and QC, in particular visual sensors as the most general one.
  • Must be able to rationalize and justify a specific choice of sensor for a given application w.r.t. technical capabilities and cost.
  • Must be able to discuss and evaluate the use of a specific sensor choice for a given application problem.


  • Must have the competencies to apply design rules, principles and guidelines

Type of instruction

The module is carried out as group-based problem-oriented project work. The group work is carried out as an independent work process in which the students themselves organize and coordinate their workload in collaboration with a supervisor. The project is carried out in groups with normally no more than 6 members.

Extent and expected workload

Since it is a 5 ECTS course module the expected workload is 150 hours for the student.
