This report addresses the key concerns of industry relating to the implementation of optics in measurement, monitoring and control processes where their advantages, including immunity from electrical noise, no requirement for physical contact and high resolution, are significant. These selected papers, which include a case study, look at methods of integration of optical technologies with existing electrical, mechanical and electronic systems. Emphasis is placed on the cost and value-added benefits of applying optics. After a brief overview of the application of optics for industrial process monitoring, papers under "On-line condition monitoring of industrial equipment and processes" looks at: optical fibre sensors (OFS) for conditioning monitoring of electrical distribution plant, application of high-performance gas filter correlation to on-line emissions measurements, UV DOA-spectroscopy on stationary sources of pollutants, near-infrared spectroscopy - looking into the process and OFS for single point and distributed measurands - techniques and commercial prospects. "Safety issues for optics in industrial environments" discusses intrinsically safe photoelectric sensing and safety issues of optical technology. "Case study in machine control using vision techniques" deals with the use of structured lighting in machine tool control. "Automating surface and 3-D inspection using optical techniques" reviews: industrially-proven methods of 3-D inspection and measurement by machine vision techniques, multi-channel dynamic thresholding optical sensor detects smally defects in industrial web optical inspection, automatic inspection of ceramic tiles and the automated inspection of lace using machine vision. "Tomorrow's vision - tools, technologies and standards" covers: high-speed image analysis - image capturing - the choice of recording media, low-cost silicon-based integrated optics for sensors and communications, application of Monte Carlo techniques to the assessment of optical systems, and future applications for industrial visual inspection and the need for standardization.
