An computer-vision-based system for color fastness testing of textiles

Based on the computer vision and image processing technology, a computer aided system for textile color fastness testing is designed and implemented. By transforming the color space from RGB into CIELAB and adjusting the transformation parameters, the designed system eliminates the influence of image illumination and noise. The evaluation system of textile color fastness is established. This system is verified by experiments with ISO standard color card and actual textile samples. The experimental results show that the method for color fastness testing in the designed detection system is substantially correct though with some errors. This system could be applied to practical testing in the future, thereby saving a lot of manpower and financial resources and improving testing efficiency.

Key words:computer vision,image processing,color fastness testing,evaluation on color difference,ISO standard color card,manual measurement,quality control of textiles
