COLOR HALFTONING AND ACOUSTIC ANOMALY DETECTION FOR PRINTING SYSTEMS
In the first chapter, we illustrate a big picture of the printing systems and the concentration of this dissertation.
In the second chapter, we present a tone-dependent fast error diffusion algorithm for color images, in which the quantizer is based on a simulated linearized printer space and the filter weight function depends on the ratio of the luminance of the current pixel to the maximum luminance value. The pixels are processed according to a serpentine scan instead of the classic raster scan. We compare the results of our algorithm to those achieved using
the fixed Floyd-Steinberg weights and processing the image according to a raster scan ordering. In the third chapter, we first design a defect generator to generate the synthetic abnormal
printer sounds, and then develop or explore three features for sound-based anomaly detection. In the fourth chapter, we explore six classifiers as our anomaly detection models, and explore or develop six augmentation methods to see whether or not an augmented dataset can improve the model performance. In the fifth chapter, we illustrate the data arrangement and the evaluation methods. Finally, we show the evaluation results based on
different inputs, different features, and different classifiers.
In the last chapter, we summarize the contributions of this dissertation.
