This Clinic project applies a classification system on finished wood veneer panels as a means of quality control. The image classification algorithm detects color differences between a given sample of finished wood veneer and its “master” (expected veneer color). The algorithm rates the degree of agreement between these two colors and provides a grade to express whether these differences are likely acceptable.
