1. Discuss the operation and the limitations of current on-machine probing means using contact probes. Why might such methods be not viable with energy field manufacturing methods?
2. Describe the general implementation issues that need to be considered for any sensor application to be successful. How might this apply to areas in your own work?
3. Review the basic terms of repeatability, resolution, accuracy, dynamic range, and speed, and describe how you might use each feature to decide if a particular sensor is appropriate to a given application.
4. Describe the basic building blocks of a machine vision system. What are some applications that machine vision may be good for and what applications may not be right for machine vision?
