Yesterday, image analysis applied in biology and medecine, principally to microscopic observation of cells. Nowadays, it's established more and more in industry with the growth of the automation market. This paper describes, at first, some generalities about basic principles in image analysis. Then, it details the system SAMBATMused at S.C.R., and finally, puts forward the metrological applications which have been developped such as the cut width measurement of tobacco shred, the perforation measurement on tipping paper the spots measurement on cigarette paper and the detection of misprint.
