Abstract: This thesis presents possible applications for Computer Vision based systems in the field of Laboratory Automation and applicable camera-based, multi-camera-based or flatbed scanner based imaging devices. A concept of a software framework for CV applications is developed with respect to hardware compatibility, data processing and user interfaces. An application is implemented using the framework. It aims at the detection of low-volume liquids in microtiter plates, a labware standard. Using this algorithm, it is possible to cover a wide range of labware on different imaging hardware.
