In this paper, an automatic visual inspection system for checking the colored wires in electric cable is presented. The system is able to insert the cables wires through motors and rooting wires in correct block with the help of cable separator. This variability is managed in an automatic way by means of a learning subsystem which require to give manual input from the operator. once the model of a correct wire is rooted with sensor, it can automatically inspected to particular block.The main contributions of this paper are: color wire recognition is done with the help of color sensor. This work is motivated by the need of performing an accurate quality control an automated inspection method is necessary for effectively assuring a quality check on 80%. software system is composed by two main modules: the ?rst one localizes the wires from where to source the wire, while the second performs color detection where to root the wire. This paper explains how it is possible to recognize the wires in many different ways; moreover, a reliable method for identifying colors.
