Due to the current technological and scientific advancement in the industrial context, the quality standard of the products has been increasingly demanded, and the visual aspect has become a determining feature in the commercial success of a brand or product. Therefore, the automation of quality inspection procedures is highly requested, especially in the automotive sector, where the inspection of paint quality is still done visually by an experienced worker in the area.Then, this work aims to create an algorithm for identifying defects in paintings that can be used in low-cost hardware and makes up one of the steps in the automation of painting inspection.
