Abstract. The paper deals with the development of a system for automatic weld recognition using new information technologies based on cloud computing and single-board computer in the context of Industry 4.0. The proposed system is based on a visual system for weld recognition, and a neural network based on cloud computing for real-time weld evaluation, both implemented on a single-board low-cost computer. The proposed system was successfully verified on welding samples which correspond to a real welding process in the car production process. The system considerably contributes to the welds diagnostics in industrial processes of small- and medium-sized enterprises.
