Interesting, but I suspect that in the long run, this "system" will drive the operators, quality inspectors, and plant managers literally insane. They will be buffing until the cows come home, and then some.

From the article:

“Minute particles can enter a shop floor from multiple environmental sources, machinery or workers, which makes paint quality one of the toughest variables to control in production,” he tells WardsAuto. “The (new) technology is efficient enough to capture 100% of production.”

The system does nothing to prevent the particles. All it does is identify the particles that will inevitably be there.

I am not sure this is actually a good thing.
