This paper introduces a high-speed vision system called IDP Express, which can execute real-time image processing and High-Frame-Rate (HFR) video recording simultaneously. In IDP Express, 512×512 pixel images from two camera heads and the processed results on a dedicated FPGA (Field Programmable Gate Array) board are transferred to standard PC memory at a rate of 1000 fps or more. Owing to the simultaneous HFR video processing and recording, IDP Express can be used as an intelligent video logging system for long-term high-speed phenomenon analysis. In this paper, a real-time abnormal behavior detection algorithm was implemented on IDP-Express to capture HFR videos of crucial moments of unpredictable abnormal behaviors in high-speed periodic motions. Several experiments were performed for a high-speed slider machine with repetitive operation at a frequency of 15 Hz and videos of the abnormal behaviors were automatically recorded to verify the effectiveness of our intelligent HFR video logging system.
