Rhopoint TAMS™ is a new technology that models the human perception of surface appearance quality, providing new parameters that revolutionize the understanding and communication of visual appearance information. Color and appearance management are essential in many areas of today’s automotive manufacturing environment and require the ability to measure subtle differences in color. The Rhopoint TAMS records the images at different focus levels and computes the characteristics with the aid of perception algorithms.


  • Defines quality and harmony in appearance.
  • Uses four parameters to produce a comprehensive description of the visual sensation: Contrast, image sharpness, waviness, and dominant structure size (dimension).
  • Captures surface data for mid gloss and high gloss surfaces.
