The problem presented in this paper is how to find similarities between digital images useful in design cybernetic vision systems. The solution to this problem stems from a neighbourhood based vision system. A neighbourhood is viewed in the context of a covering of a visual space defined by tolerance relations. A consideration of neighbourhoods and tolerance classes leads to a highly practical tolerance near set approach in vision systems. The contribution of this article is an algorithm for finding tolerance classes, a new measure for quantifying the similarity between tolerance classes, and a practical application of the tolerance space approach.
