Fault identification in regular patterns

Hi Everyone, I’m quite the newbee in this forum so I hope this is the most approriate place to post this question.

I would like to get some advise on recognising faults in fabrics. I’ve attached an image with a fault. (Please ignore the vertical line in the middle). The idea is to develop an algorithm that automatically identifies the faults in the images. The question is what is the best approach for this?

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

I did a quick literature search and found this:

Thanks, dinobots. I’ll have a read.
