Owner of Lecky Integration (Little Falls, NY) and regular columnist and member of the Vision & Sensors’ editorial advisory board, Ned Lecky addresses several questions on how to achieve successful integration with machine vision applications. He also discusses best practices and the criteria involved when determining if an outside integrator is right for a company’s application.
By going back to the basics, we were able to rapidly create independent camera interface programs based on the camera vendors’ own code-a safe and risk-averse approach that is almost certain to speed deployment.
I am seeing more and more quality control and machine vision applications in Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS), where automated inspection of vehicles and their contents is performed for border control, port security and rail inspection applications.
