In some instances, optical inspection can refer to human visual inspection of an object, but these days it more likely refers to Automated Optical Inspection (AOI) conducted by a machine vision system or specialized AOI system.
USB 3.0 technology, which represents the second significant revision of the Universal Serial Bus standard for computer connectivity, is 10 times faster than the USB 2.0 iteration.
The component choices available in the architecture and configuration of machine vision inspection solutions are more numerous than ever.
Counting objects in an image seems like an easy task, which can be automated through machine vision and image analysis, but it becomes difficult when objects touch, move randomly, or are hard to distinguish from their background.
Previously considered bulky, expensive and complex to interpret, machine vision technology has undergone continuous improvements to become an integral part of quality control for industrial or manufacturing production lines.
Short wave infrared (SWIR) machine vision imaging is a key tool in manufacturing and industrial processes to measure, monitor, control or otherwise manage the reliable and quality-conforming production of goods that do not respond well to standard range machine vision cameras.
Machine vision as a subset of computer science has been around for more than 20 years.
High-resolution and high-speed digital cameras are taking on a critical role in military and aerospace applications as the industry strives to achieve real-time image acquisition requirements while meeting an ever increasing demand for more “pixels on target.”
Machine vision is a familiar technology in manufacturing and industry, and is used in an ever-growing range of tasks from simple code reading and assembly verification to robotic guidance and 3-D profiling.
