Computational imaging technology has found its way into industrial automated inspection, where the creative use of illumination components has emerged as an enabling technology providing valuable imaging capabilities.
With three new models incorporating the latest 2nd Generation Sony IMX sensors the camera manufacturer Allied Vision expands its robust high-resolution camera family Prosilica GT for demanding applications.
Knowing a material’s breaking point is crucial during its development; and being able to observe the instantaneous moment of failure allows for a greater understanding of the process. That, in turn, can help develop stronger and safer materials.
JAI has introduced a new 3-CMOS prism color line scan camera in its Sweep+ Series camera family. The new SW-4000T-MCL features three custom CMOS line sensors with 4K (4096 pixels) resolution, mounted on a high-grade optical prism assembly that precisely splits the incoming light into red, green, and blue wavebands.
Human visual perception is the ultimate standard of quality for any lighting or display product that’s intended to be viewed by humans. From flat screen TVs to smart phones, light bulbs to traffic signals, stadium jumbotrons to VR goggles, the GPS in your car to the cockpit instruments of a jet plane, what human users perceive—and any defects they notice—is the defining factor in device quality.
Machine vision has thrived on the manufacturing floor, and is bringing new levels of insight to medical, security, and transportation applications, thanks in part by adopting technologies perfected for other markets.
