What is Machine Vision
Image Processing , Technology & Science / December 20, 2017

Vision plays a fundamental role for living beings by allowing them to interact with the environment in an effective and efficient way. Where human vision is best for qualitative interpretation of a complex, unstructured scene, machine vision excels at quantitative measurement of a structured scene because of its speed, accuracy, and repeatability. For example, on a production line, a machine vision system can inspect hundreds, or even thousands, of parts per minute. A machine vision system built around the right camera resolution and optics can easily inspect object details too small to be seen by the human eye. What is Machine Vision? Machine vision (also called “industrial vision” or “vision systems”) is the use of digital sensors (wrapped in cameras with specialized optics) that are connected to processing hardware and software algorithms to visually inspect pretty much anything. Machine vision is a true multi-disciplinary field, encompassing computer science, optics, mechanical engineering, and industrial automation. While historically the tools of machine vision were focused on manufacturing, that’s quickly changing, spreading into medical applications, research, and even movie making. Machine vision is the technology to replace or complement manual inspections and measurements with digital cameras and image processing. The technology is used…
