How the computer vision works

The basic steps are the segmentation and analysis, which are essentially software algorithms and functions that run on the processor.

Segmentation. It comes to deciding what parts of the image require interpretation or not. It is often possible and necessary to refine the segmentation. For example, if the application needs to find scratches or cracks in the glass, the first phase of segmentation often find elements that are themselves cracks or scratches in addition to dirt and dust. Often the result is refined to remove from the image dirt and dust and leave only the elements to be analyzed.

Analysis. Once the image has been successfully segmented, the processor can make a series of tests and measurements in the objects of interest in the scene. There are many algorithms that help us to achieve the desired results. Among them, it is interesting to look at their features:

These algorithms, used strategically, allow us to decide whether a piece has been manufactured correctly or not, to guide a robot towards a specific object or adjust production machinery automatically.
