Uses of Machine Vision

Machine vision applications are divided into three main categories:

Inspections carried out by humans, often can not meet the requirements of modern industry with regard to production rate, product quality and production costs. Humans get tired, make mistakes and the criteria for inspections are inevitably subjective. In some cases, it is not humanly possible to accomplish the task of inspection due to environmental conditions. The cameras and systems that comprise a machine vision system, by contrast, carry out measurements with accuracy and at a steady rate established by the production process itself. These advantages have led to a growing acceptance of machine vision by the industry across the world.

Applications of this technology in facilities around the world include:

Machine Vision refers to the automatic interpretation of images of real scenes in order to control or monitor machinery or industrial processes. Images may be visible light, infrared or X-rays and even information derived from ultrasound.
