Deep Learning Enables Real-Time Imaging Around Corners

Researchers used deep learning to create a new laser-based system that can image around corners in real time. The systems might one day let self-driving cars "look" around parked cars or busy intersections.

What is Machine Vision?

Machine vision is used in a variety of industrial processes, such as material inspection, object recognition, pattern recognition, electronic component analysis, along with the recognition of signatures, optical characters, and currency.

Vision in Challenging Lighting Environments

Digital image sensors work based on the Photoelectric effect. When the image sensor is exposed to light (photons), an equivalent charge is produced by the image sensor. It is then converted to image data.

The Evolution of Robotic Sight and Machine Vision Systems

Robotic sight and machine vision systems can help our automata pick up on visual cues that we humans would probably miss or ignore, and they can deliver considerable value to companies that adopt them. Here's a look at where the technology has been and where it's headed.

Choosing the Best Machine Vision Technique for Robot Guidance

There are numerous approaches to robot guidance using machine vision techniques, such as stereo vision and photogrammetry, time of flight, structured light, light coding, and laser triangulation.

What is Structured Light Imaging?

Structured Light imaging is commonly used for machine vision because it can yield high resolution results. Some of the methods can be used effectively in moderate and high-speed applications.

BitFlow Predicts Vision-Guided Robotics to Become Major Disruptive Force in Global Manufacturing

As the plant floor has become more digitally connected, the relationship between robots and machine vision has merged into a single, seamless platform, setting the stage for a new generation of more responsive vision-driven robotic systems.

CCD vs. CMOS

CCD (charge coupled device) and CMOS (complementary metal oxide semiconductor) image sensors are two different technologies for capturing images digitally. Each has unique strengths and weaknesses giving advantages in different applications.
