Artificial Vision – Advanced Technologies
The main purpose of machine vision is to reproduce human sight.
To see means not only the acquisition of an image of an area, but also the interpretation of the content of that image. A machine vision system is a device that can capture images and make calculations in order to derive information from said images.
A vision system is composed of:
- An image acquisition source, usually a camera
- An appropriate lens
- A lighting device
- A computer with appropriate image capture cards
- Image processing and storage software
- A display monitor
