Coming Attractions

One of the newest trends in machine vision systems is the implementation of so-called "smart cameras." A smart camera combines the usual image sensor with a built-in processor, which allows inspections to be run directly on the camera, thereby eliminating a step in the process. Instead of simply capturing images, like a conventional camera, a smart camera can analyze those images, interpret the data, and deliver the results. Smart cameras are also designed to perform many advanced functions normal cameras can't such as edge detection, geometric pattern matching, optical character recognition, and 2-D barcode reading.
