Machine vision and its industrial applications

Machine vision is a discipline that has many applications in the industry through specially designed systems.

The ability to acquire, process and analyze images of the environment to produce useful information is what defines machine vision as a discipline.

However, it is the systems created with the purpose of solving specific situations that transform this concept into an effective technology, especially in the automation of industrial processes.

Types of machine vision systems

Depending on the technology used to capture, process, analyze and execute an action, machine vision systems can be classified into four types:

  • Vision sensors: offer more precision than photoelectric sensors and failure results.
  • Smart Cameras:provides better resolution, computing power that allows for embedding in small spaces, although they require a processor, input and output mechanisms.
  • Integrated vision systems: These are integrated within the automation elements, allowing the connection of multiple remote viewing heads in a single element of the process.
  • Advanced vision systems: they have more hardware, software and processes, making them extremely complex applications to integrate into machines or original equipments.
