Characterizing the image sensor/deciding on the image sensor is an important first step in camera selection for a machine vision application, but it is not a simple task. There are some courses such as the one highlighted below that can offer excellent training and support. You can also contact Adimec for information as we have…
In February 2011, we provided an analysis on the use of CCD versus CMOS image sensors in machine vision.
Adimec as part of the MEDEA+ project TritonZ, was awarded with the 2011 Innovation Award which was granted during the European Nanoelectronics Forum on 15 November, 2011 in Dublin.
Shorter Integration Times to Increase Throughput and Reduce Costs in FPD inspection, SPI, and others
OEMs of precise inspection systems such as those used in FPD and semiconductor manufacturing, are continuously working to increase throughput and reduce costs.
At the Vision Trade Fair 2011 held in Stuttgart November 8th to 10th Ray Berst from Components Express discusses high-flex, long-distance cable and connector offerings that support the latest developments in interface standards and emerging standards. Those discussed are Camera Link HS, USB 3.0, and CoaXPress.
In August, we started a list of blogs that are a helpful resource on machine vision and industrial camera topics. We received some tips from our readers on additional great blogs.
The important starting point for machine vision applications is the details in the image. A higher quality starting image requires less software workarounds, which enables you to focus on your core technology. The question is then, are you getting the details you need from your image? Would a better image be beneficial?
The latest machine vision camera technology can allow for improvements in intelligent traffic system (ITS) performance to minimize detection time in case of accidents, increase the detection rates in cases of violations, and minimize overall costs from police time and traffic jams. With decreasing budgets, these systems also need to maintain reasonable costs and prove…
Choosing the correct industrial camera for your system from the beginning can eliminate costly redesigns or upgrades in the future. The question is, how do you determine the best camera? Best is always subject to your needs.
For intelligent traffic systems, VGA resolution CCD-based cameras have traditionally been the accepted technology, but with the quality of CMOS image sensors continuously improving, CMOS-based cameras are now a viable option for demanding license plate recognition applications. The latest system requirements are for higher resolution (HDTV) and frame rates of 30 to 60 frames per…
