Learn more about machine vision! In our knowledge base we are explaining key technical terms about image processing. We give you an overview to topics like 3D machine vision or the established standards like CameraLink, GigE Vision or GenICam.
Today 3D machine vision is most commonly used for the precise three-
dimensional inspection and measurement of complex 3D free formed surfaces, but
new fields of applications are constantly being explored.
Camera manufacturers include a wide range of functions in their
products to meet the increasing demands of the industrial market.
Some of the key camera characteristics and common features are
discussed in this section.
Interfacing cameras to computers for image processing has changed
significantly in the last few years. In recent years the industry put a lot of
effort into standardisation and several standards such as CameraLink,
DCAM/IIDC and GigE Vision emerged. In addition GenICam has been approved,
offering genuine ‘plug and play’ functionality for industrial vision cameras.
