Transcript of Machine Vision

By group Kick Ass Machine Vision What is Machine Vision? Machine Vision in Everyday Life Here is a little video of Machine Vision in action! Machine vision, also known as industrial vision or vision systems takes information from imaging software such as cameras and converts it from a series of 0's and 1's so that we can read the data gathered. Machine vision is used to read products (size, colour, etc,) and can be used to measure, sort (ex: where the product is supposed to go), read identification numbers and do an inspection through automated systems. Machine vision is also useful for accomplishing time consuming tasks such as bar code readings, sorting etc. It can accomplish this at a higher speed through computerized programs to ensure less wasted product, keep a good production time and to keep quality control throughout the production. Also it is very simple to tweak and adjust the system's settings to produce a product efficiently and to keep the quality of the product constant. The History of Machine Vision Machine Vision was first developed in the 1950’s, Two Dimensional imaging for statistical pattern recognition. In the 1960’s Larry Robert begins studying 3D machine vision which lead to more research into computer vision of blocks and simple objects. In the 1970’s David Marr creates a different approach to machine vision by way of 2D sketch then progresses to 3D. In the 1980’s Machine Vision takes on within the world leading to Optical character recognition and eventually smart cameras. In the 1990’s Machine Vision becomes more abundant and leads to its own industry. LED lights for machine vision are manufactured and more advanced sensors, this leads to the drop in pricing for machine vision. In today’s world machine vision is used by thousands of people and is used by almost any industry. It has proved to be most successful in the controlled environment of the factory floor by offering advantages over human vision. Some way’s it helps is by terms of cost, speed, precision and physical demand. Here is a list of some examples:
* Measure dimensions within thousandths of an inch
* Identify or recognize an object
* Verify the product meets company standards
* Identify flaws that the human eye may miss
* Fast and accurate
* Can work in environments not safe for humans Machine vision is used in almost every manufacturing industry today. The future of machine vision is growing. Cameras used in the future of machine vision will use a higher pixel level and have better colour resolution. This will help better monitor problems that may occur in the process of making products and maintaining good production. Efficiency within the industry will be greater which will result in higher customer satisfaction. Machine Vision is being used more and more in industry because it is affordable and not big in size. Robotic eyes are easy to use and repairs are low in cost. Cameras and robotic eyes are very efficient and do not need to be repaired often which is what makes them such a successful piece of equipment in many growing industries today.
