 The Concept Behind Machine Vision


Machine vision is an important part of an automation project. It provides the “seeing” capability and the “analytical / decision making” capability to the hardware system. With these capabilities, it provides the intelligence to the system.

Generally a machine vision consists of 3 important areas, namely:
a.  Image acquisition
An enhanced image of the object/objects is being captured with a proper combination design construction of camera, illuminators and optic.
  • Camera
  • Illuminators
  • Optic design
b. 
Computing hardware architecture
Fast, accurate and reliable computing power is being selected and designed.
  • Computer architecture and performance
c. 
Image processing
Software algorithms to analyze the images provided intelligently.



Empower your system with sight


Using the Hardware Abstraction Layer software from ViTrox and the industrial cameras provided, students could easily make their software see the world.

The images captured could be analyzed for different purposes like detecting orientation of object, detecting obstacles, facial recognition, defective part identification, and many more. It is up to the students' imagination and creativity to make use of this new ability.

The Hardware Abstraction Layer can integrate with a number of popular industrial cameras in the market, and not restricted to those provided for the competition. It helps to make testing different cameras during prove of concept easy.
