Mastering Machine Vision
Mastering Machine Vision
Machine vision systems provide an automated and repeatable way of performing the quality control and verification tasks needed to save time, cut costs, increase throughput and automatically document quality. Machine vision systems were once considered a costly addition, but there are now methods to automate manufacturing more affordably so even the smallest of companies can acquire the right vision solutions.

Thermal Imaging Spurs New Applications
Thermal Imaging Spurs New Applications
Long-wave infrared (LWIR) imaging, also known as thermal imaging, has played a critical role in the defense and security market for decades because of its ability to detect warm (or live) objects independent of ambient lighting. Recently, advances in detector fabrication and lower costs have made LWIR imaging more accessible for consumer and industrial markets.

Holographic Waveguide HUD Has Larger Eye Box for Enhanced Display
Holographic Waveguide HUD Has Larger Eye Box for Enhanced Display
Researchers demonstrated a functional prototype head-up display (HUD) that uses optical holographic elements to achieve an eye box substantially larger than what is available without the holographic component. Current head-up displays have a small eye box, which can cause the displayed information to partially or wholly disappear from view if users shift their gaze.

Image-Based Barcode Reading Fulfills its Promise
Image-Based Barcode Reading Fulfills its Promise
Traditionally, 1D barcodes have been read by laser scanners that project a beam across the barcode and use reflected light to generate an electrical signal for decoding. Although these scanners are mature and effective, a number of inherent disadvantages have motivated a switch to image-based readers using 2D sensors.

Fundamentals of Helium Leak Detection
Fundamentals of Helium Leak Detection
Tue, Apr 17, 2018 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM EDT
From LEDs to medical devices to microelectronics to fiber optics — everything leaks! This 40-minute webinar, presented by Agilent Technologies, will describe the challenges of locating and measuring leaks, the importance of leak rate specification and various methods of leak detection. You will learn the different methods of locating leaks and determining leak rate, and which method to employ for your product or system.

Selecting the Best Sensor for Your Machine Vision System
Selecting the Best Sensor for Your Machine Vision System
Tue, Apr 24, 2018 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM EDT
You will learn how to "do the math" in order to make sure your sensor has the resolution you need to find defects of a certain size; what to look for in sensor quality; what a sensor can do for you (and, just as importantly, what it cannot do). The webinar will also discuss the importance of other components, including the lens, camera and lighting.
