Understanding Machine Vision Illumination
Understanding Machine Vision Illumination
Illuminating a product to attain the best contrast available is important in machine vision applications: the higher the contrast, the greater the difference between the background and the features to be inspected. Using the correct wavelength of light, proper lighting configurations and appropriate filters can increase contrast and result in more efficient image processing and faster inspection speeds.

Radiant Vision Systems, Test & Measurement - AR/VR Lens: Measure Displays in Headset AR/VR Lens: Measure Displays in Headset

Radiant Vision Systems, Test & Measurement
Displays viewed near to the eye, such as those in AR/VR devices, create immersive virtual experiences. However, as display images are magnified to fill a user’s field of view, display defects are also magnified. Issues with uniformity of brightness and color, dead pixels, line defects, cloudiness, and image position become more evident to the user...

Improving Automation with 3D Vision
Improving Automation with 3D Vision
Getting part type, location, and orientation correct is critical to inspection, handling, and other automated tasks. The additional data in a 3D image makes it possible to execute challenging tasks, such as optical character recognition of the lettering on tires. What’s more, 3D vision makes it easier to distinguish between robots or other machines and people.

Terahertz 3D Spectroscopy Boosts Imaging Applications
Terahertz 3D Spectroscopy Boosts Imaging Applications
Terahertz imaging is a promising technique for noncontact, non-invasive, nonionizing 3D spectroscopy. Terahertz rays, located between microwave and IR on the electromagnetic spectrum from approximately 0.06 THz (60 GHz) to 10 THz, are capable of penetrating nonconducting materials and revealing information from within samples. Measurements use the time-domain profile information from a terahertz pulse to produce the 3D images.

Understanding Camera Resolution
Understanding Camera Resolution
Tue, Sep 18, 2018 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM EDT
In this webinar, you will learn how sensors and lighting affect camera resolution, and how different setups can affect the resulting image. You will learn a simple formula that will help you calculate the camera resolution you need for your application — and how to use the results of your calculation to achieve the best imaging results under a variety of real-world conditions. This webinar is sponsored by Midwest Optical Systems Inc.
