Embedded Vision vs. Machine Vision
Machine vision and embedded vision systems both fulfill important roles in industry, especially in process control and automation. The difference between the two lies primarily in image processing capabilities and size: embedded vision systems deliver compact efficiency, and conventional machine vision systems provide high-performance and versatility. But the precise boundary between the two can be hard to pin down. This article compares the two...  Continue Reading..
Understanding White Balance For Allied Vision GigE Cameras
The human visual system has the ability to map “white” colors to the sensation of white, even though an object has different radiance when it is illuminated with different light sources. When an image is captured by a digital camera, the sensor response at each pixel depends on the illumination. That is, each pixel value recorded by the sensor is related to the color temperature1 of the light source. This application note further...  Continue Reading..
Understanding The Pixel-Based Polarizer
The Mako G-508B POL polarizer camera is equipped with the new Sony Polarsens™ 5.0 Megapixel IMX250MZR CMOS sensor that incorporates the latest four-directional polarization filter technology. This application note discusses this polarization filter technology and how it is used to visualize polarization defects, areas of stress, and to enable polarized light imaging without optical filters.  Continue Reading..
