A Taste of the Orient

A Taste of the Orient

Last month I had the opportunity to attend the Vision China Exhibition in Shanghai. In addition to sampling wonderful new flavors and experiences, the trip also provided one location where manufacturers from around the world could showcase their latest imaging products.

Color Wonders

Color Wonders

The camera in your system is the gateway to the color wonders of the world. A camera delivering accurate color is no small feat, much less doing so in a reliable and repeatable manner. Cameras from various manufacturers often rely on comparable sensors but this is where the similarities end. Unless purposely designed, cameras will deliver varying color quality even when using the same image sensors. Color quality may even vary between units of the same camera model.

Designing a complex machine vision system can be a grueling task. Defining the system objectives, designing an architecture, estimating performance requirements, working out bottlenecks, identifying components and solving interface issues are just a few of the steps required before even starting to tackle system integration.

We just came back from Chicago where the company attended Automate 2013. Automate is North America’s leading trade show when it comes to machine vision for industrial applications. Manufacturers introduce their newest products to entice visitors with the most exciting technologies.

The Buzz About USB 3.0

The Buzz About USB 3.0

USB 3.0 is an evolution of USB 2.0, one of the most popular data interfaces available today. One of USB 3.0’s most compelling features for machine vision systems is its high bandwidth providing a transfer speed of approximately 5 Gb/s, which is ten times faster than USB 2.0 and five times faster than the widely deployed GigE interface.
