Vision blogger from down under

Here’s an interesting, if Cognex oriented, blog about machine vision. I particularly liked the picture of the first Cognex product, the 1982 DataMan. It’s a reminder that, while we’ve come a long way, the journey has been difficult and progress has perhaps been slower than was expected back then.

The blog comes courtesy of “
Smart Sensors” who are based in Australia. Also on their web site is a funky little Cognex Checker video. It’s a nice reminder that multiple, easy to configure sensors can be a ‘smarter’ solution than a more sophisticated vision system.
