Application case studies

It’s very difficult for someone with little machine vision experience to figure out how to approach a new application. Everyone tells you that lighting is key, which of course it is, but unless you have some grasp of the basic image analysis tools available it’s not obvious what you should be trying to achieve with the lighting.

That’s why I was impressed by the
machine vision application examples appended to the “Vision Systems Design” article by the Soliton guys. If you scroll to the end you’ll find five examples of real vision applications, with a discussion of the logic used in setting up the inspection. This is what’s missing from so many vision papers and articles, yet it’s exactly what engineers need in order to figure out to approach their particular job.

Great work
Soliton, keep it up!
