What Is Machine Vision In 60 Seconds

2 July 2021

One of the simplest ways to understand a machine vision system is to consider it the “eyes” of a machine. The system uses digital input that’s captured by a camera to determine action. Businesses use machine vision systems in a variety of ways to improve quality, efficiency and operations.

How do machine vision systems work?

Some manufacturing facilities have used machine vision systems since the 1950s, but it was in the 1980s-1990s when things really started to expand. Regardless of an industrial or non-industrial application, a combination of software and hardware work together to make machine vision systems possible.

Let’s look at how these components work together when machine vision is used to inspect a product in a manufacturing operation, a very common example of a machine vision system in practice.

The process begins when a sensor detects the presence of a product. The sensor then triggers a light source to illuminate the area and a camera to capture an image of the product or a component of the product. The frame-grabber (a digitising device) translates the camera’s image into digital output. The digital file is saved on a computer so it can be analysed by the system software. The software compares the file against a set of predetermined criteria to identify defects. If a defect is identified, the product will fail inspection.
