The industrial use of Machine Vision
So, how and where can this technology be a useful tool? Machine Vision applications are actually already a vital part of several industrial contexts. A striking example is the advanced surveillance systems that has been implemented to guarantee the safety of citizens in the biggest cities of the world. These surveillance cameras with Machine Vision are able to detect abnormal behaviors in public spaces and instantly report on the matter, without the need of active human involvement.
Medical applications and beyond
Other industrial and medical applications that use this technology are electronic component analysis, signature identification, optical character recognition, handwriting recognition, object recognition, pattern recognition, materials inspections, currency inspection, medical image analysis and drones.
In many cases the Machine Vision solution is far more sensitive than the human eye and therefore superior in comparison. Some of the these applications for example supports infrared (IR), ultraviolet (UV) and X-ray wavelengths.
Conclusion? The revolution will definitely be televised.
