Here is an example of what computer vision systems can do. In this example, Radiant Vision Systems® offers a glimpse into a vision system and how it works. In the video, Radiant Vision Systems® imaging photometers and colorimeters are applied at each stage of a production of display devices and detects light, color, and surface defects .
If you are interested in computer vision-guided robotics there is a nice talk on the topic. David Dechow, Staff Engineer for Intelligent Robotics/Machine Vision, FANUC America Corporation provides guidance on where vision-guided robotics makes sense in different settings. It discusses the need for smart design of robot work cells and how to incorporate vision.
One of the hottest topics today is around machine learning – you could be excused if you didn’t know that it actually has been around for a long time in a different context and survived the “AI winter”. One area of machine learning focuses on ‘smart’ image recognition and its use in medical imaging. The following article provides a perspective on how medical imaging is being changed by machine learning.
