UNDERSTANDING COLOUR MACHINE VISION
By Matrox Imaging
Digital cameras with colour image sensors are now commonplace. The same is true for the computing power and device interfaces necessary to handle the additional data from colour images. What’s more, as users become familiar and comfortable with machine vision technology, they seek to tackle more difficult or previously unsolvable applications. These circumstances combine to make colour machine vision an area of mounting interest. Colour machine vision poses unique challenges but it also brings some unique capabilities for manufacturing control and inspection.
