Future vision: event imaging and multi-shot lighting

Share this on social media:

This webcast, now on-demand, covers innovations in camera, lighting, and lens technology. An event-based camera will be presented, which takes a different imaging approach to traditional frame-based sensors, in that the sensor only activates if it detects a change in the scene. There will also be presentations on the advantages of multi-shot illumination, and how Modulation Transfer Functions of lenses can help vision system designers find optics with the best cost-to-performance ratio.

Many machine vision applications such as OCR/barcode reading on bottles and containers, or defect detection inside threaded bores require inspecting features randomly located both on the part outer or inner sides, and on the top and bottom surfaces. This paper describes the advantages of using special optics designed for 360° inspection (either using a pericentric design or various lens/mirror combinations) versus multi-camera systems or line-scan imaging.

Ruggedised lenses address some of the challenges faced in environments with high levels of vibration, shock, and moisture. Edmund Optics explores the features and advantages of different types of ruggedisation in imaging lenses.

This white paper from Edmund Optics examines a hybrid approach to lens design for when a custom lens optimised for a specific magnification, working distance and sensor is not feasible. Lenses can be designed such that the spacing between elements or groups of elements can be adjusted; fine-tuning an existing design in this way can produce excellent results in less time and at a lower cost than a full custom design.
