New Technologies for Automobile Manufacturing

Nowadays modern image processing systems are used in all aspects of quality control and process control. These control and inspection systems have come to be used not just by car makers, but also by their suppliers and automotive workshops. Digital cameras are used for example directly on the suppliers' lines to inspect O rings for use in ABS systems. And in workshops, systems for optical axis measurement are a major labor saver.

Basler cameras are extraordinarily well-suited for applications found in the automotive industry. Among their features:
  • High image quality
  • High speeds
  • High reliability
  • Small design
  • Shock resistance
