Embedded Vision – A New Concept with New Applications
The trend in electronic components is toward smaller and cheaper. Manufacturers of technical products and systems have found that it is both easier and more lucrative to use small computational units for special tasks, and simply build them into the devices. The resulting devices are not just smaller and cheaper: they also come with a variety of new functions. This kind of computational module is typically referred to as "embedded." When camera technology is added into the mix, then the field is known as embedded vision. In short, the device can see and process images. This kind of vision system is more compact and affordable than a classic Machine Vision system, as current industrial image processing systems are known. At the same time, embedded vision can meet their high standards for image quality and specifications.
Our White Paper Embedded Vision – A New Concept with New Applications is intended to familiarize you with the various technical implementations of embedded vision systems as used in a variety of technical products.
