What is a vision system?

A vision system encompasses much more than "just" a camera. This video provides a short introduction to the individual components.

When it comes to industrial image processing, there are many tasks, from quality controls to sorting foods, that require more than just one single camera. Responsibilities like these require a more comprehensive image processing system, known as a vision system. The camera is the centerpiece of the vision system, which is not to say that the other components in the system are not important. Using a yummy cookie as our sample product, we'll explain in more detail just how a vision system works.

Enjoy a surprisingly delicious lesson. Our expert Thies Moeller details the most important components of this kind of system and explains how it is structured and what advantages it offers.
