As concepts like lean manufacturing, machine learning, mobility, and workflow automation gain traction across several industries, the demand for vision-embedded technologies such as the machine vision unfolds a new chapter to refine productivity. Machine vision components, systems, and applications are slowly replacing its traditional counter parts— sensing and sensor tracking systems and photoeye to fit within the budget plans and cost management needs of the manufacturers. Today’s vision-enabled solutions are not only shrinking in size, they are increasingly being integrated with robots, and enhanced with high image resolution capabilities, lighting and lenses as well as better sense of payloads, increased speed, interface, and accuracy to seamlessly carryout inspection, packaging, and quality assessment.
