Computer Vision

Machine vision, a part of computer vision, involves the use of technology to allow a computer to interpret and understand the visual data. including images and video.


Steps to Machine Vision

  1. Image Acquisition: Obtain the necessary images or video frames using cameras, sensors, or any other image-capturing devices.
  2. Image Pre-processing
  3. Feature Extraction: Identify relevant features within the images, such as edges, corners, textures, or other distinctive patterns. This process helps in capturing essential information that will be utilized in later stages of analysis.
  4. Decision Making: Utilize machine vision algorithms to interpret and make decisions based on the extracted features. This could involve Image Classification, object detection, or any other form of analysis based on the task at hand.
  5. Integration and Action: Depending on the application, the results of the machine vision analysis may trigger specific actions, such as quality control decisions in manufacturing, robotics guidance, or providing feedback for further processes.
