Machine vision has moved from the research laboratory to the factoryfloor in the past five years. A new machine vision industry has emerged which has a several hundred million dollar per year market and tens of thousands of potential applications. Not only is 100% inspection becoming a reality but new concepts such as in-place inspection rather than post-process inspection are being used to improve product quality. Much of the reason for this phenomenal growth is due to the use of robust algorithms and innovative architectures in machine vision systems.
