How Machine Vision Can Be Used Beyond the Visible Light Spectrum
Machine vision uses cameras to obtain an image to inspect for visible characteristics. The camera then communicates with a computer through machine vision software to process the data, analyze results, record findings, and make decisions based on the information. The result is increased automation, consistency and efficiency. So how can machine vision be used beyond the visible light spectrum? Through infrared or thermal vision, which is capable of detecting infrared radiation through infrared or thermal imaging.
