Technology is the road to future success for manufacturers. With new technologies like machine vision being implemented on a daily basis, the future is here. Machine vision can do more than help with automation. It can also use “deep learning” to enhance its abilities.
What Is Machine Vision?
Machine vision is the technology and methods used to provide imaging-based automatic inspection and analysis for such applications as automatic inspection, process control, and robot guidance. Images and data are captured, defects are discovered, and corrections to products can be made.
What Is Deep Learning?
With deep learning, machine vision systems learn from the data it processes. It takes the information that has been pre-tagged by manufacturers and then uses specially designed neural networks that are software based to define the parameters needed to do specific jobs. Basically, images are scanned, processed, and deemed either bad or good. The more the system sees, the more it learns to decipher the good from the bad on its own.
Blending Two Powerful Systems
While basic machine vision systems may be just fine for many factories, there are many that can benefit from combining machine vision with deep learning. Deep learning is a good choice where things out of the norm, like surface damage, need to be detected. The combination of the two can be phenomenal by decreasing waste and increasing revenue.
Technology Of the Future
Deep learning is new to machine vision and has the possibility of bringing a whole new revolution to the field of machine vision and factory automation. The areas that can be enhanced by deep learning is only now being completely explored.

The In-Sight ViDi Read tool deciphers badly deformed, skewed, and poorly etched codes using optical character recognition (OCR). It works right out of the box, dramatically reducing development time, thanks to the deep learning pretrained font library. Simply define the region of interest and set the character size. In situations where new characters are introduced, … Continue Reading
We all know how crucial machine vision inspections are to every type of manufacturing business in our worldwide market. Competition is too high to allow defective parts and products to hit the shelves to consumers. Not to mention the legality of any product that causes harm due to a defect. Today’s advanced technology through AI’s … Continue Reading
Deep learning is currently being used in the automotive industry for a number of inspection applications. Most manufacturers have large databases of past material that can easily be used by deep learning algorithms for initial learning. Once the algorithm has been learned, it can be maintained and adjusted over time, just like any other piece … Continue Reading
Deep learning solutions help manufacturers push the limits of what’s possible with machine vision. Deep learning technology gives manufacturing equipment the ability to recognize images and perceive environments in new ways. deep learning-based vision algorithms can now solve factory floor applications that once took months to develop. These include applications that are too complicated to … Continue Reading
Machine Vision and Deep Learning A Machine Vision Revolution. Machine vision has become widely accepted by multiple industries as the most efficient method of detecting flaws, errors, and irregularities in manufactured goods. Certain types of inspection have been, until recently, impossible for automated systems due to the complexity and nuance required to distinguish between cosmetic … Continue Reading
Increase Food Inspection and Production Levels with Advanced Machine Vision AI’s higher intelligence is like having Superman join your quality inspection team. Imagine having the capability to scan 1,000 parts per minute! Machine vision equipped with deep learning can accomplish this task. That breaks down to inspecting one part in approximately six milliseconds. With machine … Continue Reading
Artificial intelligence (or AI) has seen a recent surge in use across a wide variety of industries. One type of AI currently being used in image processing is called Deep Learning.
