Automation and data exchange are no longer optional industrial innovations. If an industrial organization wants to thrive, they need to reconsider their old Industry 3.0 habits.
It was around the 1990s that Machine Vision (MV) started to become a practical reality in the industry, especially within manufacturing environments. The advancements in other indirect technologies, from enhanced lighting, intelligent imaging systems, sensing, control, and especially computing, have helped MV systems transform into a practical reality.
Today, MV has evolved so much that it is considered the eye of industrial automation. Its imaging-based automated decision-making capabilities can benefit any industry, especially manufacturing with automatic visual inspection and quality control processes. But MV can also help in other environments such as strengthening surveillance and security, guiding collaborative robots, or even driving vehicles.
