via PRNewswire

PALO ALTO, Calif., Nov. 14 /PRNewswire/ -- Manufacturers of machine vision systems are finding it extremely challenging to keep pace with developments in the semiconductor industry. Miniaturization of components is creating the needfor higher throughput vision systems that afford superior accuracy levels.

High-performance image sensors in cameras, suitable illumination wavelengths, high processing power and efficient processing software are going to be crucial if machine vision systems are to keep up with the rising automation standards.

"Commensurate advancements in lighting and illumination, lasers, lighting, processors, sensors and optics have to complement machine vision systems," reiterates Frost & Sullivan Research Analyst Vishnu Sivadevan. "Developers face the challenge of reducing set-up time and also incorporating greater enhanced functionality, scalability and upgradeability."

It is important to pay special attention to issues surrounding the expenditure and time on set-up time and installation. User-friendly features, robust integration capabilities and reduction of operator training time can drive investments in machine vision systems.

"End-users are demanding quick return on investment and are attempting to make a futuristic investment in machine vision systems, choosing judiciously from a range of products, which differ in cost and functionality," explains Sivadevan.
