Artificial vision is a fascinating and complex whole of processes that aim to create an approximate model of the real world departing from bidimensional images. Seeing is not only the acquisition of a bidimensional image of an area, but above all the interpretation of the content of that area: image processing.
Vision systems are formed by:
OBJECT TO EXAMINE
SYSTEM OF ACQUISITION AND ELABORATION
OF THE IMAGE
INTERFACES WITH THE EXTERNAL ENVIRONMENT
An artificial vision system is constituted by the integration of optical, electronical and mechanical components that allow to acquire, to record and to process images. The result of the elaboration is the recognition of specific patterns of the image for various finalities like control, classification, selection.
The parts to be inspected are positioned through moving systems in front of the cameras and lighted in appropriate ways, in order to underline as much as possible the defects to be detected.
The optical system forms an image on the sensor of the camera that produces an electric signal in output (this signal will be digitalized and stored).
The image, captured and made understandable, can then be processed with a software that includes special algorithms and analyses to detect the characteristics of the image and to amplify some aspects (contours, edges, shapes, structures).
Based on the elaboration results, the system takes decisions regarding the object destination, for instance to sort the pieces among the “good” or “scrape” ones, and it provides the relevant information to production processes.
UTPVision designs, manufactures and sells automatic image processing equipments for the quality control of different types of components and large production series.
UTPVision combines real time control systems with image processing systems guaranteeing both high performance and excellent stability during the whole process of control.
The continuous research and development activities together with the most recent digital technologies allow both versatility and the achievement of the highest standards required by the current market.
UTPVision intends to make available for the customers these specific experiences so that the project will be integrated with every single requirement.
