Machine Vision Systems and LED Lighting Controllers
Presenter: John Merva, Vice President, Gardasoft

Machine Vision Systems and LED Lighting Controllers

Machine vision systems measure light observed in the image. When light levels change, results change unexpectedly. Learn how power supply drift and ambient temperature change can adversely affect results and how current drive LED lighting controllers can eliminate unwanted light level changes. LED controllers can also offer the flexibility of pulsing, pulse sequencing and facilitate the acquisition of multi-spectral and multi-light field images in a single camera station. Gardasoft LED controllers enable machine vision system communications via global standards to allow close integration and easy product change over. These communications allow connected factory monitoring of light health and enable preventive maintenance to ensure uniform results over the life of the system. Features of Gardasoft liquid lens controllers and trigger timing controllers will also be explained.

Better Machine Vision Solutions through Computational Imaging
Presenter: Marc Landman, Vice President, CCS America

Better Machine Vision Solutions through Computational Imaging

Computational Imaging (CI) refers to digital image capture and processing techniques that combine computation and optical encoding. Fundamentally, CI relies on data extracted and computed from a series of input images captured under different lighting or optical conditions. Advances in lighting technology, high-speed CMOS cameras and high-performance computing platforms are making many CI techniques viable for machine vision.

In this presentation, you will learn the basic concepts of computational imaging and the advantages it offers to designers of modern machine vision systems. In many applications, CI outperforms conventional imaging, and results in more reliable vision solutions with less development time and reduced cost.

We will discuss six practical examples of CI solutions for machine vision applications and show how better or previously impossible images can be created with ease. These techniques include photometric stereo (also known as shape from shading), ultra-resolution color, high dynamic range (HDR), extended depth of field (EDOF), bright field/dark field, and multispectral imaging. With the right computational imaging products, system designers can take advantage of simplified hardware, timing, image acquisition and processing to produce superior machine vision solutions.

Imaging Trends to Watch-Out for in 2019 and Beyond
Presenter: Manuel Romero, Product Line Manager - Area Scan products, Teledyne DALSA

Imaging Trends to Watch-Out for in 2019 and Beyond

The continuous pace of technology means that imaging and machine vision yesterday are pale comparisons of what can be accomplished today. Advances in lighting, sensor and camera design, interface technology and computer power have made machine vision more reliable, better and at the same time cheaper to implement.

So what are the short term trends to watch for in the next few years? In this presentation you will learn about two exciting new technologies. The first to watch for are polarized sensors. These sensors will produce images with multiple angles of polarization which can be used to highlight difficult or sometimes impossible to image defects in glass, film, metal or even in the extreme, to yield information about 3D surface defects. They can be used for monochrome or color based polarized imaging.

The second is an extension of the GigE Vision standard from 1Gbs (1 gigabit/sec bandwidth) to 5Gbs (5 gigabits/sec bandwidth). This will enable much faster and higher resolution sensors to be used on a standard gigabit Ethernet connection between the camera and the computer. GigE Vision has heralded many advances to the world of machine vision since it was introduced in 2006 including better price/performance ratios, longer distances between camera and computer, and more reliable connections between the two. In this presentation you will learn how 5Gbs will add even more capability and see a demonstration of the first products to be introduced on the market that are now available GigE Vision 2.0.

Choosing the Best Machine Vision Filter for Your Application
Presenter: Georgy Das, Technical Training Manager, Midwest Optical System, Inc.

Choosing the Best Machine Vision Filter for Your Application

Optical filters are critical components of machine vision systems. They're used to maximize contrast, improve color, enhance subject recognition and control the light that's reflected from the object being inspected. Learn more about the different filter types, what applications they're best used for and the most important design features to look for in each. Not all machine vision filters are the same. Learn how to reduce the effects of angular short-shifting. Discover the benefits of filters that emulate the bell-shaped spectral output curve of the LED illumination being used. And find out more about the importance of a high-quality inspection process that limits the possibility for imperfections and enhances system performance.

Presenter: Georgy Das, Technical Training Manager, Midwest Optical System, Inc.

Georgy Das is a Systems & Solutions Engineer for Midwest Optical Systems. He's a self-described "techie" and early adopter of every new gadget under the sun. His passion for teaching and training is surpassed only by his love for optical filters and providing the simplest solutions to the most complex industrial vision applications on a global scale. His worldwide audiences have appreciated his straightforward presentations and easy-to-implement, cost-effective solutions for their toughest vision applications.

Sensor Technology is Effecting Optics Selection and System Development More Now Than Ever Before
Presenter: Gregory Hollows, Vice President - Imaging Business Unit, Edmund Optics

Sensor Technology is Effecting Optics Selection and System Development More Now Than Ever Before

The trend toward higher and higher resolution sensors continues to move forward at a rapid pace. This will continue to drive increasing demanding requirements on optics to achieve desired system level performance. Making educated decisions is more critical now than ever before to relieve the bottleneck that optics can create regardless of application space.

Appreciating these trends and establishing best practices is the best way to stay ahead of the curve. Understanding the tradeoffs between big pixels and small pixels is the starting point. Sensor technology is moving toward both bigger and smaller pixels, which creates different issues with optics. From there determining how to adjust the technical parameters of the optics is critical to when pushing systems to meet system performance criteria, which will approach limits set by the laws of physics on a regular basis.
