DECEMBER 3, 2009--On Dec. 8, 2009, Vision Systems Design will host a webcast entitled "Integration Insights - 3-D Imaging for Machine Vision." To be presented by Professor Daniel Lau of the University of Kentucky, the presentation will provide engineers and system integrators with the basic information tools they can use to implement 3-D machine vision in their applications.

The webcast will introduce the human visual system, 3-D machine vision, and 3-D vision methods and applications. It will show the audience how to extract 3-D information from an image, and thus enable many important tasks, including robot grasping, navigation, and traffic analysis. The webcast will highlight some of the problems, solutions, and typical applications of different types of 3-D vision including single-camera methods using interpretation of object size, texture gradients, occlusion, color intensities, and angle of observation, dual-camera methods (or stereo cameras) using epipolar geometry, and projected striped light imaging.
