What's a next generation vision system?
For machine vision and image processing system designers and developers, it's a given that keeping up with the accelerating pace of technology is a key challenge that's critical for professional success.
For machine vision and image processing system designers and developers, it's a given that keeping up with the accelerating pace of technology is a key challenge that's critical for professional success. Through audience research and conversations with many of you over the last year about next generation vision systems for industrial and emerging applications, I've gleaned that some of the hottest topics that have become top of mind include 3D and non-visible imaging, embedded and mobile vision systems, and deep learning.
With these topics in mind, this month, Vision Systems Design has launched a special content section online at http://bit.ly/VSD-NEXT-GEN, where we focus entirely on these cutting-edge vision technologies. The formerly mentioned main page provides a gateway to content sections on the following four topics:
- 3D imaging
- Non-visible imaging
- Embedded and mobile vision systems
- Deep learning and machine vision software
You can link directly to the 3D imaging section at http://bit.ly/VSD-NEXTGEN-1 to find content on 3D imaging applications and methods including single and multi-camera 3D, laser triangulation, pattern projection systems and those based on the Time of Flight principle. In the non-visible imaging section at http://bit.ly/VSD-NEXTGEN-2 we've aggregated a multitude of content related to certain imaging applications that require imaging beyond the visible wavelength including infrared (IR), ultra-violet (UV), multispectral, and hyperspectral imaging techniques. We've also compiled products, resources and relevant news related to embedded and mobile vision systems at http://bit.ly/VSD-NEXTGEN-3, which covers technologies such as embedded computers, compact vision processors, autonomous vehicles, drones, robotics, and mobile vision systems. For the latest in deep learning and machine vision software techniques, go to http://bit.ly/VSD-NEXTGEN-4 where you'll find valuable information and resources on the most recent and significant developments in this area.
In addition to these four focused sections on cutting edge technology, we've assembled a special video page at http://bit.ly/VSD-NEXTGEN-5 and a resource section at http://bit.ly/VSD-NEXTGEN-6 that is populated with valuable downloads we hope will help you tackle your toughest design challenges.
From September through December, we're committed to providing as much helpful and informative content on these topics as possible. Through our website, e-newsletters, social media, webcasts, guides and more, we'll deliver in-depth coverage including news, case studies, trends and analysis of how these technologies are reshaping the market we all serve.
