Machine Vision for Industry


Machine vision is concerned with image-based automatic inspection and analysis of industrial products. The module introduces the fundamental ideas to setup and deploy vision applications for a modern manufacturing environment. This module balances theory with practical applications, using industry standard software and hardware for implementation and deployment. 

Learning Outcomes

  1. Illustrate and discuss the working principles and applications of a vision system in a modern manufacturing environment.

  2. Specify and select an industrial vision system for a given application.

  3. Apply a range of image processing techniques for inspection and analysis of objects.

  4. Develop, implement and optimise the environment setups for an industrial vision system.

  5. Assess ethical, business and technical challenges in the deployment of a machine vision system.
