Handbook of machine vision.


Handbook of machine vision.

Ed. by Alexander Hornberg.



465 pages




Finding that most handbooks on machine vision tend to restrict their coverage primarily to the algorithms of image processing, Hornberg (physics and photonics, U. of Applied Sciences in Esslingen, Germany) presents this text as an introduction to machine vision systems that covers the entire imaging change from image capture onwards and integrates the specialized mechanical, electrical, optical, and software engineering aspects of the of the field. The first two chapters address processing of information in the human visual system and the overall design process and considerations for building a machine visual inspection system. Remaining chapters discuss lighting in machine vision, optical systems in machine vision, camera calibration, camera systems in machine vision, camera computer interfaces, machine vision algorithms, and machine vision in manufacturing.
