Vision Components manufacture a range of smart digital cameras fitted with DSPs for on-board processing and analysis. The CCD smart digital cameras range from standard to high resolution and are supplied with the programming tools required to develop high speed imaging applications in a compact format. Vision Components Smart digital cameras are designed for OEM applications.
What is a Smart Camera?
Vision Components has the ideal solution for cost-efficient production with optimal quality. In complete autonomy, their Smart Cameras reliably check in real time exact compliance of individual production steps. Leaving you with high quality industrial products which are developed and produced in Germany.
Open CV now running on all Smart Cameras
Vision Components has adapted the open source program library OpenCV to their proprietary VCRT operating system, implementing it on all VC Smart Cameras. OpenCV was originally developed by Intel® and published under a BSD license, running only on Windows, Mac OS X and Linux systems. Integrating it into Smart Cameras has increased their application range, since OpenCV includes many algorithms enabling, for instance
- movement detection
- facial recognition
- object tracking
- contour processing
- image segmentation
The fast image processing library complements VC Smart Cameras, which independently executes all image processing routines thanks to their integrated intelligence, thus replacing standard PC-based systems.
