Within the field of Artificial Perception, Vision systems are tools that permit perceiving reality by means of electronic cameras. These can be constructed based on different technologies, so, in many cases, they enable us to perceive what the human eye cannot see.
Vision technologies offer the possibility of automating a large number of industrial processes with a much greater precision than is possible with human work. These processes include quality controls, dimensional control, stock control in logistics, contactless deformation measurement, or robot guiding, among others.
The characteristics of the technology, especially its speed and the fact that no contact is required, are allowing the replacement of manual and undesired operations (or in some cases, the execution of tasks that cannot be done by other means), also contributing towards the digitalization of companies, as they incorporate relevant information about production processes.
Some of the benefits afforded by this technology include: real time quality control, early defects detection and real time monitoring of the production process.
