Global Factory Automation and Machine Vision Market: Overview
Information and communication technology (ICT) have become vital part of social infrastructure. Hence, such system that permits society for better and efficient functioning is needed. The machine vision (MV) is a new concept that meets such expectations. This technology controls machine movement by processing visual information. Machine vision (MV) acts as a backbone for factory automation (FA) in any manufacturing industries. Moreover, machine vision (MV) has extended its advantage in several applications such as security, medicine, and agriculture. Machine vision (MV) automatically captures pictures & transfers files on computer. Captured pictures go through inspection. Small camera is fixed along with image sensor for capturing the image where vision software examines image and data are communicated to other peripheral devices.
