It is an inspection in which a camera is used to take an image of an object for inspection, and by analyzing that image as a two-dimensional surface, all kinds of inspections are conducted in an instant. Image processing technology is an industrial field that is being researched and developed as a replacement for “visual inspections” that were previously done using the human eye.

Image processing inspections employ the following five kinds of basic processing (D/P+GIGI), and each basic process inspects (checks) the condition of an object for inspection.

By inspecting (analyzing) images acquired by a camera, results such as position coordinates, presence/absence, and OK/NG are obtained.

The range of applications continues to increase along with the progress of technology

Even if the object is not in the form of straight lines, noncontact measurement can be performed

Gauging

Reading of barcodes, two-dimensional codes, characters, etc.
