Vision Systems Questions
I am looking for a vision inspection system that could be mounted outdoors (on bridges for example) looking at the surface of a flowing water body to measure invasive plant fragments that are flowing by the camera. The measurement does not have to be absolute quantity, but some relative measurement of the "flux" of fragments in the frame. This is for use in measuring the effects of invasive plants infestations flowing from streams into lake water bodies. Do you have any recommendations for a vision inspection system?

Dear Mike Willey, The overall application idea is clear, but could you maybe try to also specify certain parameters like: Resolution, Speed (Frames per second), color/mono, CCD or CMOS, Operational system, interface, target price, volume, Libraries you use etc.
Mike -- This is a very interesting project. I know of no commercial machine vision system that comes close to what you are looking to accomplish. I believe you will have better luck searching for a university to work with than with a commercial company.
Mike, Are there other types of green plant matter flowing through and the system needs to distinguish invasive from non-invasive? Alternatively can the system detect green matter and apply a rule of thumb for how much is likely invasive?
