Hi Ruth, Thanks for the question. Here is a resource from a company that is one of the leaders in the production of machine vision cameras and software: https://www.cognex.com/what-is/machine-vision There is a lot of related material and examples of applications. I hope this is helpful. Thanks,

Hi Ruth, I know of no non-technical Computer Vision books but it can be summed up non technically as follows: Computer vision is the art of combining illumination, optics, filters, cameras, image acquisition and image processing techniques (processed via CPU, GPU, and/or FPGA processors) to make automated decisions (be it for quality control, autonomous driving, assisted medical, etc). I hope this helps. Best regards, Mike

Hi Ruth; I find one of the best starting points for machine vision basics is offered up through the Certified Vision Professional program managed by the AIA. If you check out the online basic program videos and references, that is a great place to start. When I hire a new intern or engineer just out of school, this is my starting point to get them introduced to the field. Steve W.
