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 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.

Good Day Ruth, may I suggest the courseware that AIA has on their website. The CVP training courseware provides a well rounded explanation of all the principles of machine vision. The basic CVP is available for free and really lays a good foundation for understanding machine vision technology and methods. The advanced CVP training builds on that foundation but is a fee based training. The Vision Show at the Hynes Convention Center in Boston from June 9, 2020 through June 11, 2020 has live training sessions for both the Basic and Advanced CVP training as well as examinations for either or both certifications.
