I was testing a telecentric lens that allowed a fiber optic light source to be inserted in its side. When testing the lens with the fiber optic light source my image got washed out with a grey color, adjusting gain and offset did not help. When I used an external light source with the same lens and camera I got a normal image. The supplier was unable to tell me why my image turned grey with this light. They were able to tell me the lens, camera, fiber optic cable and light source are compatible. Has anyone else experienced this issue and have information on what caused it/how to correct it?

I am working on a report on applications of machine vision. I came across terms like "Voxels over Raster Grid" and "Point Clouds", when I was reading about improvements in Machine Vision functions. I am a mechanical engineer and I want to have some basic idea what these terms mean in respect to machine vision. Also how are Embedded Vision and Computer Vision different from Machine Vision.

Good morning, I am carrying out experiments on fish behaviour and for that I need to be filming the trials. In the past I have used CCTV cameras (one at each side of the tank where the fish are) and even though the quality is good, I require a single camera with a wide range to capture the whole tank from above. I have also tried a GoPro 3 hero, and the range is good, yet the image quality is not the best under the low light conditions of the room and I can't spot the fish when watching the videos. The room is illuminated mainly with red lamps. I would like your opinion on this - which type of camera I should be looking for and preferably with a software that allows controlling the camera through a computer/tablet. The tank is 7 metres in length and the ceiling above it around 3 metres high. Thank you!

Hi, i have an application where I need to carry out colour inspection. How to handle such task? What kind of cameras and machine vision algorithms do you recommend? So far I have found out that comparing RGB values is not a good way.

We are a manufacturer that prints on continuous web whether it be opaque but mostly clear. The prints can consist of hundreds of designs and unlimited ink colors since we are a custom made to order company. These production runs could last for short period of time ~10min or anywhere to multiple hours. From my experience with vision and the challenges we produce we are trying to find a print inspection solution where the software could easily learn the print with minimal operator involvement and inspect the material for print defects such as print voids. Some challenges to know is that we do not having any registration marks on our product so it is a continuous web print could be within 54-62" wide. If anyone has any solutions or ideas please let me know, thanks in advance!

Are any companies going to Automate/ProMat show in Chicago April 8th-11th, that may be able to help with my issue? This was an older post that I am revisiting. I have a need for some type of vision that can identify the edges of textiles (mostly all white) such as sheets, towels, Wash Clothes, etc. I would envision two types of robotic arms that would be able to fine (grab) the two ends on a side, not opposite ends, and spread them out, to feed into a machine for folding. I understand that the vison may now be able to identify white textile. Any help or a company that may have the vison to do this would be greatly appreciated. Thanks Jeff Nichols

How is data transmitted over camera link affected by using cable lengths longer than the 10 meter limit typically specified? Is it just that the highest frame rates cannot be realized, but lower frame rates are possible? Or is it that the image integrity is compromised?
