Case Study

Point Grey
Rolling Down The Cost os 3D Confocal Microscopy 

Historically, engineers employed 3D printers simply to produce rapid prototypes of products from digital files. But since new 3D printers are now capable of building parts with dimensional tolerances equivalent to those of traditional machining techniques, they are also being considered for use in production environments. Read on…

ViDI System
Micro-cracks detection on strongly structured background : Example of solar panel inspection

The most challenging types of defects are the micro-cracks, mostly due to the strongly structured background which typically shares many features with them. Provided with a representative set of sample cracks, the learning system forms a reliable model of that defect. At the same time, it learns to distinguish the cracks from the similar appearance of the background pattern. The resulting detection is therefore highly specific and selective at the same time. Read on…
