Machine vision inspection is an important branch of artificial intelligence. It has been more than 20 years since its inception, and its functions and applications have been gradually improved and promoted with the development of industrial automation.
In the early 1980s, a global research boom began, machine vision was booming, and new concepts and new theories emerged.
The initial stage was from 1990 to 1998, during which time the real machine vision system market had very little sales. Major international machine vision inspection systems manufacturers have not yet entered the Chinese market. Prior to 1990, there were only a few laboratories in the universities and research institutes that studied image processing and pattern recognition. In the early 1990s, engineers from these research institutes set up their own vision companies to develop first-generation image processing products, and people could do some basic image processing and analysis. Although these companies have successfully solved some practical problems with visual technology, such as multimedia processing, print surface inspection, license plate recognition, etc., their functions and reliability in terms of software and hardware are not good enough, which limits their use in industrial applications. Development potential. In addition, an important factor is that the market demand is not large, many engineers in the industry have no concept of machine vision, and many companies do not realize the importance of quality control.
