Introduction to machine vision

Machine vision systems are based on digital sensors housed inside industrial cameras. The cameras are equipped with specialized optics to acquire images, which can be processed by computer hardware and software to analyze and measure various characteristics of the product for decision making.

While human vision is best for qualitative interpretation of a complex, unstructured scene, machine vision excels at quantitative measurement of a structured scene owing to its speed, accuracy, and repeatability. For example, a machine vision system can inspect hundreds, or even thousands, of parts per minute on a given production line. A machine vision system built around the right camera resolution and optics can easily inspect object details that are otherwise too small to be seen by the human eye. Machine vision systems are powered with optical character recognition (OCR) and optical character verification (OCV) systems that enable easy recognition and readability of alphanumeric and character strings of

Machine vision systems offer important advantages like:

Easily locate the position and orientation of a part, compare it to a specified tolerance, and ensure it’s at the correct angle to verify proper assembly
Quickly identify and read barcodes (1-D), data matrix codes (2-D), direct part marks (DPM), and characters printed on parts, labels, and packages and also basis color, shape and size
Easily validate measurement specifications between two geometrical locations and automatically reject items that fail validation metrics
Accurately detect defects, contaminants, functional flaws, and other irregularities in manufactured products
How BCI helps

BCI is one of the leading integrations and solution partners for Cognex and Omron in India. We have deployed and integrated machine vision systems in many projects across Pharmaceutical, Automotive, Retail and Electronics verticals.

As part of our Factory Automation solution stack, these are integrated with high-speed conveyors, customized mountings and pneumatic assemblies to read barcodes, capture product images, test for product quality, absence/presence and then transport this data to BCI’s mobivue stack.


Quality Inspection is critical to success. Liability for defective products, inconsistent quality, rapidly changing costs and pending regulations all challenge automobile and ancillary manufacturers

The need to comply with patient safety and traceability requirements is imperative and machine vision helps meet compliance goals

Machine vision provides the high-speed alignment and traceability for electronics assembly even on the newest miniaturized components and flexible circuits.

Food and Beverage
F&B applications require vision systems that can perform precisely, accurately and quickly to keep up with fast-paced production lines.
