What are the "Three Ds" of Machine Vision?

Broadly speaking, there are 3 categories of machine vision systems: 1D, 2D and 3D. Knowing the characteristics of each — along with the strengths and capabilities of the platforms that deliver inspection applications — will give you the information you need to develop the best plan for your production line.

Choosing the right machine vision platform generally depends on the requirements of your application. The key differentiators include development environment, capability, architecture, and cost. In this Expert Guide, you will learn about the capabilities of 1D, 2D and 3D machine vision system and the physical platforms on which the application tools are based, these include PC-based systems, vision controllers designed for 3D and multi-camera 2D applications, standalone vision systems, simple vision sensors, and image-based barcode readers.
