Hyperspectral Imaging Enables Improved Machine Vision

Hyperspectral Imaging Enables Improved Machine Vision

Machine vision is increasingly important for many applications, such as object classification. However, relying on conventional RGB imaging is sometimes insufficient - the input images are just too similar, regardless of algorithmic sophistication. Hyperspectral imaging adds the extra dimension of wavelength to conventional images, providing a much richer data set.

Competing Short-Wavelength Infra-Red Sensing Technologies

Competing Short-Wavelength Infra-Red Sensing Technologies

The widespread adoption of machine vision makes image sensors that can detect light outside the visible spectrum increasingly useful, since the aim is to augment human sight rather than duplicate it. For example, imaging in the short-wave infra-red (SWIR) spectral region, which spans from 1000 to 2000 nm, offers multiple benefits that can supplement conventional cameras.
