Custom Machine Vision Software
Machine vision (MV) is a technology aimed to extract information from an image, analyze it and trigger the execution of a particular set of activities if needed. MV is mainly used in manufacturing for automatic imaging-based inspection, process control and robot guidance.
Since 2013, ScienceSoft has developed custom image analysis software for MV systems used in the manufacturing industry.
MACHINE VISION USE CASES IN MANUFACTURING
MV software systems enable every aspect of automated visual inspection (AVI) of both still and moving objects and their parts:
Object recognition, classification and sorting
Detection of visual defects and anomalies
High-precision measurement for dimensional accuracy
Recognition of item location and positioning
3D scanning, modeling and mapping
Counting in piles, stacks, and more (including touching and overlapping objects)
Barcode / label verification and validation, using optical character recognition (OCR) and 1D / 2D symbol decoding
Machine Vision Benefits You Can Get
Detect assembly defects and increase the output quality.
Improve customer safety by preventing faulty assembly and mislabeling.
Reduce the workforce’s health risks resulting from manual handling of inspected objects.
Reduce waste in the final product by eliminating assembly line and inspection errors.
Shorten delivery time by speeding up inspection at all production and post-production stages.
Comply with regulations, including those on barcode grading, global traceability and mass serialization.

our machine vision solutions cover
We work with versatile image sources, including the option to combine several sources in single image analysis:
- Visible light, including LEDs.
- Line scan imaging.
- Infrared lights.
- Image restoration.
- Noise reduction.
High-level image processing
- Pose estimation (geometric and learning-based).
- Object-based image analysis (OBIA).
- Registration (overlaying images of the same scene taken at different times).
- Pattern matching for location and verification using reference objects.
Such as in pass/fail and match/no-match tests.
Communication of the decision from the MV system to the automation system in control via digital I/O, serial buses, protocols, and networks.
