Cabe,

Can you pleae give few examples of "Re-Inventing The Wheel in this area". My understanding is that most of the repetitive tasks are provided by vendors in the form of libraries / built-in functions.

A very nice look at the role of multicore in future vision systems. Multicore seems like a natural for real-world vision systems going forward.

Image analysis and machine vision should be an open-source field. I don't want to re-invent the wheel in this area. I have a few applications I would love to use such tech in, but I have shied away from the task due to the daunting work in entails.

Agreed, the camera should just take pictures. The high-level work should be handled by more powerful computer systems.

One approach that is being used is distributing the processing as well.  Many of the high level functions do not need to be performed at the camera level.  Putting the "low level" image functions in the camera reduces the amount of data that needs to be transmitted.  The systems you speak of are capable of going through feature extraction at the camera level and then communicating that higher level information to a centralized system (or a hierarichy of processors) to provide system function.

In order to keep in line with safety protocols, industrial networks need to be filtered in a semantic way so that only information related to diagnostics is flowing back to the vendor and that any communications that could be used for remote machine operations are suppressed.
While people may talk about the procurement process, the procurement discipline actually encompasses a number of different processes. They include spend analysis, supplier relationship management, and contract management, just to name a few.
As the Industrial Internet of Things and machine-to-machine communications movements gain speed, some companies are asking themselves, “Wait. How much information do we really want to flow in and out of our premises? Aren’t we supposed to be doubling down on cyber security?”

Extruded aluminum continues to gain traction as a mainstream OEM choice for designing, engineering, and producing component parts. The alloy and the technique have marched aggressively through the awareness and understanding phases and are now solidly in adoption territory.
