Have you designed with image sensors or cameras in the past? If so, what was your biggest challenge?
My biggest challenge was selecting the lens ... mostly due to my lack of knowledge in optics ...
Next biggest challenge was getting a clean image ... on several occasions, with different image sensor manufacturers, there always seemed to be an obscure setting that got the image cleaned up, but was not intuitive to find in the datasheets
For industrial control applications, or even a simple assembly line, that machine can go almost 24/7 without a break. But what happens when the task is a little more complex? That’s where the “smart” machine would come in. The smart machine is one that has some simple (or complex in some cases) processing capability to be able to adapt to changing conditions. Such machines are suited for a host of applications, including automotive, aerospace, defense, medical, computers and electronics, telecommunications, consumer goods, and so on. This discussion will examine what’s possible with smart machines, and what tradeoffs need to be made to implement such a solution.
