Re: OTS module

vumalkarp, thanks for the additional info re the vision-enhanced Da Vinci surgical robot, and the link to Given Imaging. I think vision-enhanced surgical robots make a lot of sense, just as they do in the factory for assembly, fabrication, welding, and stocking jobs.

OTS modules are really reducing developement time. This will really act as a catalyst for innovation as many iterations and solutions are possible. machine vision will soar to new heights in the coming days..!

You've definitely got a point there about OTS machine vision components. They've become much more prevalent since vendors have begun designing them using OTS chips and open-source or open-standards software, such as Windows and Linux. They've also become smaller and cheaper.

yes you are right. Da vinci surgical robot is an example

there is another company given imaging http://www.givenimaging.com/en-us/Pages/GivenWelcomePage.aspx is another company working with small cameras for

getting images from inside human body. There is definitely the next step of surgical robots with vision

The HeartLander robot prototype, which DN covered,

http://www.designnews.com/document.asp?doc_id=233973

might be a prime candidate for integrated machine vision. The vision components would have to be extremely small to fit on a heart-crawling robot like this one, but cameras are getting tinier all the time. And the integration of machine vision with robots is definitely a growing trend on the factory floor. Seeing them in surgery may not be far behind.

Off the shelf components like NI modules for machine vision reduces time to develop machne vision considerbly for modern applications . This is a domain that will make waves in healthcare applications

This is an interesting turnaround. Imagine the possibilities of machine vision

being integrated with surgical robots ..! Karel Čapek will be happy had he been alive...!

Machine vision is becoming so ubiquitous in so many different types of products that a new organization, the Embedded Vision Alliance, formed recently to help unite some of these far-flung industries and development silos:

Unlike previous vision trade associations, it's not limited either by industry or geography.

Although several of the vision technologies mentioned in the article started in the medical industry, the origin of machine vision in inspection began in electronics. As the electronics content in other industries has risen, the need for more and better inspection has gone up. That's also happened as the need for higher quality of the end product has risen, even when electronics aren't a major part of the end product, such as consumer food containers.

Machine vision has come a long way in both quality and price.  With off the shelf components and Windows based software, the abiilty to include vision on most products as a quality check has never been more accessible.
