Automatic inspection, process controls, robotics, and measurement systems are becoming dependent on machine vision. Machine vision supports those applications using smart cameras or vision devices and image recognition software. The low entry point cost of vision devices along with open source software has allowed engineers, educators, and makers to pursue research and development projects in this exciting area of advanced technology. So, how can vision devices be prototype?  In this week-long webinar course, you will begin an investigation into vision devices from the technological viewpoint of embedded vision and machine vision systems. In addition, lab projects will be provided and discussed to allow the online participants to explore vision concepts using off-the-shelf components in their home workshop or lab.
