Expert blog

This is the future stage for our machine vision experts to reveal their tips & tricks:

illustration complex machine vision task
Do we need a system integrator for machine vision?


Certainly, there are reasons for developing your own solution, however, in case you lack the expertise, or do not have time or enough resources, a cooperation with an experienced integrator is the best solution.

In our expert blog we take a look at all the advantages of working with machine and computer vison experts and how to choose the right partner.

AI based recognition of baked goods
The limits of artificial intelligence


In this article we look at the use of AI in image processing and explain why, in our opinion, only the combination of artificial intelligence and human expertise enables reliable machine vision and why it is often recommended to use classical methods or a combination of both.

In our expert blog we explain what needs to be taken into account when using AI .


illustration mobile phone or industrial camera?
Mobile phone or industrial camera?


In this blog, we explain why a mobile phone camera, despite very good image quality, is not sufficient for machine vision applications for reasons such as illumination, robustness, long-term availability, etc.

Why only industrial cameras make sense for measurement and/or inspection tasks, we explain in our expert blog.

Sherlock machine vision software
Sherlock - our insider tip


Many of our customers want to be able to work independently after our initial support in system design, and are looking for an image processing software that is easy to learn and use and includes EVERY common functionality expected from a smart camera or graphical user interface.

Why Sherlock is our first choice, we reveal in our expert blog.
