Comparison between machine vision and artificial vision
In the past, artificial vision is the major method for the measurement, recognition and analysis in the process of the volume industrial production. Due to the low efficiency, poor stability and low accuracy of artificial vision processing, machine vision can greatly improve the processing efficiency and automation. Meanwhile, machine vision is also adopted to replace the artificial vision in hazardous working environments that are not suitable for manual operations or where the human eye cannot meet the requirements, including nuclear power plant monitoring and wafer defect detection. More importantly, machine vision can better facilitate information integration, which is one of the basic technologies for computer integration. Machine vision system can acquire massive information quickly and better facilitate the automation processing and information integration. Therefore, it is widely applied in the modern automatic production, including assembly positioning, product quality inspection, product recognition, dimension measurement, etc. The main difference between the machine and artificial vision is list in the table.
