The new polarized sensors from Sony are simplifying some very common machine vision tasks and opening the way to solving others, considered difficult until today due to material variability. These applications include fabric inspection, paint application control or surface inspection of highly reflective metal parts.
As one of the first camera manufacturers, SVS-Vistek is already delivering this type of technology in a serial production model.
This new sensor offers the possibility of measuring all directions and degrees of polarization in a single capture. Imaging processing with these new optical parameters delivers results with an impressive rate of reliability and repeatability.
With this new technology, the image processing effort is significantly reduced, with clearly improved results. This type of technology can be very important for solution developers that face difficult problems such as surface control, transparent materials (water, plastics, glass) or other complex problems.
