Vision sensors within vision system cameras use industrial image processing to analyse images captured and thus make decisions on process control based on the interpretation of the data. Typically, these application areas cover presence checking, optical character recognition, optical character verification, print inspection, measurement, surface checking, 2D and 3D code reading, robot guidance and location feedback. Following processing the vision system camera communicates with the production line to give results and statistical data.
Solid-state sensors are the electronic eyes of today’s cameras. The intensity of the incident light is converted into a charge or a digital value that is subsequently processed depending on the application. Basically, image sensors are categorized according to:
Matrix sensors: Matrix sensors like common digital cameras for the consumer market, acquire an image consisting of several lines and columns during a single exposure time. This is the most commonly used type in machine vision by far in a vision system camera.
Line sensors: Line sensors acquire only one line at a time. In many line-scan camera applications, lines captured in sequence are assembled into a rectangular image.
CCD sensors: CCD sensors are continuing to decline in use for industrial image processing; the ﬁrst specimens were developed in the early 1970s from analog bucket-brigade devices and quickly replaced the camera tubes. When they started conquering the consumer market in camcorders, the CCD sensors had reached an attractive price level accelerating their use in machine vision.
CMOS sensors: These are now the dominant sensors used in vision system cameras today. Research into CMOS sensors got impetus in the early 1990s. In 1993 the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (Pasadena, CA, U.S.A.) provided the US space agency NASA with a sensor having a resolution of 128 x 128 pixels being followed by the ﬁrst one-megapixel sensor only three years later. Unlike the manufacture of CCD sensors, the manufacture of CMOS chips and sensors is based on wide-spread standard technology. Therefore, the production of CMOS sensors is in principle more cost-efﬁcient. More important for the sensor properties are the different ways in which image information is read out within the vision system camera.
Basically all solid-state sensors operate according to the same principle:
A fundamental difference between CCD and CMOS sensors is in the read-out of the charges of the individual pixels. This has a signiﬁcant effect on the sensor properties within the vision system camera.
