The discipline of machine vision encompasses imaging technologies and methods to perform automatic inspection and analysis in various applications, such as verification, measurement, and process control. Driven by trends in Industry 4.0, machine vision has grown steadily over the past few years and now covers a wide range of applications in the most disparate sectors: from automotive to pharma, from food and beverage to electronics. Practically no sector has been left out of this transformation.
