Introduction to Machine Learning


Designing Linescan Vision Systems

In this course you learn about linescan imaging, and how using a scanning technique can be beneficial for efficient image capture of moving objects. Topics cover components for line-scan image acquisition, when to use line-scan, how to achieve optimum results, and trends in the industry. When you complete this course, you will be able to recognize candidate applications for line-scan imaging and understand how to develop and implement line-scan solutions.

High-Speed, Real-Time Machine Vision

This course gives you the insights to achieve the speed and performance you need in your vision systems including system architecture, programming tips, and common challenges. You will understand the ways high-speed is determined and the different real-time performance requirements. The course follows two vision system designs to see how high-speed and real-time techniques are put into practice.

Advanced Vision Guided Robotics

Vision guidance is common in robot applications. This course will detail proper techniques for implementing a vision guidance system and will include the latest technology advances. Attendees should possess basic robotic and system integration knowledge.

Non-Visible Imaging Theory and Techniques

Non-visible imaging methods offer unique benefits for a variety of vision tasks. In this session, you’ll learn more about infrared and thermal techniques and better understand if non-visible imaging solutions are right for your specific needs.

Advanced Color Machine Vision and Applications

Color is important for a growing number of machine vision applications in food, pharmaceutical, automotive and many other markets. This course will start with how color images are formed and then review aspects of human color vision that are important in designing a color machine vision system. Then we concentrate on how to build and apply color machine vision systems to tasks such as automated inspection, tracking, and identification and color matching.

Metrology and 2D Calibration Techniques

Participants will gain an understanding of techniques for creating systems that yield reliable and repeatable measurement results. Practices for proper calibration of imaging systems ranging from appropriate usage of targets to accurate algorithm deployment will be discussed. How to manage images correctly to create repeatable results will be reviewed. Anyone who is developing metrology systems or having and need for accurate measurements will benefit from this curriculum.

Advanced Image Processing

The ability to correctly analyze and classify details and particles in an image can be critical to the success of an imaging application. Strategies around thresholding, advanced morphology and the correct usage of particle filters will be covered. Additional topics include training strategies, images transforms, and image filtering.

Advanced Vision System Integration

Producing a reliable vision system is no accident. It begins with creating a strong specification that carries through to component selection to system development and finally deployment. This course will help the end user and the integrator walk through the steps needed to enhance their projects success.
