Do you struggle to detect defects such as misshapes, discolouration and incorrect sizes in your agricultural produce? Maybe you’ve wondered if there’s a way of spotting those that aren’t always visible.
In this article we look into the world of agriculture and the machine vision solutions that can help automate the detection of defects.
In April, STEMMER IMAGING held its first CVB User Group Meeting at its headquarters in Puchheim near Munich. More than 50 registered participants had the opportunity to find out more about the latest developments in the Common Vision Blox (CVB) the machine vision programming library from STEMMER IMAGING. With over 80,000 deployed licenses, CVB is one of the most used software platforms for machine vision.
The new microEnable5 marathon VCX-QP frame grabber from Silicon Software allows up to four CoaXPress cameras to be connected simultaneously with a bandwidth of 25 Gbit/s. An on-board FPGA vision processor is fully programmable using VisualApplets for high performance image processing.

Embedded Vision has been THE trend topic in the industry for some time now. Rarely in the past has a vision technology been ascribed so much change potential. A large number of exciting possible uses for Embedded Vision systems already exist in virtually all branches of industry and daily life. But will this technology really lead to a complete upheaval in machine vision?
Our mission is to provide users and developers of imaging applications with competitive advantage by enabling easy access to quality machine vision technology, expertise and support, delivered with passion.
