Polarized Vision

One of the challenges that machine vision has always faced is the inspection of low-contrast images and highly reflective samples.

Mono and color cameras can detect the light intensity and wavelength, which in case of glare or complex object textures is not enough for inspection or measurement.

Machine vision engineers now have a new ally to solve these tricky and hard challenges: the polarized cameras.

These cameras make use of light polarization to reveal hidden material properties and provide new possibilities for image processing by detecting and filtering different angles of light polarization when reflected, refracted, and scattered from an object.

Reducing glare effects, highlighting an edge position, or even knowing how different materials change the properties of light is an important advantage that can be the game changer for complex projects.

Do you want to know more about the potential of polarized light, how polarized cameras work and when you should select a polarized camera rather than a classic mono or color camera?

This webinar will cover all these topics. We will guide you through the world of light polarization, the physics laws behind this phenomenon, how polarized sensors mounted on industrial cameras work, the image processing performed on a polarized image, and how to choose between a polarized setup or a classic setup.

  • Introduction to polarization.
  • Polarsense sensors.
  • How to analyze a polar image.
  • Applications.
  • Polar sensors vs Classic sensors.
  • Practical Example.
