Line Scan

Line Scan Cameras ideal for High-Performance Quality Inspection

A line scan camera uses a single row of photosensors, instead of a matrix of them, to capture images of a constant stream of moving material, often called a web. The data stream is then processed within a machine vision system to create two-dimensional image data for industrial quality inspection purposes.

New camera system creates high-resolution 3-D images from up to a kilometer away

A new camera system, developed by researchers in Scotland, could provides high-resolution, 3-D information about objects that are typically very difficult to image, from up to a kilometer away. The photon-counting depth imaging system is likely to be used for scanning static, man-made targets from afar, such as vehicles. With some modifications it could also determine their speed and direction, or be used for remote examination of the health and volume of vegetation and the movement of rock faces, to assess potential hazards from as far as 10 km away.
