Computational Imaging (CI) in Machine Vision refers to capturing and combining multiple separately-acquired images, each using a specific lighting technique, to end up with a single optimized computed composite image that better highlights the features required for machine vision inspection.
Using a controller, such as the CCS LSS-2404 Light Sequence Switch, and the included CI Software, up to four channels of lights can be triggered in a preset sequence, automatically timing the external camera exposures with the lighting sequence. The resulting composite image is provided to the vision system software, either through an included SDK or as a direct image feed, to obtain the ideal image and highlighted features for the application at hand.
