Sensitivity and resolution are two important aspects of any MV system. Resolution is responsible for distinguishing objects, while sensitivity is a machine's ability to detect objects or faint pulses in dim light or when wavelengths are not visible. These systems are especially helpful in monitoring the working environment. It provides functions such as process control, robot guidance and automatic inspection in industrial applications. Industrial production and manufacturing activities are becoming increasingly complex, and the human eye's keen perception, observation and inspection of production activities have become more difficult and less reliable. Due to the increasing demand for efficient and reliable inspection and measurement, the technology is widely adopted in industrial operations and significantly replaces manual inspection and measurement. Machine vision systems deploy smart cameras and image processing for measurements and inspections.


The technology is gaining considerable traction in food and packaging, automotive, pharmaceutical and other verticals due to capabilities such as improved object detection, enhanced analytics, monitoring tolerances and accurate component measurements. All these factors are expected to drive global market growth over the forecast period. However, the need for efficient system operators due to insufficient training is a constraint that may hamper the steady growth of the market. Thus, driving the 3D Machine Vision market revenue.
