Vision sensing

December 1, 2006


The new color version of Omron’s ZFV-C electronic sensor offers sensing capabilities close to human vision, including the ability to distinguish shapes and colors, says the company. Color sensing enables the unit to see images invisible to monochromatic sensors and makes the sensor more reliable when inspecting complex targets, says the company. Integrated color filters enable sensing of only selected colors when necessary to get a better image.
