Introduction to Line Scan Vision Technology

Image acquisition for large, cylindrical, and fast-moving parts

There are two types of acquisition methods to acquire an image of an object - area scan and line scan. The most common 2D machine vision systems use area scan cameras, which require a complete matrix of pixels to be exposed at the moment of acquisition. By contrast, line scan cameras contain a single row of pixels, building the final 2D image pixel line by pixel line.
