PC Based Machine Vision Platforms
PC-based systems easily interface with direct-connect cameras or image acquisition boards and are well supported with configurable machine vision application software. In addition, PCs provide a wealth of custom code development options using familiar and well-supported languages such as Visual C/C++, Visual Basic, and Java, plus graphical programming environments. However, development tends to be long and complicated, so is usually limited to large installations and appeal mostly to advanced machine vision users and programmers.
