Machine Vision Systems

PTL has undertaken a range of machine vision projects, from industrial inspection systems for defect detection, to video compression, and through to complex real-time tracking systems.

Our team is familiar with a number of industry standard packages, including Halcon and Matrox Design Assistant, but we are also able to develop bespoke machine vision algorithms in C/C++ where appropriate.

We have particular experience in the use of 3D machine vision systems. Example projects have included using laser line scanning to create 3D models of potatoes, and using Time-of-Flight cameras to control autonomous vehicles. We have delivered a number of projects using the IFM O3Dxx and O3Mxx cameras, and we are able to embed image processing algorithms onto the O3Dxx.
