On line automatic camera setting-up and configuration

SIL developed a new method for automatic camera setting-up and configuration, ensuring the best image quality achievable.

During the Monotone trials, it was noted that considerable time was spent on setting up the camera configuration parameters when the machine was move to a new location. Repeated calculations of these parameters often manifest into a laborious task. What is more, some of these parameters, such as the alignment of the camera, were assessed visually. This often results in images with geometrical error. In order to overcome this problem, in addition to the image acquisition software, SIL developed, coded and implemented software, which automatically calculates the following parameters:
- Camera alignment
- Line speed and resolution
- Focusing
- White balancing

Real time factory tests showed that the method works effectively. As a result, SIL has decided to implement it on SIL’s mainstream commercial products. This automatic camera setting-up program method can be adapted to any on-line image acquisition.
