The camera converts a three dimensions real-world scene (3D) in a two dimensions plane (2D) in which the third dimension is "flattened". In the field of machine vision, 2D systems are the most used and they are appropriate when the information on the third dimension is irrelevant for the purpose of control required. For example, in the case of the guides robot, it is necessary that the workpiece lies on a plane whose distance from the camera is known or measured with a device other than the vision system. These vision system are 2D ½ if they operated on different floors but known a priori.

Case History

Tarts quality control

An aesthetic judgment on freshly baked tarts: Specialvideo presents a new artificial vision system that goes beyond the traditional conformity check.

Serigraphic print control

The products are bottles made of plastic material (PE) that need to be checked immediately after finished the hot serigraphy.
The products are therefore subject to slight morphological deformations dictated by  temperature changes that alter the size of the bottles.
The screen prints are generally on the front and on the back, and differ both for the color, depending on the fragrance content , and on the  bottle shape.

Rims Wheels Classifier

Specialvideo has realized a system for the wheels different types identification present on a single line, and for their orientation measurement and for valve hole identification .

Smart cartons completeness check

SPECIALVIDEO has realized a vision system based on a Datalogic smartcamera that, applied to the cartoning machines, allows to verify the boxes presence in each carton layer before closing.


Non-contact measurements

In the field of non-contact measurements SPECIALVIDEO realizes vision systems capable of measuring with high accuracy lengths, diameters, concentricity, eccentricity, linearity, depth etc.

Boxes Completeness Check

Specialvideo has realized a vision system which, applied to the cartoning machines, allows to verify the  cases presence  in each carton layer before closing.

Vision system for robot guide

The robots use  in industrial automation has already widespread thanks to versatility and reliability offered by these devices.

Brakes robot guide

Specialvideo has made several vision systems for the robot guide acts to manipulate brakes or their components.

Taps Robot Guide

Specialvideo has realized a vision system for robot guide in taps component production.


Glass Robot Guide

The glass industry particularity, with regard to the vision systems, concerns the material transparency . It's difficult to identify the observed pieces characteristics, because of their transparency and reflexivity. It's therefore of fundamental importance to correctly plan the illumination geometry.
