Image Processing: Solutions through Machine Vision

Fraunhofer-Allianz Vision

Fraunhofer Vision Alliance – A Research Network for Industrial Quality Assurance

Automatic image processing and machine vision are basic activities of the Vision Institutes within Fraunhofer. The main goal of the Fraunhofer Vision Alliance is the development of new or improved devices for industrial inspection. Video cameras, infrared cameras as well as X-ray cameras are used for imaging. We can provide turn key solutions including automated handling systems. In finding solutions for each project our customers' options are expanded by the exchange of knowledge and experience between the Institutes involved in the Alliance. This is further complimented by an even wider network of related companies and universities with which Fraunhofer Vision works.

The technologies of Fraunhofer Vision

Training Workshops

It is not always easy to decide whether or not a new technology is well-suited for your applications. Our two-day training workshops can help clarify the decision process. In addition to the conveyance of basic theoretical principles and the introduction of example solutions, our workshops offer the opportunity to get hands-on experience of inspecting your own sample parts using the methods and technologies learned on the workshop. Currently the following workshops are being offered (in German only):

Manual for Industrial Image Processing - Quality Assurance in Practice (German, 510 pages)

Handbuch zur industriellen Bildverarbeitung

The book provides an overview of industrial quality assurance when using automatic image processing. Both decision makers and system users will benefit from this informative text.

Guideline Series of Fraunhofer Vision

Leitfaden zur industriellen Röntgentechnik

Our guideline series describes the possibilities of modern image processing as simply and concretely as possible allowing users to quickly apprise themselves of the newest technologies – a prerequisite for the successful implementation of image processing in production. Each year, we release a new volume about a relevant topic (volume one available in English).
