Fraunhofer Vision Guideline Series

Knowing about the possibilities and limitations of the latest technologies is an important prerequisite for the successful implementation of image processing in the production.

The Fraunhofer Vision Guideline Series wants to contribute to this goal.

We release one volume per year, each volume dealing with one specific topic in the field of industrial image processing and describing the potential of the technology in several fields of application as simply and concretely as possible, in order to facilitate access to the topic for potential users.

The volume 20 is the third, completely revised edition of the first volume with which the Fraunhofer Vision Guideline Series once had started. It offers technical orientation in the dynamic and constantly changing field of machine vision.

The guidelines are published in German and are mainly designated for the German speaking market.
