The Guideline Series
Publications are a very important tool to assist potential users to gain insight into the complex field of image processing. The Vision guideline series comprises more than a dozen volumes. Each volume focuses on a specific topic of industrial image processing and describes the potentiality of the technology in several fields of application as simply and concretely as possible. The »Manual of Industrial Image Processing«, which is more than 500 pages strong, has been republished in 2008 and completes the guideline series of the Fraunhofer Vision Alliance.
The 3D Measuring Technology Market Study
The long-term Market Study »3D Measuring Technology in the German Automotive and Supplying Industry« of Fraunhofer Vision was conceived as a combined quantitative and qualitative analysis to offer support to users and suppliers of 3D measuring technology. Furthermore, it is beneficial to decision makers, who require this type of market relevant information intended for the practical application of technologies in the industrial environment.
The study offers a differentiating view of new optical 3D measurement technologies in contrast to traditionally applied tactile methods. The main issues covered are the description of typical measurement requirements and objects, details of the measurement procedure, information about user behaviour, as well as potential improvements concerning hardware, software and service.
