The global smart camera market is teeming with products that offer machine vision: cameras that are highly flexible, small, and can be reprogrammed to suit
a specific need.
The smart camera is no longer restricted to the smaller tasks of identifying QR codes and being overwhelmed with external software and applications that
require additional computing stations. In simple terms, smart cameras are reducing in size as well as cost, due to the same being true of camera sensors.
The memory held by semiconductors is growing by the day. All this has created a much greater usage possibility for the global smart camera market through
the improving potential of the embedded processor. One can now get a smart camera with built-in functionalities that were previously restricted to only
The key players in the global smart camera market include XIMEA GmbH, Matrox Imaging, Vision Components GmbH, Microscan Systems, Inc., Polaroid
Corporation, Olympus Corporation, Panasonic Corporation, Sony Corporation, Nikon Corporation, Canon Inc., and Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd.
On-board Processing Propels Global Smart Camera Market
Some of the current uses of smart cameras are in quality control, process monitoring, object recognition, and barcode inspection. Most of these
applications require high-speed processing architectures to be employed in smart cameras. CMOS or even CCD imagers are mostly controlled by FPGAs. They
allow the imager to take the snapshot and immediately perform other necessary functions through its neighboring operators. These operators can include
Bayer interpolation, filtering, and flat-field correctors. What this does for the entire image processing task is complete a list of pre-processing
functions to be performed, thereby leaving the on-board processor to perform the tasks that a CPU or a DSP would earlier do.
Overall Advantages Imparted by Smart Cameras
Of the multiple resourceful implementations of the products within the global smart camera market, the main ones are as follows:
The global smart camera market, today, finds great scope in its application segments of consumer goods, commercial goods, military and defense, food and
beverages, healthcare, pharmaceuticals, and automotive. Each of these segments have varied levels of importance in the market regions of North America,
Latin America, Western Europe, Asia Pacific excluding Japan, Japan, and MEA. It is therefore clear that the global smart camera market is very much in need
and will continue to expand for the foreseeable future.
