In-dash flat panel displays, illuminated LED cup holders, puddle lights that cast logos from an open door to the pavement… The level of sophistication expected from today’s automotive technology captures the extent of automotive engineering innovation, while expectations regarding vehicle form and function is nothing short of perfection. A car is no longer a means to an end; a car has become an experience.
Machine vision has been a boon to manufacturers, enabling visual inspection at production-line speeds with consistency, repeatability, and objective data. Yet there are still some visual inspection tasks that are beyond the capability of typical machine vision systems. Complex assemblies, subtle surface defects, areas of low-contrast, and glass or transparent materials require a higher level of visual acuity, which has often been provided by human inspectors.
Radiant technologies are thoughtfully engineered to achieve the fastest, simplest, and most accurate measurements of light, color, and surfaces. Imaging colorimeters and photometers leverage scientific-grade CCDs, high resolution, low noise, and factory calibration to ensure consistency of data across R&D to production. Utilizing photopic filters, Radiant cameras acquire absolute luminance and color information to qualify devices against human visual perception.
