【Focus】Artificial Intelligence New Air Vent “Industrial Eye” Machine Vision
The author:SIPO  Time:2018-04-02  Read: 133

In March of this year, when the Korean chess king Li Shishi conceded his defeat, we truly felt that the era of artificial intelligence was coming. I was too late to prepare for Xiaobian, and everyone was already imagining the future of artificial intelligence in business, health, transportation, and transportation. A bright future for life. Artificial intelligence has changed every aspect of life in the past 60 years. The deep learning algorithm has been regarded as a great achievement. Machine vision, which is hailed as the "eye of industry," also benefits from the improvement of this algorithm, and it is being used as an artificial method. Smart, a fast-developing branch, is expected to become the next new enthusiasm for science and technology.

Looking at the international market, there are many giant companies such as Apple, Facebook, Google, and Amazon in this layout. Apple has acquired Perceptio, Turi, and Tuplejump successively since the end of last year.

The darling of the post-economic crisis era

Recalling the development of machine vision in China, it can be roughly divided into three stages. First is the budding period from the early 1990s to the beginning of 2006. Some engineers from research institutes set up visual companies and started to do some basic image processing and analysis. Work, customers are mainly concentrated in foreign-owned foreign-funded, Sino-foreign joint venture manufacturing enterprises and a large number of export-processing orders in the modeling part of the domestic manufacturing enterprises; followed by the 2006-2009 start-up period, the promotion of deep learning algorithms, making the image recognition accuracy rate Increased to 90%+, the customer base has expanded to OEM equipment manufacturers and some large food and beverage companies that have quality inspections and monitor related requirements; after the economic crisis, domestic OEM equipment suppliers, SI, and accessories business opportunities have come and the performance has increased significantly. Therefore, from 2009 to now, it belongs to the rapid growth of machine vision.

From the perspective of market size, due to the late start of China's machine vision industry, the overall market base before 2009 was small, and it entered a period of rapid development after 2009, benefiting from many industries such as electronics manufacturing, municipal transportation, automobiles, food and packaging machinery, etc. With the increase in demand and the growth brought about by the endogenous recovery in the post-economic crisis era, the industry achieved rapid growth of 48% in 2010. By 2015, the scale of China's instrument vision market has reached 2.2 billion yuan, accounting for 8.3% of the world's total, of which the semiconductor and electronics manufacturing sectors accounted for half of the industry (46.4%). During the 13th Five-Year Plan period, driven by the China-made 2025 policy, the growth rate of China's machine vision market is expected to remain at around 20%.

The future market still has three main drivers

According to the analysis, the advent of the era of smart manufacturing is the biggest development opportunity for the industry, and there are still three major driving factors for downstream industry development, cost savings and technological progress.

Wide range of application needs

Applications in manufacturing and other areas that are constantly expanding have brought about an increase in the demand for machine vision. Extensive application also determines that machine vision will be collected, analyzed, transmitted, and judged by simple data in the past. It will gradually develop in the direction of openness. This trend also indicates that machine vision will be further integrated with automation. Although the manufacturing industry is vulnerable to the deterioration of the economic environment, machine vision has become more and more widely used in other fields such as transportation and security.

Cost savings

With rising labor costs, machine vision applications can effectively reduce costs. As modern industrial automation technology matures, more and more manufacturing companies consider how to use machine vision to help the production line achieve inspection, measurement and automatic identification functions to increase efficiency and reduce costs, thereby maximizing production efficiency.


Machine vision systems are made up of a variety of technologies and therefore require expertise in multiple areas. The development of vision systems requires attention to hardware, software, and their cross-border integration to provide end users with cost-effective, reliable solutions. Over the past few years, the continuous progress in the fields of imaging systems, lighting systems, processors, etc., their costs have been declining, and their sizes have become smaller and smaller. Thanks to innovations in the field of machine vision and the integration of advanced image processing algorithms, world systems are being used in more areas of industrial automation.
