Whitepaper: Designing a Vision System for Imaging Applications

Published: 28 Apr 2019 | Author: Mike Rees

Lumenera vision system whitepaperLumenera has released a whitepaper outlining the technical requirements for building a vision system for imaging applications. Imaging systems for UAVs (unmanned aerial vehicles) are vital for a wide range of applications, including mapping, inspection, environmental management and defense/law enforcement.

A number of factors need to be considered when designing a vision system, including the hardware platform, the operating system, the software and API, and the camera and its lens. Both the camera and the lens should be selected as a pair based on overall system requirements.

The Lumenera whitepaper discusses:

  • Working Distance and Field of View
  • Contrast and Modulation Transfer Function
  • Depth of Field
  • Telecentric Lenses
  • Lens Compatibility
  • Image Sensors – Sensor Shutter, Sensor Format, 35 mm sensors, Pixels, Color
  • Camera Build Quality, Quantum Efficiency, Color Reproduction, Camera Framerate, GPIO and Reliability
  • USB 3.0 Interfaces

This overview of high-level requirements is a first step in helping UAS system integrators identify the correct setup for unique imaging applications.
