Machine Vision: a key enabler for the 4th Industrial Revolution
Machine vision plays a major role in robotics and automated manufacturing processes. Investment in the space is seen through the increased level of patent activity over the last decade. The three top patent owners are Japanese firms Fanuc, Canon and Epson. Fanuc has been at the forefront of machine vision specific to robotics guidance for many years, dedicated to developing integral vision products instead of relying on third-party solutions. Fanuc’s active patent families related to machine vision for robotics have increased by 138% over the last decade.
