At basic levels, a vision system is technology that employs computers, cameras or detection devices to scan, read or capture information relating to goods, unit loads or products. The technology records and processes the information captured in the field of vision and determines the eventual outcome. In short this means the device sees the goods or unit load and determines what or how they should progress through the automated handling system.
Types of detection systems can include, from the very basic, bar code scanners, light or lazer beams and cameras right up to the highly technologically advanced, metal detectors and even X-ray inspection systems.
