Machine vision, Vision processing, Industry 4.0, Cyber physical systems, Internet of things.


This article focuses on machine vision system which is one of the most important pillars of the industry 4.0. It demonstrates the locations and role of basic elements that are: used in machine vision system and their applications. The paper presents basic structure of the machine vision system with functions of the elements. It gives sequence of general flow processes. The paper explains different types and applications of machine vision systems that are used in an industry 4.0.The paper also explains the evolution of industry from 1.0 to 4.0 and basic components involved in the evolution. Important pillars of the industry 4.0 with their meanings are presented in brief. The basic challenges in implementations of machine vision system are outlined.
