Cognex Corporation: Vision software technology

OmniView, from Cognex, is a vision software technology that uses images from multiple cameras to create one seamless and undistorted 360-degree image of any cylindrical surface.

OmniView uses four cameras to inspect the entire cylindrical surface of bottles, cans, vials, or cosmetic containers without the need for orientation or accurate positioning. It can read barcodes, verify text, inspect graphics and measure features at production line speeds of up to 1,200 parts per minute, and can create an “unwrapped” image of the complete surface to which optical character recognition (OCR), and other machine vision software tools can be applied.
