ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the optical sensors technology as the missing link between simple sensors and full-blown vision systems. It mentions that sensors and vision systems tend to be polar opposites in terms of complexity and capability which leaves a gap in inspection technology. It notes that an optical sensor combines the best features of sensors and vision systems in which it offers more data than a smart camera or sensor as well as is less expensive and complex than vision systems.
