The relevant information in many vision applications is encoded into the color of the scenery. This information in normal color cameras is extracted based on the three standard color channels; red, green and blue (RGB), respectively. This color reproduction technique is an approximation and it is often insufficient to reliably solve a given machine vision problem. Hyperspectral imaging overcomes this limitation by providing a greater number of spectral bands, while maintaining an adequate spatial resolution.
This article will go through the evolution of this technology and explain some of the benefits of it. It will help your decision on how to transition your current CCD design to use a Sony Exmor CMOS sensor.
Technique and Benefits of RGB-IR sensors. Sensors are increasingly using RGB+IR technology. What does this mean for you and when is it best used? Let’s examine.
