New Category of Machine Vision to Unlock a New Performance Dimension

Since their inception 150 years ago, all conventional video tools have represented motion by capturing a number of still frames each second. Displayed rapidly, such images create an illusion of continuous movement. From the flip book to the movie camera, the illusion became more convincing but its basic structure never changed. For a computer, this… Continue reading New Category of Machine Vision to Unlock a New Performance Dimension
