For many years, machine vision was extremely limited in its application due to required highlight-controlled environments, expensive sensor technology, and restrictive feature detection technology. The advent of new Deep Learning (DL)-based machine vision technology is set to change the dynamics of this technology and ignite the industry, creating new classes of applications and enormous market opportunities. Machine vision technology is in the process of transition and dramatic expansion.
In this report, ABI Research takes a deeper look at the technology developments that have taken place in the machine vision space, the technical challenges in implementing machine vision, the new applications enabled by DL-based AI, and the total size of the machine vision market opportunity. This report gives a holistic overview and assessment of vendors in every segment of the machine vision technology stack: sensor manufacturers, chipset vendors, software suppliers, DL-Frameworks, and the end market applications and purchasers of the technology.
The report covers significant vendors in the space, which includes machine vision sensor vendors Cognex, Basler AG, Siemens, Keyence, Velodyne, and OMRON. Companies also covered range from the established and new player supplying chipsets, Nvidia, Intel, Quick Logic, Xilinx, Graphcore, Cambricon, ARM, CEVA, NXP, and Qualcomm, to machine vision software vendors AWS, Clarifai, Ever AI, SenseTime, Megavi Face ++, Irida Labs, MVTec, Deep Vision, Wrnch, and Cognex.
