Machine Vision System (MVS)

Definition - What does Machine Vision System (MVS) mean?

A machine vision system (MVS) is a type of technology that enables a computing device to inspect, evaluate and identify still or moving images.

It is a field in computer vision and is quite similar to surveillance cameras, but provides automatic image capturing, evaluation and processing capabilities.

Techopedia explains Machine Vision System (MVS)

A machine vision system primarily enables a computer to recognize and evaluate images. It is similar to voice recognition technology, but uses images instead.

A machine vision system typically consists of digital cameras and back-end image processing hardware and software. The camera at the front end captures images from the environment or from a focused object and then sends them to the processing system. Depending on the design or need of the MVS, the captured images are either stored or processed accordingly.
