Software delves deeper into inspection with hyperspectral imaging

New possibilities for quality inspection are offered by EyeVision, which offers software with a hyperspectral evaluation function, enabling it to process and evaluate hyperspectral images.

Hyperspectral imaging (HSI) or chemical imaging (CI) is a combination of spectroscopy, imaging data acquisition and digital image processing.

The recorded channels contain the visible region absorption spectrum, as well as non visible, near infrared region (NIR). As a result, the recorded amount of data as well as the information content of the recorded images are extremely high, claims EyeVision.

The user can now not only operate on the surface but venture into more deeper spectrums to determine chemical information, such as water, fat or chlorophyll contents,  tissue oxygenation, tissue segmentation, bacterial exposure or tissue hemoglobin index, for example.

The software will support the hyperspectral camera by Photonfocus in the near future, reveals EyeVision. The camera based on an IMEC sensor with narrow pass band filters has a wavelength region from 600 to 1000nm. With the binning module the hyperspectral data can be pre-processed in the camera. The sensors with line filters and 5×5 mosaic filters are offered in the camera with 25 pass bands from 600 to 975 nm.

The software opens new application fields in medicine, life science and other industries, for hyperspectral evaluation of analysis and diagnostics in a range of quality inspection tasks across many industries, from electronics, industrial and scientific, to the food industry.
