"It is a really interesting and valuable course. The course went through all the necessary details to start with a Cognex camera in an industrial environment."
In this class, you will be learning about vision systems, their purpose within a manufacturing setting as well as how to develop an application for a Cognex In-Sight Machine Vision System.
We will start by learning the typical ways machine vision systems are employed in todays manufacturing. "Why are they needed?", "How do they operate?" as well as "What are their capabilities?" will be some of the topics we will explore.
We will then take a deep dive into the hardware involved within the Cognex In-Sight ecosystem. We will go over the setup you'd need to achieve in order to properly install one of these vision systems on the manufacturing floor, pass signals back and fourth and be able to communicate with it in a reliable fashion. As we progress through the next sections, we will revisit some of our initial hardware considerations and explore them further.
The core of the class will be spent learning about the In-Sight explorer application. This tool allows a vision systems programmer to create, troubleshoot and modify existing vision system applications. As we progress through the course, you will become familiar with the different tools & techniques at your disposal and which role they will play in your environment.
At the end of each section, you will face a brief quiz which will test your knowledge and make sure that you're getting the most out of the material covered within the class.
