Chris Osterwood, Founder and CEO of Capable Robot Components, presents the "Selecting the Right Imager for Your Embedded Vision Application" tutorial at the May 2019 Embedded Vision Summit.

The performance of your embedded vision product is inexorably linked to the imager and lens it uses. Selecting these critical components is sometimes overwhelming due to the breadth of imager metrics to consider and their interactions with lens characteristics.

In this presentation, you’ll learn how to analyze imagers for your application and see how some attributes compete and conflict with each other. A walk-through of selecting an imager and associated lens for a robotic surround-view application shows the real-world impact of some of these choices. Understanding the terms, the trade-off space and application impact will guide you to the right components for your design.
