Abstract
To reduce the cost of a machine-vision system for pharmaceutical capsule inspection, a custom approach is explored. In order to minimize cost while maintain high data throughput, the USB 2.0 interface is used. By developing custom USB 2.0 cameras with minimal hardware and using conventional PCs to perform the image processing algorithms, a low-cost yet versatile real-time system is developed. We discusses the development of a custom USB 2.0 camera and its associated hardware, the use of PCs to acquire image data and perform inspection algorithms, and a custom system controller that synchronizes system signals and manages passed and failed capsules in real time.
