Machine Vision

Machine vision systems for quality control in production lines is one of BitSim NOW’s specialities. BitSim NOW designs complete systems based on standard components, or – for machines in larger quantities – with inhouse developed electronics and algorithms for optimal cost efficiency.

BitSim NOW offers expert knowledge within machine vision. We deliver consultant services and develop vision components alternatively complete tailor-made vision systems.

BitSim NOW works with image analysis applications for industrial, medical and military use. The demands are often high on both real-time aspects and reliability.

A system usually consists of lighting, camera, mechanics, computer and software. BitSim NOW has the knowledge of lighting, optics, electronics, image analysis methods and system development, needed for a successful vision project.

Most of our vision system deliveries are based upon our propriatory platform Automatic Vision Test System (AVT), an easy-to-use general purpose vision software developed during 10+ years. AVT is utilized in many different applications, as quality control when producing automotive instrument clusters, clay roof tiles and steel rods.


Most of BitSim NOW’s vision systems are based on a general vision platform (AVT). AVT is an advanced graphical vision environment that is designed to perform a large amount of tasks in a flexible way. AVT offers a variety of vision tools and supports all Ethernet and Firewire cameras.
