Over the last few years, camera based imagers have become the go-to choice for data capture applications amongst end users across all verticals. The AIDC market has seen a migration from laser to imagers as end users look towards investing in barcode scanning solutions that can do more than capturing information from 1D and 2D barcodes for product identification in order to future proof their investments.

As AIDC vendors pursue their R&D efforts, vendors should view camera-based imaging as more than just another feature; it opens up an impressive array of new capabilities for image capture and recognition. This VDC View provides an overview of machine vision technology and explains how it presents a growth opportunity for vendors by enhancing capabilities on their existing camera solutions. The report also discusses emerging image capture use cases and analyzes the opportunities these will create.
