In factories, automatic inspection is performed using images that are acquired using industrial cameras. In these industrial cameras, lenses with various focal lengths are used according to their intended purposes. It is important that the optical systems of industrial cameras have small outer diameters, close minimum object distances and high resolution. In an optical system with a long focal length, the movement of the moving group increases during focusing, and this movement makes it difficult to reduce the minimum object distance. In addition, to achieve higher resolution, it is important to suppress the degradation that occurs because of machining errors or assembly errors. To solve these problems, we developed a floating focus system in which the diaphragm is fixed, and we introduced a moving group that is held using a helicoid and a fitting structure.

  • For more than 30 years, the Electronic Imaging Symposium has been serving those in the broad community - from academia and industry - who work on imaging science and digital technologies. The breadth of the Symposium covers the entire imaging science ecosystem, from capture (sensors, camera) through image processing (image quality, color and appearance) to how we and our surrogate machines see and interpret images. Applications covered include augmented reality, autonomous vehicles, machine vision, data analysis, digital and mobile photography, security, virtual reality, and human vision. IS&T began sole sponsorship of the meeting in 2016. All papers presented at EIs 20+ conferences are open access.

    Please note: For purposes of its Digital Library content, IS&T defines Open Access as papers that will be downloadable in their entirety for free in perpetuity. Copyright restrictions on papers vary; see individual paper for details.
