Machine vision systems have evolved significantly with the technology advances to tackle the challenges from modern manufacturing industry. A wide range of industrial inspection applications for quality control are benefiting from visual information captured by different types of cameras variously configured in a machine vision system. This chapter screens the state of the art in machine vision technologies in the light of hardware, sowtware tools, and major algorithm advances for industrial inspection. The inspection beyond visual spectrum offers a significant complementary to the visual inspection. The combination with multiple tehcnologies makes it possible for the inspection to achieve a better performance and efficientcy in varied apllipactions. The diversity of the apllications demonstrates the great potential of machine vision systems for industry.
