Jessica Gehlhar, formerly an imaging engineer at Edmund Optics, presents the "Introduction to Optics for Embedded Vision" tutorial at the May 2019 Embedded Vision Summit.

This talk provides an introduction to optics for embedded vision system and algorithm developers. Gehlhar begins by presenting fundamental imaging lens specifications and quality metrics such as MTF. She explains key parameters and concepts for specifying off-the-shelf or custom optics. Some optical design basics and trade-offs will be introduced.

Gehlhar also explores manufacturing considerations, including testing the optical components in your product, and the industrial optics used for a wide range of manufacturing tests. These tests and calibrations become important with designs that include multi-camera, 3D, color and NIR.
