The human visual system engages a wide field of view peripheral vision in conjunction with selectively scanned high resolution foveal vision. The effective scene resolution of the human eye is equivalent to a camera with 108 pixels. This performance is difficult if not impossible to match with available camera technologies. Canpolar East has recently developed a machine vision system that utilizes a low resolution wide field camera plus a high resolution narrow field camera that is able to fixate at 30/60 frames per second. The system was specifically designed to match human visual performance in industrial inspection tasks. The system includes software that selects objects of interest from the low resolution images for high resolution imaging. The system is capable of selection and fixation at about 25 'saccades' per second.
