Application Examples

Optical Identification Systems

Optical reading systems are used in numerous industries, for example, in the automobile, packaging, pharmaceuticals, cosmetics and electronics industries as well as in the food and beverages sector.

The technology for identification of the respective application is derived from the identification of objects - 1D/2D code reading, OCR text recognition or object recognition.
