    • 3D sensors as well as 2D cameras can with EyeVision inspect the completeness of the images.
  • color
    • Are all the pills in the blister the same kind or is there a foreign matter in one of the blister cards?
    • For that the EyeVision software has color commands, which even can differentiate between the slightest difference in hue.
