360° vision inspection is a standard application in CIM SPECTS solutions.
It makes it possible to inspect an item from above instead of making it rotate in front of a camera (which slows line speed) or using three or four cameras to cover a 360° view. Think of a pre-printed 2D code on an injection pen, for instance. The code has to be read and tracked, but you do not know the rotational placement inside the machine. Without the 360° vision inspection technology, you would need a complicated camera set-up in the production line. With 360° vision inspection, everything is done with just one 360° vision inspection from above.
