Quantitative and qualitative results from applying ray tracing, noise effects, and image signal processing to virtual charts aid engineers in communicating the impact of various lens and camera design parameters. Image quality deficiencies can be observed and mitigated using a virtual chart during the simulation phase. Virtual charts can aid engineers in comparing and resolving discrepancies between designs and builds.

Image augmentations can be applied to the generated targets along with other high-quality reference imagery for application-specific scenes such as facial recognition, bar code reading, optical character recognition, or object recognition/classification.  Having objective test target imagery along with domain-specific scene images enables the correlation of objective camera performance with the performance of the computer vision algorithm.

The Imatest Target Generator is available for free now as a Beta Python library with command line interface
