Trends in Imaging Design: Using Image Simulation to Design Cameras

Learn how digital twins, through image simulation, can streamline specifications and virtual testing of imaging systems. In the end, an imaging system must provide a good image. But what do we mean by that? Most of the time, a good image still refers to photographic-quality images taken with a DSLR. However, if this standard is applied to images for soil monitoring, medical diagnostics, or autonomous driving, it could lead to over- or mis-specifications of the desired results.
