An analog engineer and a digital engineer join forces, use their respective skills, and pull a few bunnies out of a hat to troubleshoot a system with which they are completely unfamiliar.
You rarely get anything extra for free. Engineers who work on vision systems know this. But sometimes other people believe that just putting a camera on it constitutes an effective inspection setup.
