By using red light we can make the pads appear bright white. The green surface background, on which the pads sit, appears very dark. Since red is an opposing color of green, the background appears very dark. This enhances the robustness of the application by maximizing contrast between the pads and the background. By diffusing the light we can eliminate reflections and move the electrical component closer to the camera. This reduces the footprint of the application and simplifies things.
