3D Time-of-Flight Imaging –
Ready for Machine Vision?

The EMVA is happy to announce that

Chris Yates
CEO & Co-founder

will present his answer to the frequently upcoming question: Is 3D Time-of-Flight imaging technology ready for machine vision applications?

Chris Yates is the CEO and co-founder of Odos Imaging, having been recruited in 2010 to lead the commercialization of novel time-of-flight technology, originally developed within Siemens, Munich. Since the company was founded the scope and interest in time-of-flight imaging has increased dramatically, and within his presentation Chris will address the topic predominately from a machine vision perspective.

Case Study

COGNEX – In-Sight delivers non-stop operation for top productivity

When running at top speed, Felsomat’s Flexible Hobbing Center 80, or FHC 80 in short, cuts workpieces in less than seven seconds, and even in just six seconds when machining two workpieces simultaneously. Starting with a smooth blank, the machine produces a perfectly milled planetary gear with individual toothing according to the machine settings. The FHC 80 achieves this ultra-short machining time partly thanks to an integrated loading system which, compared to earlier systems, requires less manpower. Case Study
A production worker first loads the so-called “skewer table” before the hobbing machine can start work. In principle, no further supervision by an operator is then necessary once the machining program has been started: from this point on, the In-Sight vison system keeps an eye on feeding of the right blanks and can determine in but a few milliseconds whether the correct material is being fed or not.

New xiSpec Hyperspectral Multi-Linescan Camera model available

Ximea Press Conventional color cameras use a mosaic pattern of red, green and blue (RGB) color filters on top of the pixel matrix. Hyperspectral cameras replace the RGB pattern by many different wavelength filters. While the numerous color filters increase the complexity of the de-mosaicing and reduce the spatial resolution, HSI cameras deliver spectra for individual narrow color bands revealing a different set of information that can also indicate chemical or composition differences of objects of same or similar color imaged by RGB cameras.
