News from the Standards
‘Kamaros’ is unveiled as the official name of the
Khronos / EMVA Embedded Camera System API

In March 2022, The Khronos® Group and the EMVA joined forces to establish a Khronos working group to develop an open royalty-free API standard for controlling cameras and sensors in embedded, mobile, industrial, XR, automotive, and scientific markets.
The design of the API is making significant progress and will include loadable layers and multiple language bindings as well as flexible, low-level control over camera functionality. In addition to the work on the API specification, the formal name of the initiative has now been unveiled: ‘Kamaros’ (pronounced Kam-ah-ross).

Establishing a unique and trademarkable brand in parallel with drafting the specification itself is an important part of the standardization process,” said Neil Trevett, Khronos President. “Early and consistent branding builds industry awareness and recognition that will help promote the wide adoption of Kamaros when it ships.
Kamaros evolved from an extensive exploratory process involving over 70 companies working together from March to December 2021 to forge an industry consensus on the need, terminology, scope, requirements, and design methodology for a new open standard camera system API.

Any company is welcome to join Khronos for a full voice and a vote in the evolution of the Kamaros standard. In addition, EMVA members are invited to join the Kamaros Advisory panel at no charge to provide feedback on specification drafts and design directions.

Kamaros is expected to be of particular interest to sensor and camera manufacturers, silicon vendors, embedded and mobile platform vendors, and software developers working on vision and sensor processing. Read more ›

New 8.1-megapixel UV camera

JAI has released the Go Series GO-8105M-5GE-UV, a new 8.1-megapixel, UV-sensitive camera with a high performance 5GBASE-T (5 GigE) interface. The new camera surpasses JAI’s three other UV (ultraviolet) camera models by providing both increased resolution (8.1 megapixels vs. 5 megapixels) and a higher spectral sensitivity covering UVA, UVB, and extending well in to the UVC range.

Compact 8-megapixel camera with Pregius S CMOS sensor
The GO-8105M-5GE integrates the Sony Pregius S IMX487-AAMJ CMOS sensor into a compact form factor of 29 x 29 x 68 mm and produces full resolution 8.1-megapixel images at up to 66 frames per second over the 5 GigE interface.

SICK AppSpace SensorApps 3D Belt Pick

The 3D Belt Pick SensorApp from SICK is specialized for locating and measuring products on a conveyor belt. Working with 3D vision in your robot guidance projects both increases the reliability of your picking process and preserves the quality of the handled products. For each detected product, the SensorApp reports, among other metrics, the location, height and orientation of the product to the robot picking system. The 3D Belt Pick SensorApp features a plug-in concept which makes it easy to extend the SensorApp with new robot communication protocols and customized image processing. Read more ›

Free webinar: Real-time angle measurement in sheet metal bending

Vision Components will host two webinars on 24 January, demonstrating the operation and integration of autonomous angle measurement in metal processing. Thanks to the integrated processor, the sensor directly outputs the workpiece angle in degrees.
The free-of-charge webinars are aimed in particular at manufacturers and distributors of press brakes and metal forming technology. Jan-Erik Schmitt, Vice President Sales, and Klaus Schneider, VC Chief Engineer for Angle Measurement, present the advantages of VC nano 3D-Z laser profilers, which do not require an external processing unit, can be connected directly to machine controls and enable real-time adjustment of the bending process. Following a live demonstration of the solution, Klaus Schneider will be available for individual questions and consultations. Read more ›
