Flashback on Embedded VISION Europe
APIs for Accelerating Vision and Inferencing: an Industry Overview of Options and Trade-offs

Neil Trevitt, Vice President Developer Ecosystems at NVIDIA and President of Khronos Group, gave a talk about how the landscape of SDKs, APIs and file formats for accelerating inferencing and vision applications evolves rapidly.
Low-level compute APIs, such as OpenCL, Vulkan and CUDA are being used to accelerate inferencing engines such as OpenVX, CoreML, NNAPI and TensorRT, being fed by Neural Network file formats such as NNEF and ONNX.
Some of these APIs, like OpenCV, are vision-specific, while others, like OpenCL, are general-purpose. Some engines, like CoreML and TensorRT, are supplier-specific, while others such as OpenVX are open standards that any supplier can adopt. Which ones should you use for your project?

Neil’s persentation may be downloaded here.

Adimec and Tegema line up for advanced sensor alignment

Image Adimec has entered into a partnership with Tegema, a multidisciplinary system integrator with 40 years of experience in applied precision engineering and mechatronics for production automation, to develop a machine that automatically aligns camera lenses to state-of-the-art CMOS image sensors.
Building on 40 years of system integration experience in applied precision mechanics and mechatronics for factory automation, Tegema is taking care of the design and manufacturing. Adimec brings to the equation its 25-year history in high-end industrial imaging solutions. It plans to use the resulting modular system in a broad range of projects requiring high volumes and ultra-high accuracies. Read more ›

LUMIMAX® Knowledge Base with background information on LED lighting technology

While the human eye can adapt itself to a wide range of environments and situations, the camera only sees what is actually made visible to it by the lighting conditions. Accordingly, the image quality of your Machine Vision application is entirely dependent on the right choice of lighting.
The idea behind the LUMIMAX® Knowledge Base is to give you some background knowledge of LED lighting technology, to simplify your choice of the right lighting and to inform you about the kinds of applications for which our LUMIMAX® LED lighting can be used.
All in all, you will receive a compact lighting encyclopaedia, which will advise you in your daily work. Access Knowledge Base ›

Case Study

Automated Rivet Hole Inspection in Aircraft Section Assembly


Aircraft production presents various technical challenges, such as large product dimensions, complex joining processes, and the need for proper organization of assembly tasks. Overcoming such challenges while enforcing tight tolerances and managing small batch sizes is often difficult to achieve with a high degree of cost efficiency. Read more ›

VeriSens vision sensors control Universal Robots

Image The new smart VeriSens vision sensors XF900 and XC900 control the collaborating robots (cobots) of Universal Robots within only a few minutes of setting up. The robot-compatible vision sensors are mounted directly on the cobot or above it. Thanks to the SmartGrid (patent pending), calibration in terms of image distortion, conversion into world coordinates, and coordinate alignment between the vision sensor and robot take place automatically and extremely easy. This eliminates the conventional required elaborate manual “hand-eye” calibration of the robot and vision sensor. Read more ›

Reduce time to market with transport layer IP Cores

Image The core competency of engineers designing machine vision cameras and systems is usually configuring the core camera features to provide the best possible image while meeting size, weight, power budget and other requirements. But they also have to devote considerable time and effort to successfully streaming the image from the camera to the host. Leading edge vision transport layer standards such as GigE Vision, USB3 Vision and CoaXPress (CXP) are complex and are evolving, so several months of work by experienced protocol engineers is typically required to design the interface.

Newest multi-spectral prism cameras: up to 146% more resolution at up to 7.5X higher frame rates

Image JAI has launched a new generation of prism cameras in its Fusion Series of multi-spectral imaging solutions. The new FS-3200D-10GE and FS-1600D-10GE cameras have two-channel dichroic prisms that divide the incoming light to two precisely-aligned CMOS area scan imagers. One channel captures light from the visible spectrum (approximately 400 nm to 670 nm) and delivers it to a Bayer color sensor, while the second channel directs light from the near infrared (NIR) portion of the spectrum (approximately 740 nm to 1000 nm) to a monochrome, NIR-sensitive sensor.

Launch of 2K Triton Line Scan Camera Featuring IP67 Protection for Industrial Applications

Image The Triton line scan camera is the newest addition to the Triton series, featuring the “2K AMS Dragster DR-2k-7” monochrome line scan sensor with a 7 μm pixel size and a resolution of 2048 x 1 at a line rate of 60 kHz. Additional features such as IP67 protection, a robust M12 Ethernet GPIO connector, Power over Ethernet (PoE) and a temperature range (0°C to 55°C ambient), ensure a reliable operation in demanding industrial environments. Due to its lightweight, compact 29 mm x 29 mm size, the Triton line scan camera is smaller than most line scan cameras on the market and can easily fit in nearly any application. Read more ›

VisualApplets 3.2 Released

Image Silicon Software GmbH, manufacturer of frame grabbers and intelligent image processing solutions, has released version 3.2 of its VisualApplets graphical development environment, with a scalable operator for JPEG compression of grayscale and color images, and further developed the automation of the software by a Tcl console and additional features.
The JPEG application with its encoding performance of up to 7.2 GB/s on the current microEnable 5 marathon frame grabber series represents the most powerful market solution. By combining it with further image processing steps, high-quality color reconstructions from Bayer CFA cameras can be latency-free pre-connected.
