TriEye Raises $74m to Deploy Next-gen SWIR-based Autonomous Vision Systems

EMVA member and Israeli startup TriEye announced it has raised $74 million in a new round of financing to take automotive perception systems – the key for every highly automated vehicle – to the next level.
Despite the many sensors installed in advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) and autonomous vehicles (AVs), they remain vulnerable in darkness, dust, fog, and other adverse weather conditions. Improving the robustness of perception has become essential to safer driving and maintaining safe roads for other cars, cyclists, and pedestrians. Tel-Aviv-based TriEye claims its short-wave infrared (SWIR) sensing technology can solve low-visibility issues facing the automotive industry. Read more ›

Evolution in the press shop

Intelligent, camera-based tool protection in stamping and forming technology

Boosting efficiency through digitalisation – almost no branch of industry can evade it. Also operators of press shops are increasingly networking their production. But – regardless of whether it’s a single press or press lines – it’s not always necessary to replace the entire plant in order to stay up to date. Retrofitting existing lines, true to the principle of “sensible evolution instead of cost-intensive revolution”, is often the order of the day. With Visual Die Protection, Schuler Pressen GmbH from Göppingen offers a solution for avoiding expensive die damage and its consequential costs in stamping and forming technology – retrofittable for existing lines. Equipped with industrial cameras from IDS Imaging Development Systems GmbH and intelligent software, the production process can be monitored as required.  Read more ›

High performance cameras with powerful 40x autofocus-zoom

The Harrier 40x AF-Zoom Camera is fitted with a 2MP Sony CMOS sensor and offers real-time full HD 1080p – 60/30 fps or 720p – 60/30 fps video output. It’s compatible with all our Harrier camera interface boards, which can convert the camera’s LVDS output to video formats including 3G-SDI, HD-VLC, USB3 (UVC), HDMI and, coming soon, H.264 IP Ethernet and MIPI CSI-2.
Special features of this autofocus-zoom block camera include Digital Image Stabilization, Digital Noise Reduction (2D+3D), Privacy Mask Function, High Light Compensation, Intelligent Motion Detection, Defog Function and Day & Night mode (Infrared Cut filter Removal, ICR). Serial VISCA or Pelco-D/P Control Protocol are available to control the camera. Read more › 

3D Inline Surface Inspection with XPOSURE:PHOTOMETRY

Conventional 2D scanning methods cannot distinguish between pseudo defects – dirt on the surface of the manufactured part, for instance – and actual 3D defects such as scratches, ridges, spikes, pinholes or wrinkles. At the same time, existing 3D inspection methods are not able to handle high speeds, neither for single objects nor for high transport speeds of endless material.
xposure:photometry addresses this by combining very fast photometric stereo (PS) imaging and smart camera technology to highlight inline, actual small 3D defects on the object’s surface, while distinguishing them from pseudo defects. Read more ›

3D Electronics Inspection on a New Level: MultiPart and MultiPeak from AT

When it comes to making the quality control of components in the electronics industry even more reliable, precision for detecting the smallest defects has top priority. To optimize precisely this inspection process, AT – Automation Technology has equipped its 3D sensors with globally unique features, enabling a whole new level of inspection with its new C6 series. So,the days are over when the customer only had to use 3D point clouds for orientation. The crucial new feature here is MultiPart, which allows up to ten different features to be output simultaneously, regardless of pixel format or algorithm. Read more ›    

Teledyne DALSA
Falcon4-CLHS 11.2M camera engineered for high-performance imaging applications

Teledyne DALSA is pleased to announce that its Falcon4-CLHS M4480 camera, based on the Teledyne e2v Lince 11.2M monochrome sensor, is now in full production.

The new Falcon4-CLHS model delivers an easy-to-use CLHS interface camera that has been specifically engineered for industrial imaging applications requiring high-speed data transfer. This latest model can reach a frame rate of up to 609 fps in full 11.2 MP resolution, and multiple thousands of frames per second in partial scan mode. When using the sensor’s binning mode, it can reach a very large pixel full well capacity of over 160Ke.

Teledyne FLIR
Making 10GigE Machine Vision Reliable and Affordable – Including Multi-Camera Setups

Several vision system applications like fast moving inspection lines, semiconductor fabs, intelligent traffic systems, sports analytics and volumetric capture require high resolution, high FPS and transfer of data to deliver better outcomes. For vision system engineers looking to improve output using faster framerates and higher resolution machine vision cameras, upgrading from 1GigE to 10GigE is an obvious option. However, according to research from the AIA (Automated Imaging Association), adoption has been fairly slow.

New Helios™2+ Time-of-Flight Camera Featuring On-Camera High Dynamic Range and High-Speed Modes

LUCID Vision Labs is pleased to announce that the new Helios™2+ 3D Time-of-Flight (ToF) camera has entered series production.

Helios2+ is an advanced version of the Helios2 ToF camera offering two new on-camera depth processing modes: High Dynamic Range Mode (HDR) and High-Speed Mode. The HDR Mode combines multiple exposures in the phase domain to provide accurate depth information in high contrast, complex scenes, containing both high and low reflectivity objects. The High-Speed Mode enables depth perception using a single-phase measurement, allowing for faster acquisition speed and higher frame rates compatible with moving object perception. Read more ›
