HTW Chur becomes the University of Applied Sciences of the Grisons

Image Since 3 September 2019, the name ‘HTW Chur’ has been a thing of the past. On this day, ‘University of Applied Sciences of the Grisons’ was launched in the presence of the President of the Cantonal Government and Head of the Department of Education, Culture and Environment Protection (EKUD), Dr Jon Domenic Parolini, as well as the President of the University Council, Brigitta M. Gadient. The objective of the University of Applied Sciences of the Grisons is to broaden the brand’s appeal and communicate its innovative and, in some cases, unique offering. Read more ›

VISION COMPONENTS – New standard for embedded vision

Image Vision Components will exhibit and give a talk at Embedded VISION Europe in Stuttgart, Germany. Company founder and CEO Michael Engel will speak about MIPI cameras as the new standard for embedded vision. Vision Components is the market leader, offering the widest available variety of MIPI camera boards, with image sensor resolutions ranging up to 13 MP. These high-end boards meet industrial standards and are available in large quantities at consumer prices.
The showcase will include MIPI boards that connect to various CPU boards from Raspberry Pi, NVIDIA, and other manufacturers. Attendees will also be able to find out all about fully integrated embedded vision systems. Read more ›

Increasing Vision Performance by Preprocessing on the Frame Grabber

Image Today’s cutting edge machine vision and video monitoring applications are taking on much more difficult requirements than ever before, such as identifying a small number of cancer cells in a patient’s blood and tracking which items customers leave a store with so their accounts can be charged without having to check out. Camera manufacturers are addressing these applications with sensors that offer dramatic increases in image quality and frames per second. Vision interface standards have kept pace by offering higher connection bit rates such the new CoaXPress 2.0 standard which offers data rates up to 12.5 Gigabits per second (Gbps).

Neuronal Networks (CNN) on FPGAs in Industrial Applications

Image If tasks can be solved exclusively, more easily or with better results with deep learning, this displaces classical image processing – especially with complicated variables such as reflective surfaces, poorly illuminated environments, varying lighting or moving objects.
With machine vision’s special conditions surrounding rapid execution (inference) of CNNs with very low latencies, are the various processor technologies equally well suited for it? High bandwidth, low heat output, and long-term availability are in demand, along with speed and real-time demands. How can you save resources without reducing the quality of classification.
