Drones are a popular and increasingly widespread product used by consumers as well as in a diversity of industrial, military and other applications. Historically fully under the control of human operators on the ground, they're becoming increasingly autonomous as the cameras built into them find use not only for capturing footage of the world around them but also in understanding and responding to their surroundings. Combining imaging with other sensing modalities can further bolster the robustness of this autonomy.
FoodPhone™ Case: Advanced Vision Technology Turns Regular Mobile Phones into Precise Food & Nutrition Analysis Devices Using AI, 3D and Hyperspectral Approaches
... former German chancellor Helmut Schmidt and fellow of the US Presidents Ford and Carter once said. Today "vision" is an essential component of the Smart Factory, robots, thinking machines, safety and autonomous home devices. The former chancellor would be delighted, that the doctor also opts for "vision" today. Modern medical treatments, such as the pain-free pill camera instead of a colonoscopy, are only made possible by the latest image-supported diagnostic and surgical systems.
CMOS image sensor technology has turned into the new normal. Well, not entirely... For high-end resolutions above 50 Megapixels, users still require CCD imagers to acquire high-resolution images. But now, CMOS sensors are available with high and super-high resolution, and bring numerous benefits for developers of demanding applications in terms of quality, speed, pricing, and time-to-market.

The implementation of imaging and vision solutions can be a tough road to embark on. Expert guidance is always helpful to find the right path from technology to development, and from implementation to production. Sarah Wu of FRAMOS is such an expert who is devoting most of her time every day to helping customers devise solutions from a single image sensor all the way to entire embedded vision systems.
Knowledge is more easily conveyed, exchanged, and retained with a high level of natural user interaction. E-learning and shared-working providers are developing novel interactive applications based on this principle. 3D image processing permits intuitive gesture control for the precise interaction between the user and the software. Currently, the depth perception required for this purpose is simple to integrate into mobile devices with small 3D modules for immersive user interactions, and an intuitive user experience. This article shows how only 3D enables this interaction and shows the advantages of modern 3D technology for developer and companies seeking for cutting-edge ways of collaboration.
Clearly, from an end user experience, a noisy image is not a good image. This is an issue made more difficult because of the high sensitivity of the eye for the smallest of deviations. Also, for algorithms, noise leads to more efforts in analysis and less accuracy. For a camera manufacturer, the noise contains a plethora of information about the sensor and the electronic driving it. Thus, the noise is a developer’s best friend and if carefully analyzed will lead to the best possible camera design and implicitly to the best possible image for a given sensor and electronic components.
Image sensors are available on the market in a very broad variety in type, size and performance for nearly all levels of applications and needs. From consumer sensors to industrial detectors and imagers dedicated to specific tasks, there is a huge number of devices available off-the-shelf. But there are six good reasons to have a deeper look, if a customized sensor helps to solve your imaging challenge and to achieve your vision objectives the best possible way.
The 10GigE standard provides all the advantages of GigE Vision, aside from being the leading interface for machine vision applications, with features like IP trust, different cabling possibilities and the easy synchronisation of multiple cameras. The just released 25GigE Vision successor includes all GigE benefits, but with a 2.5x increase in data and frame rates over 10GigE. The 25GigE interface used in the Emergent Vision’s BOLT and ACCEL cameras are the answer to the ever-increasing demands in resolution and speed, that drive industrial automation and cutting-edge consumer vision.
Often, lighting conditions and the type of object under inspection prevent vision systems from producing the best possible image. Excessive light, reflections, haze, or shiny materials can have a negative impact on the image quality; therefore, these conditions affect the results of both the image analysis and the inspection. Polarizing filters or sensors reduce the glare; reduce surface reflections; and, increase the clarity of structures, defects, and shapes.
Looking for a ready-to-go component to shorten your time to market? The IMX378 embedded vision module is great for devices
capturing human activities and for device ‘awareness’. It provides a better and more stable image and video streams in consumer video devices, VR / AR or MR systems, head cams, free-moving robots, drones, general AI / machine vision systems and outdoor applications.
