The ready-to-integrate processing block for Sony’s 3rd generation CMOS Global Shutter image sensors equipped with the SLVS-EC interface accelerates the time-to-market and improves performance for vision development on XILINX FPGAs.
Evolution has provided mankind with two eyes. By doing so, only now can we see in three dimensions and recognize forms, outlines, and estimate distances. However, what is quite natural for us, is a complex task in industrial image processing. So, how exactly are 3D images created and which technologies can help with their implementation in order to teach machines to see and think?
The next level of vision technology is turning machines into smart partners - Innovative embedded applications in industry and everyday life benefit from the combination of 3D technology and Artificial Intelligence.
Selection of a sensor based on its performance is key for imaging engineers. If the chosen sensor looks right for a specific application, the next step is to evaluate that sensor to make sure it is indeed the correct choice. FRAMOS has several options available to evaluate sensors for individual applications.
In 2014, Sony was forced to execute on the EOL of its widely successful CCD product line due to a raw material shortage. They could have simply passed on all associated cost and risks, but they decided to extend their EOL process by a full 10 years and aligned customers with a non-committal forecast. They didn’t have to do that.
Describing 5 applications that utilize the line scan cameras abilities to improve imaging
OLEDs are cutting-edge technology for video displays. These displays are paper thin, exhibit high brightness, operate at lower power, and are made from a solid Si-wafer substrate. How does this technology work, what are the advantages and which applications benefit?
A camera without a lens produces no image; at best, it creates a grey and snowy artifact. The choice of the right lens is one of the most important selection criteria.
Stereo cameras perceive the world in a manner similar to humans; this similarity allows machines using stereo technology to perform and interact like human partners
Having a good partner who understands your application and is near by can be a godsend, leading you down the correct path while giving you advice that is specific to your challenges.
Depth Technology is becoming well established in Human Machine Interaction (HMI) and improves the intuitive interaction of humans and machines via real-time gesture detection. In addition, Depth Technology is proving itself in the more traditional fields of industrial automation, 3D-sensing machines, and inspection tasks.
One of the main objectives for visual image processing in production automation and industrial inspection is to achieve maximum data throughput. The increase in resolutions and higher frame rates on the sensor side produce a high volume of data for transmission.
