From small sensor modules to artificial intelligence - there are different technologies and image processing algorithms to allows drones to see. Each application has different requirements for the vision system and is dependent on the available space within the drone and the required image quality. Dr. Frederik Schönebeck of FRAMOS spoke at the VDI conference on "Civil Drones in Industrial Use" and described the criteria for applications in mapping, object recognition and navigation as well as the relevance of artificial intelligence for drones.
The latest generation of image sensors offers a high resolution of up to 50 megapixels, fast frame rates of over 300 fps, a greater bit depth and a high dynamic range. The higher volumes of data associated with these image sensors can only be transferred through a significant bandwidth increase. 10GigE is the answer to the demands of the vision industry for high speed data transfer. Its the perfect candidate for Applications in Broadcasting, Science, Telecommunications, Data communication, Industry with fast-moving items, Entertainment, Sports and Military.
