Explaining is one of Dr. Frederik Schönebeck's strengths. As Field Application Engineer (FAE) at FRAMOS, he helps customers to make optimum use of image processing and create "seeing" products. It is his job to always have an answer, to point out technical connections and to be the voice between hardware and software development. In his daily work, he helps companies from various industries in equipping their machines and devices with vision.
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.
For accurate and instantaneous sub-nanometer interferometric measurements, even in the presence of vibration and motion, 4D Technology developed a micro-polarizer array. But now, the company is excited about the high performance and low cost of Sony's IMX250 micro-polarizer sensor. 4D Technology’s main target applications demonstrate how on-chip polarization can improve and deepen imaging results.
