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.
A deep Insight into Business Models based on Data, and How 3D Technology Helps to Create Innovative Business Cases in Disrupting Industries - Like Dr. Christopher Scheubel Showed at the Embedded Vision Summit in Santa Clara.
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.
