If you need to source or develop a new vision system, you’re immediately faced with a dilemma: can you source an off-the-shelf product that will
3D cameras for industrial applications have to operate in harsh production environments and reliably detect moving objects at speed, e.g. when the camera is mounted on a robot arm. Stable and latency-free data transmission over extended distances is essential – using GigE Vision, for example – as is straightforward integration.
One of the new and exciting areas that is showing a lot of promise for industrial applications is the use of Near and Short Wavelength Infrared (NIR and SWIR) light to gather information that is not visible to the human eye.
OLED (Organic LED) Mircodisplays from Sony® Semiconctur Solutions are cutting-edge small video display providing fast response, high-contrast image technology and precise color reproduction, developed for applications in AR/VR/MR, broadcasting, electronic view finders, industrial maintenance and medical. Evaluate the best OLED Microdisplay for your Vision Project.
Sony Semiconductor Solutions has strongly invested in R&D to overcome the inherent challenges of OLED micro-display technology. Exceptional results prove them right – like a long lifespan, stable brightness and the new burn-in avoiding Orbit technology.
Embedded Vision is an important driver of digitization and automation, it makes machines and devices autonomously by enabling them to see. Many companies and OEMs work with components and suppliers from the Far East. Historically, this geographic location allows the integration of image processing into machines and devices, cost-effectively, and efficiently. Axel Krepil, VP of Sales for FRAMOS in Munich, Germany, reports on the resulting challenges from a developers point of view – how manufacturers and customers can develop tailor-made vision, high quality, and low cost solutions directly with local partners; and, at the same time, shorten their products’ time-to-market.
Smart fridges, intelligent agricultural drones, or highly sensitive industrial robots – the working prototype and the first image present special challenges for developers embedding bare sensors into their devices. In this case, small sensor modules are ready for use and they can both simplify and accelerate the process from the initial concept, to a working prototype.
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.
