Intelligent traffic systems rely on vision technology

The traffic and transport market

Intelligent traffic systems rely on vision technology for vehicle classification and ANPR in road pricing and speed enforcement applications. Advanced cameras are used to capture and analyse 2D and 3D data in infrastructure monitoring on railways and roads.

Polarisation camera with inbuilt calculations gives new inspection possibilities

31/10/2019

The new JAI-GO-5100MP-PGE polarisation camera enables analysis of material thickness, stress points, and other defects not observable using standard imaging techniques. Featuring Sony’s IMX250MZR polarised CMOS sensor this GigE Vision camera can also reduce the effects of reflections and hot spots from shiny materials such as plastics and glass. The unique on-board calculation of key parameters such as angle and degree of linear polarisation frees up host resources for other processing tasks.

Direct interfacing of smart 3D vision system with robots

28/08/2019

The use of small to medium-sized collaborative robots for factory automation applications is growing at a rapid rate. Many of these applications are pick-and-place, so the robots require machine vision to visualize the scene, process information to make control decisions and execute precision-based mechanical movements.

For safely rolling tyres

07/11/2016

Every day the lives of millions of people depend on intact tyres on cars and airplanes. The Carl Zeiss Optotechnik tyre inspection systems equipped with STEMMER IMAGING’s state-of-the-art machine vision components provide the maximum possible safety in this domain.

Industrial cameras improve track monitoring efficiency for London Underground

16/12/2015

STEMMER IMAGING has worked closely with London Underground to develop and deliver 104 industrial camera assemblies that are mounted directly onto passenger trains to provide image data on the condition of the wheel/rail interface and the track itself. By acquiring this data during normal timetable periods, more time is available during the 4-hour night closure period to maintain the network’s 1000 km of track, minimising any disruption to services and helping to make the new weekend extended operating times possible.
