The traffic and transport market
Offering 16 or 25 MPixel resolution monochrome or enhanced NIR CMOS sensors, the new Genie Nano-CXP cameras from Teledyne DALSA can deliver 80 fps at 25 Mpixel resolution.
The small form factor, robust build quality and wide operating temperatures are combined with an exceptional feature set at a highly competitive price point. They have been designed to work synergistically with the half-length Xtium-CXP frame grabber to minimise CPU usage and improve processing times.
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.
STEMMER IMAGING AG has signed an agreement with 3D machine vision camera company Zivid for the distribution of its market-leading Zivid One+ cameras and software throughout Europe. Providing human-like vision capabilities, the cameras meet the demands of a wide range of high performance robotics and industrial automation systems.
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.
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.
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.
