Scalable platform
for high-resolution LiDar

The LeddarVu platform combines the benefits of a compact, modular architecture with performance, robustness and cost efficiency towards high resolution Lidar applications. Vu8, the first module based on the new platform, is a compact solid-state LiDar that provides highly accurate multi-target detection over eight independent segments. Detecting targets at up to 215m range and weighting only 75g. It uses a fixed laser light source, which increases the sensor’s robustness and cost-efficiency compared with any scanning LiDar solution.

Doppeltes Jubiläum bei Stemmer Imaging

Gleich zwei Jubiläen darf Stemmer Imaging dieser Tage feiern: Zum einen wurde die Firma am 1. Juli 1987 gegründet, d.h. man feiert den 30. Geburtstag. Daneben begeht auch ein besonderes Produkt seinen 20. Geburtstag, das 1997 erstmals vorgestellt wurde: Die Programmierbibliothek Common Vision Blox (CVB). „Mit über 80.000 installierten Bildverarbeitungsanlagen zählt CVB zu den meistgenutzten Software-Plattformen für die Bildverarbeitung“, so Martin Kersting (l.)

Unbekannte Gesichter

Dank Gesichtserkennungstechnologie identifiziert eine Security-Kamera Personen und sendet deren Namen an das Smartphone des Besitzers bzw. informiert den Nutzer über unbekannte Gesichter im Haus.

A $50,000 Camera you Already Own

Conventional cameras capture images using only three frequency bands (red, blue, green), while the full visual spectrum is a much richer representation that facilitates a wide range of additional and important applications. A new technology allows conventional cameras to increase their spectral resolution, capturing information over a wide range of wavelengths without the need for specialized equipment or controlled lighting.

Inspired by the Kinect

Although different 3D cameras and scanners have existed for some time, present solutions have been limited by several unwanted compromises. If you wanted high speed, you would get very low resolution and accuracy (e.g. Time-of-Flight cameras and existing stereo vision cameras, which despite being fast typically have resolution in the millimeter to centimeter range). If you wanted high resolution and accuracy, you would typically get a camera that was slow and expensive (e.g. the high accuracy scanners).

4. VDI-Fachkonferenz ‚Industrielle Bildverarbeitung‘

Vom 18. bis 19. Oktober veranstaltet der VDI die nunmehr 4. Fachkonferenz zum Thema ‚Industrielle Bildverarbeitung‘ im Kongresshaus Baden-Baden. In 19 Fachvorträgen werden u.a. die Schwerpunktthemen Automation in der Robotik mit 3D-Bildverarbeitung, Oberflächeninspektion und Bildverarbeitung in der Nahrungsmittelindustrie und intelligenten Logistik behandelt.

Low Noise SWIR-Camera with 400fps

C-Red 2 is an ultra high speed low noise camera designed for high resolution SWIR-imaging based on the Snake detector from Sofradir. The camera is capable of unprecedented performances up to 400fps with a read out noise below 30 electrons. To achieve these performances, it integrates a 640×512 InGaAs PIN Photodiode detector with 15m pixel pitch for high resolution, which embeds an electronic shutter with integration pulses shorter than 1μs. The camera is capable of windowing and multiple ROI, allowing faster image rate while maintaining a very low noise.
