Not only could the thermal stereo camera theoretically tell the vehicle’s computer system to slow down upon detecting an object in the road in any lighting condition, it could also provide redundant distance data, along with the vehicle’s visible camera and radar systems, to ensure the vehicle makes the most appropriate decision for the circumstance.

Sensors Unlimited offers the compact SPS (SWIR Pocket Scope) field-ready viewer designed to provide high-resolution video within daytime and nighttime operations. It delivers distinct advantages over other viewer technologies, including visible (CMOS), thermal, and night vision systems.
Lasers are increasingly deployed in manufacturing applications, being pushed to higher output powers and smaller beam sizes to work faster and with higher precision. Determining the beam profile at the beam focus of these lasers is critical to verify and improve manufacturing product quality.

3-D machine vision systems “see,” analyze, and make decisions to meet production requirements of high accuracy, speed, and low maintenance while also being durable enough to withstand factory conditions.
Although noninvasive schlieren imaging can now deliver detailed images of highly dynamic processes, obtaining high-quality data requires choosing the best high-speed camera for the application and careful optimization of the optical setup.
This white paper explores the “false economy” provided by lower quality, lower cost optical components and its impact on the ultimate success or failure of research experiments and other ultrafast laser applications.
