One of the motivations behind open hardware designs at Antmicro is to showcase the newest processing technologies and provide a starting point for discussion about customized products - with different form factors, interfaces and additional software - that Allied Vision can build for their customers and partners. The Jetson Nano from NVIDIA is a great example of such a new technology.
With growing applications in industrial 3D metrology, machine vision, automotive obstacle avoidance, security and security, and other digital imaging applications, the demand for optical and image sensors has also grown.
Deep learning is set to alter the machine vision landscape, enabling new applications and disrupting established markets. It’s never been easier to get started, but where do you begin? This article provides an easy-to-follow guide to building a deep learning inference system for less than $1000.
Sony's Pregius global shutter CMOS technology truly fulfills its promise: crisp, clear, distortion-free images at high speeds. regius offers significant performance gains, and with its newly-announced third generation, additional on-sensor features.
This white paper addresses the general need for laser beam profile analysis, describes laser beam analysis instruments, and provides an overview of laser applications, in particular for infrared wavelengths.
The importance of selecting the right optical filter for the application at hand cannot be overstated. Several different types of filters exist with the common goal of improving or changing the image of an object that’s under inspection, but each has its own set of benefits and limitations. This white paper provides a guideline on which filter you should use as it relates to the application you’re working in and the unique problems the different types can solve.
The acceptance and use of Gigabit Ethernet technology for industrial digital imaging applications continues to grow. The increased variety and capability of cameras to leverage this powerful interface, combined with planned updates to the AIA (Automated Imaging Association) GigE Vision® interface standards makes GigE Vision based imaging more robust and more ideal than ever for real-time machine vision applications.
Many key tasks in the manufacture of products, including inspection, orientation, identification, and assembly, require the use of visual techniques. Human vision and response, however, can be slow and tend to be error-prone either due to boredom or fatigue. Replacing human inspection with machine vision can go far in automating factory operation, but implementers need to carefully match machine vision options with application requirements.
