3D Scanning
3D scanning is all about capturing real-world data and converting it into a 3D model. Until recently, 3D scanners were mainly used for industrial applications. 3D printing is becoming more common, especially for hobbyists, and the demand for 3D scanning devices that can transform real objects into 3D printable models is growing.
Automotive Cameras
In today’s automotive environment, there are a variety of in-car cameras. These automotive cameras provide solutions to different problems. Safety is the first priority, followed by security. In many of the vehicles being made today, you can find front, rear, backup, side and far-view cameras, along with rear-view, and surround view cameras. As a matter […]
3D Printing And Terahertz Radiation
Terahertz radiation is used in a wide variety of applications including airport security checks and material analysis in a lab.  The wavelength of this radiation is significantly larger than the wavelength of visible light, as it is in the millimeter range.  It also requires specialized techniques to manipulate the beams and get them into the […]
Understanding Computer Vision
Someone throws a ball. The other person catches it. Simple, right? No, not really. This is one of the most complex processes science has ever attempted to comprehend, let alone recreate. Inventing a machine to see like the human eye does is deceptively difficult. Not only because it’s hard to make computers to do it, […]
Photoelectric Sensors
Sometimes known as photo eyes, photoelectric sensors emit a beam of light that is used to detect the presence or absence of items and equipment, or changes in surface conditions.  When the emitted light is interrupted or reflected back by the object, the change in light patterns is measured by a receiver, thus the target […]
3D Printing
Although 3D printing is commonly thought of as a new ‘futuristic’ concept, it has actually been around for more than 30 years.
Machine Vision Technology
Machine vision technology, which allows computers to see and understand their surroundings, is experiencing a dramatic increase in usage.
LWIR (Long-Wave Infrared Imaging) Becomes More Accessible
We live in a day and age where new technologies are being brought to the market at what seems like lightening speed. One advancement leads to another, and then another. New products, based on emerging technologies are continuously being launched.   One such technological advance is long-wave infrared – LWIR – imaging, also known as thermal […]
Robotic Workers – E-Commerce in the 21st Century
Robots that offer point-to-point delivery are poised to become hot sellers for e-commerce companies and businesses that are looking to improve inventory control, order processing methods and labor efficiency to speed up operations. E-Commerce in the 21st century will be driven in large part, by robotic workers.
