Computer Vision

Embedded Vision Technology

Computer vision is the use of digital processing and intelligent algorithms to interpret meaning from images or video. Computer vision has mainly been a field of academic research over the past several decades. Today, however, a major transformation is underway.

Shy Black Hole

Camera Shy Black Holes

In April astronomers announced what is quite possibly, the most extraordinary piece of scientific news ever. They had at last captured an image of the unobservable, always illusive, black hole – cosmic abyss so deep and dense that not even light can escape it.

Jupiter

The Juno Spacecraft

Jupiter may be one of the most recognizable sights in the night sky, but it still manages to surprise not only everyday people, but also the scientists that continue to study it. The Juno spacecraft successfully entered the orbit of Jupiter on July 4, 2016. In early 2018, it was able to get a glimpse […]

Lane Departure System

Lane Departure Vision Systems

Most vehicles sold today come with lane departure warning systems that alert drivers when their car is about to veer out of the lane and warns them to get back into the lane. That is the basic idea, but there are several versions of lane departure vision systems available now; including ones that react and […]

Farm Field

Machine Vision In The Agri-Food Industry

Recent estimates from the United Nations predict the world will need around 60 per cent more food by 2050. Precision farming will be vital in meeting this demand. The use of machine vision in the Agri-food industry will play a crucial role in the advances being made in precision farming.

Commercail vehicles

Commercial Vehicle Surveillance System

When it comes to monitoring large commercial vehicles, like a bus, limousine, or a semi-truck, a commercial vehicle surveillance system allows the driver to keep tabs on even the hardest-to-see areas. Truck camera systems are designed to provide both the driver and vehicle owner a complete view of the large vehicle, inside and out, from […]

Earth's Climate System

Earth’s Climate System

Global-scale observations of the Earth’s climate system (including temperature, precipitation, and other parameters) started in the mid-19th century. Modern observational techniques include both direct measurements at the ground and remote-sensing measurements from satellites. Ancient climates (paleoclimates) have been reconstructed as far back as hundreds of thousands of years by studying ice cores, tree rings, and […]

Barcode Sticker

Barcode Reading Technology

A barcode is a machine-readable pattern that is applied to products, packages and parts. Today, they are on virtually everything, even the labels that are applied to fruits and vegetables.  They contain data used for informational and marketing purposes, as well as for tracking products throughout their lifecycle.

Car Rearview Camera

Backup Camera System

As of May 2018, federal law has required that all new passenger cars, trucks, vans and other vehicles weighing less than 10,000 pounds be equipped with rearview monitoring technology. And in most cases that means rear-mounted video cameras.

3D Vision Robotics Is Changing The Face Of Bin-Picking

Whether you are in the business of assembly operation or a fulfillment house, automating the distribution of broad and varied mix of parts or SKU’s is no longer a challenge. 3D vision robotics is changing the face of bin-picking. It will improve both the accuracy and speed when it comes to sorting and identifying any […]
