MIPI camera boards with sensor variety
Vision Components adapts its wide range of machine vision image sensors on MIPI camera modules and integrates non-native MIPI sensors such as Sony Pregius IMX250 and IMX252. The portfolio currently comprises ten sensors with resolutions up to 20 MP and is being continuously expanded. It includes global shutter, rolling shutter, and global reset shutter versions.
New embedded vision approaches the LogiMAT exhibition
Vision Components has announced that it will present its latest embedded vision systems and MIPI camera modules at the 2020 LogiMAT trade fair in Stuttgart, Germany. Co-exhibitor Retenua will demonstrate its advanced driver assistance system (ADAS) for forklift trucks, which is based on an intelligent VC stereo camera.
Range of MIPI camera modules and quad-core embedded vision
At the ITE2019 show in Yokohama, Japan, Vision Components presented its extended range of high-end camera modules with a MIPI CSI-2 interface: now offering ten different image sensors with resolutions up to 13 MP.
MIPI camera modules at the iREX2019 robotics show
At the iREX2019, Vision Components will present camera boards and embedded vision systems for robotic vision applications such as robot guidance, bin picking, and code reading. The German vision experts the global market for camera modules with a MIPI CSI-2 interface, now offering ten different image sensors with resolutions up to 13 MP.
Fully integrated embedded vision driver-assistance system
Swedish startup Retenua has developed the first fully integrated advanced driver-assistance system (ADAS) for detecting people around industrial vehicles and forklifts, basing it on a Vision Components embedded camera. This is also the first system trained to detect reflective workwear and using an NIR flash.
Shielded MIPI cables for high data rates
Vision Components supplies its MIPI camera modules with a shielded FPC (flexible printed circuit) cable, which is primarily designed for the MIPI modules and enables high data transfer rates. The company uses the stalwart MIPI CSI-2 camera interface and the Raspberry Pi connector schema.
Embedded cameras with LED ring light
Image processing systems with integrated LED ring lights and flash controllers in a compact camera housing are now available from Vision Components. Many applications can therefore be implemented with VCnanoZ embedded vision systems without any additional components. These systems are suited for code reading, pick & place applications, completeness control, and shape inspection.
High-end OEM cameras at Embedded Vision Summit
It has been announced that Vision Components will present its portfolio of OEM cameras at the Embedded Vision Summit in Santa Clara, California. The brand-new line of ultracompact MIPI camera boards is designed for applications with many cameras such as autonomous driving, UAVs, Smart City, medical technology, and laboratory automation.
Embedded vision and MIPI cameras at ISC West
At ISC West this year, Vision Components will present embedded solutions for automatic license plate recognition (ALPR) and security applications, as well as MIPI camera modules. The smart cameras with powerful processors manage complex image processing routines. This makes for compact, low-maintenance autonomous solutions with no need for external computer support.
Vision systems with wide variety of CMOS sensors
New software and hardware products for vision OEMs from Vision Components, will be presented at two booths at the 2019 embedded world exhibition in Nuremberg, Germany. At the main booth (#2-444), everything revolves around VC Z series embedded vision systems, which are now available with an even wider variety of CMOS sensors, including several Sony Pregius sensors.
Optimised visibility in 3D laser scanning
The proprietary ambient light suppression technology from Vision Components enables measurements with laser profilers under up to 100,000 lux. This is an all-new feature for the intelligent VCnano3D-Z laser profilers, enabling them to achieve best-in-class performance. The high ambient light immunity results from a high-intensity laser, combined with extremely short exposure times.
Embedded cameras with Sony Pregius image sensors
Embedded systems with high-performance CMOS sensors from Vision Components, reportedly deliver high frame rates. The manufacturer has now integrated another new Sony Pregius image sensor into VC Z series cameras. The Sony Pregius IMX392 is a 1/2.3" sensor featuring a 1920 by 1200px resolution.
Embedded vision in packaging applications
Vision Components has offered a comprehensive hardware and software portfolio for OEMs manufacturing image processing technology for the packaging industry. The company’s embedded vision systems autonomously perform inspection tasks with different degrees of complexity, for instance, code reading, fill level detection, completeness checks, printed image control, label inspection, as well as detection and categorisation in sorting facilities...
