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.
Vision Components achieves outstanding clock rates, for example 88fps at resolutions up to 3.2MP or 170fps at 1.6MP. In addition, all VCnanoZ camera models are optionally available with application-specific LED lighting integrated in the standard housing.
The latest embedded laser profiler is also on exhibit. Vision Components’ proprietary ambient light suppression technology enables measurements under up to 100,000 lux with this product. The 3D laser scanner contains a Xilinx Zynq module, a system on chip (SoC) with an FPGA and a high-performance ARM processor.
The FPGA handles all calculation of 3D data. The ARM processor clocked at 2 x 866MHz can be freely programmed for other application-specific tasks such as gray value analysis. This enables additional 2D inspection tasks to be performed with just the one system. The company also demonstrates vehicle make and model recognition based on deep learning algorithms. It is suitable as a standalone solution or can be used in combination with the Carrida license plate recognition (ALPR) software in order to increase accuracy.
This tool has a wide range of possible applications in access control, traffic monitoring, and smart city matters.
Vision Components has a second booth (#3-764) dedicated exclusively to its new MIPI camera modules for use with various common CPU boards.
