Science of Light

NIR-multi-band light classification demo: Classification of rubber, glass, and plastic with eight wavelength lights with one trigger.

CCS has been offering innovative lighting solutions for 30 years now, increasingly also in Europe. CCS Europe N.V. was founded in 2004 in Belgium as a first European subsidiary, and later Effilux and Gardasoft joined CCS group. inVISION spoke to Daiki Sakamoto, Director of CCS Inc., about the company’s history and plans for the future.

Individually Characterized Lenses

Image 1 I Theia's calibrated lenses are individually characterized and calibrated at the factory to provide a rich array of data sets, e.g. the calibration curve plots the focus motor position versus zoom motor position for best focus at a given object distance.

Theia Technologies‘ individually calibrated lenses provide lens-specific optical performance data to enhance image processing and improve image quality. The calibrated lenses with motorized zoom and focus simplify camera setup in applications that have variable camera positions and object distances, enhancing object resolution in dynamic environments and applications.

Measuring the whole Audi e-tron BIW in a Narrow Space

With the Nexos 4.0 software Audi Sports was able to measure both sides of the e-tron BIW in a narrow space, with one robot, one sensor, and one turntable.

Audi Sport faced a challenging problem. The typical cells to measure the complete BIW (body in white) of cars are double cells, meaning double the cost and double the complexity. The company needed a simpler, more cost-effective and more robust solution. This came from Eleven Dynamics with the Nexos 4.0 software.

3D Inspection in Fuel Cell Paste Printing

Wickon Hightech has developed an optical inspection system that allows thick film processes in fuel cell production to be inspected in three dimensions in the wet state for the first time. With a dual-track setup, integrable into fast automation lines, the system achieves 3D inspection rates of two seconds per track.

Cowhide Inspection

Automatic optical inspection (AOI) of natural marks on genuine leather is finally available to be used in production. In the past, the extremely varied appearance of natural marks combined with the difficulty of judging the resulting quality zones, made it impossible to use objective and reliable AOI in the leather industry. This has changed with a new machine vision solution by Dr. Schenk. The solution was recently successfully introduced in a German premium car manufacturer’s production line.

Mobile Robotics

The edge AI computing system EAC-5000 is ideal for in-vehicle computing, robotic control, machine vision, intelligent video analytics, mobile robots, and any embedded AI applications.

The edge AI computing system EAC-5000 of Vecow is powered by the Nvidia Jetson AGX Orin platform. The compact embedded PC is rugged in design and supports high compute density with I/O flexibility for advanced edge AI applications in harsh environments.

MIPI for Vision

MIPI Alliance Mobile System Diagram

To keep MIPI CSI-2 at the center of future applications, the MIPI Alliance is exploring key emerging machine vision use cases and considerations. The following article explains how the recent major update of CSI-2, version 4.0 helps to achieve these goals.

Telecentric Zoom Lens

Opto Engineering will release the new TCZEL telecentric lenses series that integrates two liquid lenses whose synergy allows to control both: magnification and working distance. inVISION spoke with Francesco Mondadori, product manager at Opto Engineering, about the new optics series.
