Linux-based smart camera with event-based sensor
The camera sensor reacts pixel-individually only to changes in motion, thus massively reducing redundant data
High-speed: events at sub-millisecond time scale. 10 000 fps equivalent
10 to 1 000 times less data processed in comparison to standard approaches
Operating in extreme lighting conditions > 120 dB wide dynamic range
The VisionCam EB revolutionizes machine vision. Instead of processing images with a certain frame rate using high bandwidths and power-hungry processors with a huge amount of redundant data, event-based machine vision takes a completely new approach. Data is only recorded from the moment an event is generated. Events just occur from moving parts of a video scene.
Each pixel decides for itself when it triggers an event and is evaluated directly on the sensor itself. This allows fastest motion analysis and classification. Motion information is also provided between otherwise common fixed frame rates of high-speed cameras. Previous high-speed applications can be replaced by only one smart camera!
Thanks to the high data reduction in the smart camera, sufficient computing power is present, in order to let an entire application run on the integrated Linux computer. The Smartcam is equipped with Dual-Core ARM Cortex-A15 CPU, Accelerator, Gbit/s Ethernet and digital IOs.
Simple configuration with ViewIT
Most cameras and sensors already include user software that allows image display and camera configuration. The VisionCam can be put into operation, but for special applications and image processing tasks, the software must first be developed. This takes a lot of time and development effort. ViewIT offers a faster solution.
ViewIT is a framework that allows image processing applications to be developed quickly and cost-effectively - without having to write a single line of code outside of image processing itself. A graphical user interface with intuitive functionality and easy-to-configure software modules allow any automation engineer to access machine vision.
Basic applications as counting, vibration control or kinematic monitoring will be an integral part of ViewIT. Regarding your individual application, IMAGO technologies can provide the algorithms used in the ViewIT environment.
Food & Beverage
For example, data acquisition for liquid dynamic analysis or condition monitoring. Fast process analysis like labeling or bottle closure systems.
For example, ejection control, high-speed counting, trajectory analysis for fast moving objects.
Packaging & Logistics
For example, high speed counting, code detection, real-time tracking and applications such as dimensional measurement are in focus.
For example, kinematic monitoring. Any deviation in the production cycles of your machine can be monitored in real-time.
For example, vibration movement, condition or kinematic monitoring.
Engineers and Technicians in charge to develop vision systems for series machines and devices. They should be familiar with basic vision algorithms to use machine vision libraries in the best way.
