VISION, the world’s leading machine vision trade fair, was held November 6-8, 2018 at Stuttgart Messe in Stuttgart, Germany.

A marketplace for component manufacturers, and a platform for system suppliers and integrators, VISION is where OEMs, mechanical engineering companies and system houses learn about the latest innovations from the world of machine vision components, and where they initiate their investments. In total, there were 440 exhibitors from 31 countries and 10,000 visitors from 56 countries—including Integrys engineering manager Eric Buckley.

VISION 2018 was infused with several fascinating developing themes in the machine vision field, including three that Eric found particularly germane to Integrys and the companies we work with:

  • Deep/machine learning
  • 3D imaging
  • Polarization sensors and cameras

Deep learning

Deep learning is part of broader family of machine learning methods based on learning data representations, as opposed to task-specific algorithms. And two Integrys suppliers, Connect Tech and Matrox Imaging made their presence felt in this realm at VISION 2018.

At the Connect Tech/Samtec booth there was action aplenty as visitors caught up with Connect Tech’s show-stopping embedded NVIDIA Jetson solutions for machine vision and deep learning. Connect Tech is NVIDIA’s largest Jetson ecosystem partner and a leading provider of Jetson carrier products. It also does custom carrier designs.

Meanwhile, at the Matrox booth, the focus was on the newest version of Matrox Design Assistant flowchart-based software, including new tools for image classification using deep learning and image registration using photometric stereo. These tools enable inspection and OCR of hard-to-see text. Matrox also did a fascinating deep learning demo in which dental floss near the cutter of the container was inspected to determine whether or not its appearance is appropriate.

3D imaging

There are a host of 3D sensor applications, some of which are industrial, such as pick and place, palletizing/de-palletizing, and warehouse robots, and others of which are more consumer oriented, such as drones, people counting or patient monitoring. Of note at the event was Photoneo’s MotionCam-3D, for which Photoneo won the VISION Award 2018 at the Exhibitors’ Night. It’s the company’s flagship based on Photoneo’s own patented technology called Parallel Structured Light, implemented by a custom CMOS image sensor. MotionCam-3D is the best close and mid-range 3D camera to date for sensing in rapid motion.

At the fair, Integrys supplier Hikvision, the world’s leading manufacturer of robust, high-quality video surveillance products, introduced a new member of their 3D laser scan camera product family, while Zivid Labs, a market-leading provider of 3D machine vision cameras and software for next generation robotics and industrial automation systems, demonstrated why its Zivid One and Zivid One Plus products are regarded as the world’s most accurate real-time 3D cameras.

Polarization sensors and cameras

Polarization imaging can be used to detect stress or defects in manufacturing of materials such as plastic, glass and carbon fiber, as it can be used to uncover hidden material properties to better perform inspection and classification in industrial applications.

Integrys supplier Imperx develops and manufactures advanced, rugged imaging products qualified to MIL-STD 810-G for shock and vibration. Among them is their renowned Cheetah line of cameras, and at the fair Imperx illustrated the polarization features of its 5MP Cheetah camera, which helps eliminate glare from reflective surfaces and can help visualize internal tension/stress within transparent materials. Featuring advanced Sony Pregius IMX250 sensors with global shutter technology, the camera has excellent sensitivity and exceptional dynamic range with fast frame rates in a small form factor, making it ideal for a wide variety of uses in the world of machine vision.

JAI, another Integrys supplier, launched a new polarization area scan camera in the Go Series. The new model (GO-5100MP-USB) is built around Sony’s IMX250MZR CMOS image sensor. With 5.1-megapixel resolution and an innovative 4-way polarized filter design it is ideal for inspecting plastics, glass, and other shiny materials in industrial vision applications. JAI has a mono only USB3 interface of up to 74fps that supports multiple data output modes.

At VISION 2018 Baumer introduced polarization camera models to its CX series with GigE and USB 3.0 interface options. The cameras are based on the 5 MPixel IMX250MZR global shutter sensor from Sony, which has a polarization layer consisting of four polarization filters (0°, 90°, 45°, 135°) at the pixel level. Through an integrated evaluation algorithm and the Baumer GAPI SDK, it is possible to only output polarization information. Output formats, however, are not restricted to polarization angles.

JAI introduces new polarization camera in the Go Series. GO-5100MP-USB is ideal for plastics, glass, and other shiny materials

JAI has added a new model to its Go Series of small and versatile machine vision cameras. The GO-5100MP-USB is built around Sony’s IMX250MZR polarized CMOS image sensor, offering 5.1 megapixels of total resolution and an innovative 4-way polarized filter design creating a range of possibilities for imaging and analysis of objects and materials in industrial applications.GO-5000-USB-Polorization-Story

The camera features a full resolution of 2464 x 2056 pixels with a 2/3” optical format and pixel sizes of 3.45 µm x 3.45 µm. The polarization capabilities are derived from the sensor’s unique filter array, which consists of four separate polarizing filters – angled at 0°, 45°, 90°, and 135° – that have been arranged in a regular pattern across the sensor. Thus, each block of four pixels can be used as a calculation block to determine the angle and intensity of light reflecting from objects, as well as several other calculations.

The use of polarization filters can not only mitigate reflections and hot spots, particularly when inspecting plastics, glass, and other shiny materials, but can also enable analysis of material thickness, stress points, and other potential defects not detectable using standard machine vision techniques.

The GO-5100MP-USB is equipped with a USB3 Vision interface enabling it to provide full resolution, 8-bit output at up to 74 frames per second. 10-bit and 12-bit output is also supported.

Other camera features include both single-ROI and multi-ROI functions, shading compensation, and gamma correction. The main camera body is a compact 29 x 29 x 41.5 mm, with a lens mount supporting standard C-mount lenses. Like other Go Series cameras, it is built to high standards for shock (80G) and vibration (10G) to enable it to perform in industrial environments with an MTBF rating of more than 150,000 hours.

Preliminary samples of the camera are available now for customer evaluation and testing, with full production slated to begin in late Q3..

New GMS Product – Military Network Technology “HURRICANE” S1U401-SHS

Matrox Design Assistant 5.jpg

March of Military Network Technology Continues

The industry’s lighter, compact and ruggedized network solutions are also coming with more cyber protections.

As featured on the AFCEA website and in SIGNAL magazine

As the military, including the U.S. Army, works to update network command systems, size, weight, power and capability improvements are central, especially when paired with cybersecurity protections. The network improvements provide key flexibility and operations for tactical missions and command posts.
For the modern battlefield, the industry is aiming to offer technologies that are quick to set up, ruggedized and cyber protected. General Micro Systems Inc. recently released its Ultra-Compact 1U Rackmount Secure Storage Server, known as the “Hurricane.” The server uses Intel’s 22 core Xeon E5 v4 server central processing unit (CPU). The system is able to move data between drives, the CPU and Ethernet ports with a total bandwidth of 376 gigatransfers per second (GT/s), the company says. “[The Hurricane] has highest levels of security, encryption and crypto key control available,” posits Ben Sharfi, CEO and chief architect of General Micro Systems. “It’s simply the best of the best for rugged, space-constrained applications, and at a lower cost than many would pay for the just the server alone.”
The encrypted high-speed storage has removable encrypted media that enables exchange of classified material. And the redundant array of independent disks helps prevents data loss, Sharfi adds. “Should a drive or group of drives fail, data is protected, encrypted and most importantly, recoverable.”

In addition, Fidelis Cybersecurity and Pacific Star Communications (PacStar) have teamed up, pairing Fidelis’ Cybersecurity System with PacStar’s software and hardware, including PacStar’s 451 server module, 455 tactical convergence module, 400-Series routing and switching modules, and associated software. The companies claim that the paired technologies provide automated detection and response capabilities in a reduced size, weight and power form for secure military tactical networks.

According to Fidelis, the cybersecurity platform includes pre-positioned cyber sensors and deployable, so-called hunt mission kits. The technology is meant to protect in-theater communications and executive communications. The system is managed by PacStar’s IQ-Core software, a graphical user interface designed to provide configuration, management and troubleshooting assistance, PacStar said.

The interface allows visibility into the system for remote cyber defenders, allowing them to see real-time threats and use advanced analytics to support warfighters. The automated detection and validation of alerts also helps by offering incident response, the companies said.
