New machine vision tech improves high-speed counting, tracking

New event-based machine vision technology offers increased productivity and equipment monitoring in industrial uses. Enhancements in the product line include ultra-high-speed counting, real-time tracking, man/machine teaming and vibration monitoring for predictive maintenance.

From Prophesee SA, the products include the Onboard reference system, which provides guidance for developers to implement the manufacturer’s neuromorphic vision technology. Features include performance and accuracy specifications for new use cases. This includes area monitoring, high-speed counting, vibration measurement and real-time arc-welding tracking. Adding the company’s event-based vision technology helps save computational power, memory and energy.

Benefits of installing the solutions in packaging lines and other manufacturing applications include accelerating quality assessment on production lines; improving throughput, yield and overall productivity; positioning, sensing and movement guidance for robots to enable better human collaboration. Additionally, the products facilitate improved equipment monitoring for predictive maintenance and reduced machine downtime via high-frequency vibration measurement.
