Graphene-based biosensors are being used to develop better, cheaper, quicker, more accessible testing for the coronavirus that causes COVID-19.
A passive down-conversion imaging system created allows engineers to peer into the UV range while still viewing the visible spectrum for better machine vision results.
Light detection and ranging (LIDAR) scanning offers critical benefits to clients and engineers and makes projects more efficient and minimizes conflicts.
Automated systems still struggle to replicate human efficiency in some visual inspection applications, but there are ways to get machine systems up to speed. Automated machine vision systems can improve over time; see three ways machine vision is catching up.
4D vision takes some aspects from 2D machine vision and gives it more human elements and a boost with artificial intelligence (AI), which can help robots perform better in automation applications.
Deep-learning technique optimizes the arrangement of sensors on a robot’s body to ensure efficient operation. See video.
Remotely-operated aerial robots can operate in dangerous conditions, which make them ideal for certain oil and gas operations.
The Association for Advancing Automation (A3) announced four events to promote the use of machine vision and imaging technologies – three virtual conferences and an in-person trade show in 2022.
A University of Missouri engineer received a grant from the National Science Foundation to plan for large-scale manufacturing of an on-skin, wearable bioelectronic device.
MIT researchers have developed that design may enable miniature zoom lenses for drones, cellphones or night-vision goggles without moving or tilting.
