Interview with Polarization camera Developers & Product Planner

Interview with Polarization camera Developers & Product Planner

Sony’s polarization cameras XCG-CP510 and SDK enable image processing of subjects, which was difficult to realize with conventional machine vision cameras. Here, I asked the developers about the many attractions hidden in this “polarization camera".The interview will provide answers to user questions on the following points. What is polarization? What is the mechanism of polarization cameras? What are the merits? What can they be used for?

Mapping drones – how do you deliver the best possible image

Mapping drones – how do you deliver the best possible image

Sony’s head of sales for Russia, Middle East and Africa, Gary Quinn, talks to Geoscan’s Vladislav Vasiliev about the imaging requirements of its new Gemini drone, which is able to capture 150 hectares in a single flight and deliver resolutions down to 3cm per pixel[АГ1] (altitude 141m - or at 1cm per pixel at 47m) – see figure 1.

How Kaspersky Antidrone is using vision systems to identify and prevent threats to vital infrastructure

How Kaspersky Antidrone is using vision systems to identify and prevent threats to vital infrastructure

Vision systems may hold the answer, with the global cybersecurity company Kaspersky having developed a system to tackle this problem using the Sony FCB-EV7520A, to create a drone detector and tracker. It helps organizations and property owners defend themselves from unauthorized trespassing by civilian drones.

Polarisation, ToF and SWIR: The inspection industry in 2021

Polarisation, ToF and SWIR: The inspection industry in 2021

Happy new year. Thank goodness 2020 is over and it’s a delight to be thinking to 2021, to a year where we can (post a widely rolled-out vaccine) meet up again.And with this in mind what should the industry be most excited about over the coming 12 months? For me, there are three key themes, more advanced sensor technologies, a closer interaction between software and hardware, and a move towards larger sensors. My top 5 for 2021 are:

How do on-chip polarisation sensors work?

How do on-chip polarisation sensors work?

Polarised cameras and SDKsHow do on-chip polarisation sensors work? What applications do they enable? And how to get applications created 4 times faster.Reflective glare can significantly hinder the accuracy and usability of an industrial camera. This is true in controlled visual inspection environments used for the quality-control analysis of components or packaging - where glare can hide a fault, and increase the chance of recalls.And it is especially true in outdoor applications, such as ITS, where glare caused by highly-variable, unpredictable lighting can not only slow down systems such as automated motorway tolling barriers - for example by not capturing a license plate - it can prevent enforcement cameras from working and therefore reduce the risk of getting caught when, for example, running a red light.
