Coming Soon - Piezoelectric Simulations with COMSOL Multiphysics

Piezoelectric materials are integral to the design of sensors, transducers, resonators, and actuators. This webinar introduces the simulation and modeling of such devices, which benefits the design process by enabling better understanding of the interactions between structural, piezoelectric, and conductive or dielectric materials.

Prepping Advanced Driver Assistance for Mainstream Vehicles

Forward-facing cameras, integrated with vehicle controls, are being used to recognize pedestrians, signs, and other cars and motorcycles. Automatic brake mechanisms — often connected to a combination of radar, camera, and sensors — can halt a vehicle as it approaches an object ahead. New mounted cameras have the ability to register road markings and keep drivers within their own lanes.

Microscope Camera

The Imaging Source (Charlotte, NC) 13-megapixel microscope camera is equipped with a distortion-free 5.3-mm (35-mm equivalent) auto-focus lens, allowing capture through the ocular, not just a region of interest. The camera can take the place of the ocular or can be screwed into the Cmount. Other features include: Sony Exmor CMOS, 1/2.5” sensor; full image circle capture; full HD at up to 30 FPS; focal length of 5.3 mm; and USB 3.0 interface.

Microscope Confocal Module

Andor Technology Ltd. (Belfast, Northern Ireland), an Oxford Instruments company, has announced the Revolution DSD2, a compact, laser-free confocal module. With the addition of Andor’s CMOS camera technology, the module delivers a large field of view and high dynamic range. The DSD2 uses a broadband white light source instead of lasers, enabling the image of any fluor by selection of filters.

Thermal Imaging Surveillance System

The SPYNEL-X wide-area surveillance system from HGH Infrared Systems (Cambridge, MA) captures real-time, full-panoramic images with up to 120 Mpix resolution. The technology features automatic intrusion detection and tracking capabilities for an unlimited number of targets on land, air, and sea through all types of inclement weather. The SPYNEL-X provides situational awareness and features an HD MWIR focal plane array. A single SPYNEL-X sensor can perform 24/7 early human intrusion alerts over a 16-km-diameter area.

Embedded System for Machine Vision

The EyeVBox II system from EVT (Karlsruhe, Germany) offers an Intel® AtomTM processor, four USB 2.0 interfaces at the back of the device, and two USB 2.0 interfaces at the front; interfaces, such as DVI-I and HDMI, are also available. Because the processors feature low-power consumption from the embedded or laptop area, the EyeVBox II does not need a fan and can be operated passively.
