Ophthalmology Imaging: The Importance of Color Reproduction

Lumenera recently partnered with an ophthalmology diagnostic device manufacturer that required a camera for integration into its product. The goal was to obtain sharp retinal fundus images with accurate color reproduction for documentation, sharing, and storage of their results. A date stamp was also needed for later review and diagnosis.

Rugged IP-Based Video Surveillance System Keeps Taipei Trains Moving

Averaging 1.6 million passengers per day, the Taipei Metro, also known as the Taipei Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) system, is one of the busiest transportation systems in Asia and has become an important driver for business and lifestyle in Taiwan. To ensure smooth and reliable operations and keep a watchful eye on the security and safety of riders, a CCTV-based onboard video surveillance system has been in place on a number of Taipei Metro carriages since 2010. The system makes it possible for train drivers to access live video images of critical areas, and video recordings are also available for later review and analysis.

Imaging Technology Enables 3D Monitoring for Surveillance and Missile Defense

A new imaging technology can quickly give users accurate three-dimensional depictions of objects being tracked, whether they are incoming missiles or the faces of suspects in a crowd. The technology, being developed by Visidyne of Burlington, MA, has numerous applications beyond missile defense. The Missile Defense Agency (MDA) originally funded the company through a 2003 Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II contract.

Real-Time Web-Based Image Distribution Using an Airborne GPS/Inertial Image Server

The use of geo-referenced imagery across the Internet is becoming prevalent thanks to the development of Web-based location servers such as Google Earth, TerraServer, and Yahoo Local. But users of these services are continually asking for more timely high-resolution data. Civil agencies such as firefighters, search and rescue teams, law enforcement, 911 emergency operations, border patrol operations, traffic monitoring systems, and geological survey crews — as well as the military — could benefit from a near-real-time, Web-based geospatial visualization capability.

Creating an Automated Brake Inspection System with Machine Vision

A Tier 1 automotive supplier of brake drum assemblies with customers here and abroad has tried a number of different vision systems for brake drum assembly inspection, but have had very limited success. The main problem with the previous systems was their dependence on using pattern matching, which proved inadequate in handling the wide variations and complexities in the assemblies.
