Industriens første softwareudviklingskit til polariseret image sensor
Sony annoncerer de første detaljer om et kommende softwareudviklingskit (SDK) til maskinvision kameramoduler, der er bygget op omkring Sonys nye Pregius IMX250MZR polariserede image sensor (in english).Sony Europe’s Image Sensing Solutions has announced the industry’s first software development kit for camera modules based on Pregius IMX250MZR polarised image sensor.
Created to run on its new XCG-CP510 polarised module, the XPL-SDKW was previewed at the Vision show and is available immediately, enabling development teams to cut polarised machine vision application design time and cost significantly
The IMX250MZR sensor, the industry’s first to integrate polarisation functionality at the pixel level can filter light in 4 planes - 0°, 90°, 45°, and 135° - with pixels assigned a plane in a 2x2 calculation unit.
Sony’s Stephane Clauss explains:
- We’ve worked in close consultation with our customers to identify the key functions for the SDK, and develop its highly- optimised algorithms. And we will continue to add more over the next year.
- Depending on the development team and application, a standard polarised-camera application would typically take between 6 to 24 months. Through the SDK, and its image processing library, the dev time for the same application can be cut to around 6-12 weeks.
The use of polarised camera modules will prove vital in a wide range of applications and Sony has developed and validated software models for the major subset of these, including: weakness detection (eg for glass, PET and display manufacturing); inspection (eg for manufacturing / ITS / pharmaceuticals); scratch identification.
