Sensing Technology for the Next Generation of Machine Vision Systems

Imaging and Machine Vision Europe digests Albert Theuwissen talk at EMVA-organised European Machine Vision Forum in Vienna, Austria on September 7, 2017. What new image sensor technology is being developed for the next generation of vision systems?

Some of the statements from the presentation and forum discussions:
  • Stacked sensor is a major innovation to drive new features
  • As other companies and foundries master the stacking process, the Sony early start advantage erodes
  • Sony 3-layer stacking is an attempt to keep the technology gap between it and the competition
  • Dietmar Ley, CEO of Basler, says that the CMOS sensors in industrial cameras now give excellent image quality and that only incremental changes are expected for machine vision
  • Other advances in image sensors mentioned during the panel discussion included better ToF sensors and wider spectral range sensors
