Superior Monitoring in Industrial Processes

The latest industrial revolution, Industry 4.0, has prompted the automation and digitalization of manufacturing, providing higher yields at lower operation costs. Machine vision algorithms make it possible to identify issues, monitor processes, and inspect quality. Although optimization of these algorithms is constantly underway, the outcome is limited to the input image data provided by the imagery hardware. For example, in situations with high glare or extreme heat, the input from visible (VIS) and Near Infrared (NIR) cameras is extremely limited.

It is well-known that Short-Wave Infrared (SWIR) sensors can solve existing perception challenges and potentially unlock advanced sensing capabilities that were previously not possible. However, the high cost and limited availability of traditional InGaAs-based SWIR sensors create a significant barrier to mass industrial adoption.

SWIR Sensing for the Masses

TriEye’s innovative CMOS-based HD SWIR sensor provides enhanced, reliable image-data at a price fit for mass market scale. TriEye’s SWIR technology enables real-time remote material sensing, allowing machine vision algorithms to inspect, detect, and monitor issues that are not visible to the human eye. Furthermore, SWIR vision is unaffected by high temperature glare, enabling monitoring of welding and high temperature production lines, such as glass and metal.

In addition, the SWIR spectrum has a lower refractive coefficient than VIS or NIR spectrums, making light less scattered. This results in enhanced vision through common challenging visibility conditions such as dust, smoke, opaque surfaces, etc.

Remote Material Sensing Turns the Invisible, Visible

Every material has a unique spectral response defined by its chemical and physical characteristics; that response can be detected by comparing the relative intensities of carefully chosen spectral bands in a process called remote material sensing.
