  • Adept Technology Awarded US Patents on Smart Cameras
Jul 2007
Adept Technology Inc. of Livermore, Calif., a provider of intelligent vision-guided robotics and global robotics services to markets including semiconductors and life sciences, today announced that the US Patent and Trademark Office has awarded the company three patents (Nos. 6,958,780, 6,988,008 and 7,174,224), on its Smart Camera systems. The patents cover the application of new Smart Cameras with robotics or motion mechanisms where the image processing is done within a digital camera instead of traditional PC-based systems, lowering the cost of vision adoption in assembly and material-handling manufacturing applications. Adept said it now owns more than a dozen patents covering the core technology for vision-guided robotics systems.

digital camera
A camera that converts a collected image into pixels that are black or white digital or shades of gray. The digital data may then be manipulated to enhance or otherwise modify the resulting viewed image.
The technology of generating and harnessing light and other forms of radiant energy whose quantum unit is the photon. The science includes light emission, transmission, deflection, amplification and detection by optical components and instruments, lasers and other light sources, fiber optics, electro-optical instrumentation, related hardware and electronics, and sophisticated systems. The range of applications of photonics extends from energy generation to detection to communications and...
The processes in which luminous energy incident on the eye is perceived and evaluated.
