An all-virtual audience selected HD Vision Systems as the winner of the Vision Startup Pitch Session held Nov. 11. The Heidelberg, Germany-based company now qualifies to take part in the VISION Startup World 2021, at the VISION conference scheduled for Oct. 5-7, 2021, which they will be able to exhibit at free of charge.

Six companies, selected by a jury from a pool of more than 30 submissions, participated in the pitch. Among them were HD Vision Systems, offering light-field and deep-learning-based machine vision; K Lens, offering AI-based sensor technology for customized production; preML GmbH, specializing in computer vision in the construction industry; Visometry, whose VisionLib technology provides augmented reality and computer vision tracking; SiaSearch, a company that delivers solutions for unsolved data handling; and Software Entwicklung Naser GmbH, a provider of AI-based use case automation.

The companies were each granted seven minutes to deliver a pitch, and then seven minutes for a question-and-answer segment. A virtual audience of approximately 100 individuals voted at the end of the presentations. HD Vision Systems was selected as the winner, with Visometry GmbH following in second, and K Lens coming in third.

“For us it is a great chance to become a valuable member of the image processing community, and we have already engaged with a potential customer after the session,” Benedikt Karolus, chief operating officer of HD Vision Systems, told Photonics Media.

HD Vision Systems presented and discussed its software- and AI-supplemented light-field scanning systems. The company’s flagship product, the LumiScanX, is a light-field scanner that relies on 13 1.2-MP cameras and enables machines to see in color and 3D. The system, Karolus said, is able to work in a variety of lighting conditions and can image shiny and reflective surfaces — a difficult task for many systems.

The system is also capable of enabling bin-picking, and can be taught new objects by uploading CAD data. It is able to perform quality checks and detect defects, Karolus said, in his presentation. 

With a higher depth of field than is commonly featured in other systems, the LumiScanX does not require structured light to achieve full functionality. Karolus noted its resiliency, in the scanner’s ability to image reflective surfaces in varying lighting conditions and environments.

Karolus said HD Vision Systems is now pursuing both customer and investor relationships.

machine vision
Machine vision, also known as computer vision or computer sight, refers to the technology that enables machines, typically computers, to interpret and understand visual information from the world, much like the human visual system. It involves the development and application of algorithms and systems that allow machines to acquire, process, analyze, and make decisions based on visual data. Key aspects of machine vision include: Image acquisition: Machine vision systems use various...
The processes in which luminous energy incident on the eye is perceived and evaluated.
light field
The term light field refers to the spatial distribution of light rays traveling in all directions through a given space. It includes information about the intensity and direction of light rays at every point in a scene. In the context of imaging and photography, the light field is a comprehensive description of the light entering a camera or other optical system. Key points about light field include: Directional information: Unlike traditional photographs that capture only the total light...
