OXFORDSHIRE, England, Nov. 10, 2023 — Oxford Metrics has entered into an agreement to acquire machine vision software and systems developer Industrial Vision Systems Ltd. (IVS) in a deal worth £8.1 million ($9.9 million). IVS provides noncontact vision systems — including those supported by AI deep learning — for automated production processes for high-precision quality control, inspection, guidance, identification, measurement, tracking, and counting. Its product portfolio includes 3D and integrated vision systems, machine vision cameras, and sensors.

According to Imogen Moorhouse, CEO of Oxford Metrics, IVS’ offerings replace traditional inspection methods with “smart sensing” technology. Oxford Metrics, itself a developer of smart sensing software for motion measurement, supports customers in the life sciences, engineering, and virtual reality sectors, among others. Its portfolio includes the Vicon dynamic motion sensing platform.

Interpretation of an image of an object or scene through the use of optical noncontact sensing mechanisms for the purpose of obtaining information and/or controlling machines or processes.
embedded vision
Embedded vision refers to the integration of computer vision technologies into various embedded systems, devices, or machines. Computer vision involves teaching machines to interpret and understand visual information from the world, much like human vision. Embedded vision takes this concept and applies it to systems where the processing occurs locally within the device, as opposed to relying on external servers or cloud-based services. Key components of embedded vision systems include: ...
