IDS is a leading manufacturer of digital industrial cameras with USB or GigE interface along with 3D-cameras featuring various sensors and variants. With the vision app-based cameras IDS NXT and Adaptive Robot Vision solutions we open up new dimensions in image processing.

Vision technology as machine eye in the smart factory of Industry 4.0

Watch our webinar:

With IDS NXT we have created a platform for a new generation of industrial vision systems. It is freely programmable and extremely versatile through the use of apps. This results in flexible complete systems that can be used to implement all steps of vision solutions - image acquisition, analysis and processing or control of industrial production machines. 

Artificial intelligence (AI) opens up new fields of application for camera technology and image processing. IDS NXT ocean — the easy-to-use complete AI system — makes it possible to solve tasks in which rule-based image processing reaches its limits - without any programming effort. Thanks to the cloud software IDS NXT lighthouse, even non-specialists can train an AI classifier with their own image data. Hardware, software, infrastructure, knowledge and support come from one source.

Automation with 3D-vision

3D-image-processing is the future of robot vision. Our Ensenso 3D-cameras convince through precision, speed and economy. In combination with the easily configurable, adaptive robot controller Mikado ARC (Adaptive Robot Control), a complete 3D-robot-vision-solution is created. 

From Obersulm to the world

Since its foundation in 1997 as two-man company, IDS has developed into an independent, ISO-certified family-business with more than 330 employees. The headquarters in Obersulm, Germany, is both a development site and a production site. With subsidiaries in the USA, Japan, South Korea and the UK as well as offices in Europe and Asia IDS is internationally represented. IDS cameras are developed exclusively in Germany, produced in a resource-saving manner and sold worldwide. It's so easy!
