Calculating Lens Resolution with Precision
Calculating Lens Resolution with Precision
There are many different ways to judge the performance of a lens, depending on the application: weight, size, distortion, transmission, and resolution. Of these characteristics, resolution is often the primary cost driver for lenses, with higher-resolution lenses tending to cost more than lower-resolution ones.

Robot-Based Bin Picking Set to Transform Manufacturing Sector
Robot-Based Bin Picking Set to Transform Manufacturing Sector
As the Fourth Industrial Revolution nears, companies all over the world will need to prepare for the immense changes coming their way. Machine vision, used in combination with artificial intelligence and deep learning, strives to make manufacturing systems more productive than ever. This is resulting in a greater focus toward robot-based bin picking. High-level collision detection and path planning allow robots to move independently without any human intervention. High-quality structured light projection creates a detailed 3D map of points so that the system can accurately identify the location and orientation of the parts in the bin.

Google to Present End-to-End System for Immersive Light Field Video
Google to Present End-to-End System for Immersive Light Field Video
Google will demonstrate a system for capturing, reconstructing, compressing, and rendering high-quality immersive light field video, at bandwidths low enough to be streamed over regular Wi-Fi, at the SIGGRAPH 2020 virtual conference. In the new system, wide field-of-view scenes can be recorded and played back with the ability to move around within the video after it has been captured.

Self-Driving Cars That Recognize Free Space Can Better Detect Objects
Self-driving vehicles use 3D data from lidar to represent objects as a point cloud and then try to match those point clouds to a library of 3D representations of objects. The problem with that, according to Peiyn Hu, a Ph.D. student in CMU’s Robotics Institute, is that the 3D data from the vehicle’s lidar isn’t exactly 3D — the sensor can’t see the occluded parts of an object, and current algorithms don’t reason about such occlusions.
