Hori Wins AIA Award
Feb 2009
ToshiHori.jpgToshi Hori, president of GeviCam Inc. in Ann Arbor, Mich., was presented with the 2009 Automated Imaging Association’s annual Achievement Award during a ceremony held at the association’s 17th annual Business Conference in San Diego. The award honors one industry leader for outstanding contributions in promoting market acceptance of industrial and/or scientific imaging. Hori was nominated by AIA members and selected from a pool of candidates by its board of directors, who wished to recognize him for his technology innovations and his contributions to the machine vision and imaging industry. His inventions include the electronic shutter CCD camera for factory automation, progressive-scan interline-transfer CCD cameras, the original Channel Link camera and neural network-based smart cameras.

electronic shutter
A mechanical shutter that has had its timing escapement replaced with an electronic timing circuit. This circuit allows a wider range of exposure times, can be more accurate, and, placed in a circuit with a photoconductive cell, allows automatic sensing of shutter speeds.
machine vision
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.
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...
