Braintech Inc. (McLean, Va.) has certified its eVisionFactory Lite (eVF Lite) software to run on Sony Electronics new generation of smart cameras (XCI-SX100/XP), creating a compact vision system suitable for a broad spectrum of 2D and 3D robotic vision guidance applications in the automotive, pharmaceutical, food and beverage and general manufacturing industries.
The eVF Lite software coupled with Sony smart cameras allows OEMs, system integrators and manufacturers to combine a powerful industrial PC with a high-end CCD camera and Braintech s Vision Guided Robotics (VGR) software in a small form factor.
Later in the quarter, Braintech will enhance eVF Lite software with its SR3D technology, allowing the integration of multiple smart cameras to work together at the same time.
This combination represents the first time vision guidance users will be able to utilize 2D and 3D vision capabilities, as well as features such as auto calibration and auto testing without the need to install a full-blown computer on the factory floor, said Braintech CEO Rick Weidinger.
Added Michael McCausland, Vice President of Sony's Visual Imaging Products Group, "Bringing together our machine vision cameras with Braintech s vision guided robotics software is a powerful value proposition for the robotics industry. The combination will provide the market with a compact, state-of-the-art, flexible, reliable and cost-effective vision system for robot guidance."
