My understanding is that professional level three-chip cameras are great for high quality requirements, but may be too expensive for most embedded imaging applications. They are worth considering, though, to determine if the resulting quality difference is worth it.
Then there are special cameras mounted on constantly moving platforms -- satellites or aircraft -- that use a 'pushbroom' array of sensors instead of a matrix on a chip, to continuously image a ribbon path over a planet's surface. (Studied such for my Space Systems Engineering Masters degree).
Ah, I should close my chatting at this time. Thank you, all.
Truchard will be presented the award at the 2014 Golden Mousetrap Awards ceremony during the co-located events Pacific Design & Manufacturing, MD&M West, WestPack, PLASTEC West, Electronics West, ATX West, and AeroCon.
In a bid to boost the viability of lithium-based electric car batteries, a team at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory has developed a chemistry that could possibly double an EV’s driving range while cutting its battery cost in half.
For industrial control applications, or even a simple assembly line, that machine can go almost 24/7 without a break. But what happens when the task is a little more complex? That’s where the “smart” machine would come in. The smart machine is one that has some simple (or complex in some cases) processing capability to be able to adapt to changing conditions. Such machines are suited for a host of applications, including automotive, aerospace, defense, medical, computers and electronics, telecommunications, consumer goods, and so on. This discussion will examine what’s possible with smart machines, and what tradeoffs need to be made to implement such a solution.
