Sony Europe’s XCG-CP510 polarised camera and its software development kit has been named by French journal Mesures among the year’s best vision and automation innovations.
The award was received by Arnaud Destruels of Sony Europe’s Image Sensing Solutions division at a ceremony held by Mesures at the Fieec in Paris, with Sony receiving a Special Mention in the Vision category, placing it as one of the best two vision technologies from the past year.
The XCG-CP510 is the first in a new series of polarised vision cameras from Sony. By combining Sony’s IMX250MZR/MYR on-chip quad-filter polariser with Sony ISS’s engineering prowess in developing vision modules the XCG-CP510 delivers images that eliminates glare, and highlights issues such as stress and fractures for manufacturing.
Sony has also uniquely coupled this with a software development kit that cuts average development time from between six and 24 months to just six to 12 weeks (depending on the application / team).
