Government of Canada Lends Financial Support to AV&R Vision & Robotics Inc.

The Government of Canada is providing financial assistance to AV&R Vision and Robotics in order to commercialise its 3-D automated visual inspection solution for machine parts in an international level.

The Honourable Denis Lebel, Minister of Transport, Infrastructure and Communities and Minister of the Economic Development Agency of Canada for the Regions of Quebec, announces that the firm AV&R Vision & Robotics Inc. has been granted financial assistance from the Government of Canada for the international commercialization of its three-dimensional automated visual inspection solution for machined parts.


"The Government of Canada is taking measures to promote the competitiveness and growth of the Canadian economy, and this support to AV&R Vision & Robotics is a clear example of that. With this assistance, the enterprise will be able to take the necessary steps to bring its state-of-the-art product to export markets," says Minister Lebel.

AV&R Vision & Robotics specializes in complex automation projects. The company offers solutions in two leading-edge sectors of activity, namely the two-dimensional automated visual inspection of part surfaces and the robotic finishing and machining of parts, which allows for the automated performance of such operations as deburring, profiling and polishing. The firm's latest solution, the result of extensive research and development, combines robotics with three-dimensional visual inspection. This new process will be commercialized first on foreign markets to enterprises operating in the aerospace industry.

This $350,000 in repayable financial assistance has been granted through Canada Economic Development's Business and Regional Growth program.

Ingenious mini camera with 5 MP and autofocus

Whether in a hand-held scanner, on a robot arm or in a photo booth: the tiny uEye XS makes sure that objects are always perfectly in focus. The tiny camera fits into any application. Discover now what the versatile 5 MP autofocus camera from IDS Imaging Development Systems is capable of! The uEye XS starter set is ideal for testing the camera. In addition to the compact USB2 camera, it includes a cable, a tripod adapter and a tripod. If the distance between the lens and the object is constantly changing, users benefit from industrial cameras with automatic focus. They eliminate the need for manual refocusing and ensure that objects or labels are always perfectly visible. However, there are more decisive factors for a good picture quality, such as natural colour reproduction and harmonious contrast. IDS has therefore equipped the uEye XS with many other practical automatic features familiar from consumer technology. This includes white balance, exposure and gain. As a result, it delivers the best possible result in every situation. If you want to fine-tune even more precisely, you can make the appropriate settings in the SDK (IDS Software Suite). Thanks to its small size and the proven USB2 interface, the uEye XS camera is suitable as a component in embedded vision systems. It is used, for example, in medical or security applications, in transport and logistics or in kiosk systems.
