Teledyne DALSA Unveils Possibility Hub

Possibility Hub - a content engine for sharing stories and knowledge about imaging technology

Waterloo, Canada May 5, 2014 - Today Teledyne DALSA unveiled its new Possibility Hub - a content engine for sharing stories and knowledge about imaging technology and its ability to empower human achievement. Continued advances in digital image sensor technology and data processing are driving new and ever more ambitious applications for imaging technology. The Possibility Hub will spotlight these innovations not only in traditional industrial applications, but in the physical and health sciences, arts and entertainment, as well as oceanographic, geographic, and interplanetary exploration.


Visitors to the Possibility Hub (http://possibility.teledynedalsa.com) can expect content that reflects where imaging technology is being deployed today but also for the future with stories that include traditional machine vision cameras re-purposed for blockbuster cinematography, smart vision technology enabling major installations in edutainment or shaping the future of digital imaging for non-visible applications.

"We believe the value of the Possibility Hub will resonate with stakeholders and the industry in general," says Kirk Petersen, Director of Marketing Communications. "We want to shine a spotlight on interesting imaging application stories regardless of where they come from."

ST Robotics Develops the Workspace Sentry for Collaborative Robotics

The ST Robotics Workspace Sentry robot and area safety system are based on a small module that sends an infrared beam across the workspace. If the user puts his hand (or any other object) in the workspace, the robot stops using programmable emergency deceleration. Each module has three beams at different angles and the distance a beam reaches is adjustable. Two or more modules can be daisy chained to watch a wider area. "A robot that is tuned to stop on impact may not be safe. Robots where the trip torque can be set at low thresholds are too slow for any practical industrial application. The best system is where the work area has proximity detectors so the robot stops before impact and that is the approach ST Robotics has taken," states President and CEO of ST Robotics David Sands.
