Combination of Perception System, Perception Park’s unique hyperspectral data processing solution, with XIMEA’s impressively compact HSI cameras is a new milestone for accessibility of this technology

XIMEA, a progressive innovator of machine vision products and Perception Park, Hyperspectral data processing specialist, today announced their collaboration towards interoperability between Perception Park’s Hyperspectral Imaging (HSI) software and XIMEA’s miniature Hyperspectral USB3.0 camera product line. Exceptional cooperation between companies transcended the integration of camera and software, streamlining the success of this integration.

“Combination of Perception System, Perception Park’s unique hyperspectral data processing solution, with XIMEA’s impressively compact HSI cameras is a new milestone for accessibility of this technology. Simplicity of software and camera facilitates design and mass-implementation into user’s hyperspectral imaging applications” stated Manfred Pail, CFO at Perception Park on ximea.com: http://www.ximea.com/en/corporate-news/perception-park-hyperspectral

Perception Park’s Chemical Color Imaging (CCI) technology represents a new processing technology, which combines essential advantages of the basic technologies of chemical imaging and color imaging (Color image processing) and makes chemical material properties accessible to the broad machine vision community through new approaches to data processing. Dramatic simplifications in handling, as well as the opportunity for real-time processing of highly complex camera data, are the keys to an extensive industrial use of this technology. The abstraction of highly complex spectral information through chemical features makes handling of the cameras on a deep level accessible to the user and interpretable, even without a profound knowledge of the basic technologies.

XIMEA hyperspectral camera line is based on its popular xiQ family of USB3 Vision cameras which features exceptional form factor for today’s hyperspectral imaging: xiQ cameras measure 26.4 x 26.4 x 21.6 mm and weight mere 27 grams. This results in a proud claim of world’s smallest industrial USB 3.0 and hyperspectral imaging camera. XIMEA achieves this ultra-small footprint by using a single planar rigid board construction as opposed to competing multi-board and multifold flexi-rigid PCB construction, making xiQ easier to integrate into specialized equipment and OEM designs. These cameras also consume only 1.6 W, easing the power and thermal management design challenges of UAVs for example.

Perception Park’s machine vision bridge, called Perception System, is applied typically by machine builders and solution providers for industrial purposes. Its main markets today are recycling, food, mining and the pharmaceutical industry. By adapting the hyperspectral camera with a machine vision bridge, Chemical Color Imaging turns the camera to an easy-to-understand and configurable “Chemical Color Camera”. Since the output data is in a standardized machine vision format, all available image processing solutions can be facilitated for tasks like decision generation, counting or monitoring based on molecular infor-mation. The Perception System standardizes cameras, suppresses disturbing influences and performs hy-perspectral pre-processing as well as feature extraction and operation. The output is information ex-tracted per object pixel (per spectra).

According to Max Larin, CEO of XIMEA, “This cooperation between Hardware maker and Software provider is another step forward in the optimization of smallest, lightest, least power consuming and most cost effective solution in hyperspectral field today”.

For more than 20 years XIMEA has developed, manufactured and sold standard and OEM cameras for machine vision applications in motion control, assembly, robotics, industrial inspection and security, as well as scientific grade cameras for life science and microscopy. The main distinction is based on flexibility of development and production processes, and extremely robust way the cameras are built while still providing highest speed and power. Drawing on more than two decades of experience in the industry, XIMEA offer consists of state-of-the-art cameras with FireWire, USB 2.0, USB 3.0 and smart cameras with embedded PC and GigE interface.
