5. Development of Smart Vision Sensors for Road traffic and Industrial Applications

Smart vision sensor is machine vision system capable of extracting application-specific information from the images of interest that can be used for implementing stand-alone intelligent and decision making system without a PC or bulky devices. They also provide simple user interface for ease of operation.

The specific technology fall-outs includes

  • Design and development of a thermal imaging sensor based camera supporting industry standard interface protocols (GigE and USB/RS232) for outdoor application such as vehicle detection and traffic monitoring. Demand for the vehicle detection camera in India is huge; but, currently the entire market is controlled by foreign suppliers
  • Design and development of image processing algorithms and application for vehicle detection. The application proposed under this project is only representative. The Thermal imaging based sensors can be used for running other applications such as intrusion monitoring under low light conditions
  • Design and development of Graphical User Interface for smart vision sensor applications. A typical requirement is specifying multiple detection zones of the vehicle detection camera having direction filters and thresholds for different type/class of images
  • Design and development of CMOS sensor based industrial smart vision sensor that support industry standard protocols (GigE Vision and USB3 Vision) and to provide a generic programming interface based on GenICam TM standard to provide interoperability and support for standard application programming interface (API)
  • Design and development of smart electronics module capable of executing image processing algorithms and provide industry standard input/output interface and communication interfaces. The smart electronics module will be a common hardware for both the vision sensors
  • Design and development of image processing algorithms and application for sugar crystal size characterization. The application proposed under this project is only representative. The CMOS based smart vision sensors can be used for running other applications as well, based on the algorithm ported on them

Expected outcome

  • Thermal vision sensor for Road traffic application
  • Industrial vision sensor (CMOS based)
  • Sugar crystal size characterization system using industrial vision sensor
  • Vehicle presence detection application using thermal vision sensor
  • Technology transfer

Industry connect

  • M/s. DIMTS Ltd., Delhi, M/s. Onnyx Electronics, Delhi, M/s. Envoys Electronics Pvt. Ltd., Gurgaon and M/s. Keltron, Trivandrum for the Thermal imaging based smart vision sensor embedded with Vehicle Detection application
  • M/s Spookfish Innvoations PVT LTD focuses on applying the latest computer vision technology and machine learning techniques to provide industrial automation
  • M/s Dharani Sugars and Chemicals Limited (DSCL) has three integrated Sugar plants with a total crushing capacity of 10000 TCD
