Why are vision systems so interesting for sports applications?

March 18, 2023

When athletes compete against each other, vision systems are often involved to check referee decisions, create statistics, or make training more effective. Because with high-resolution images, details can be recognised that are hardly visible to the human eye: Whether it is the smallest changes in body posture, the exact trajectory of a ball or minimal distances on the goal line – computer vision makes sport fairer and more exciting.

More speed thanks to TCP offload

November 26, 2022

TCP offload means that TCP network packets are unpacked from the network card and assembled into larger segments. This task is usually done by the CPU but can be done to a large extent on hardware with modern network set-ups. Another common term for TCP offload is Receive Segment Coalescing (RSC). Read more

Complete surface inspection with 3D smart sensors

September 18, 2021

Surface inspection can be a highly complex task especially with product shapes such as wood flooring panels where you need to inspect both large areas of the panel surface finish at the same time as detailed high-resolution profile of the tongue and groove sides.

This article explains how to master this challenge in a single work step. By combining different LMI 3D laser line profilers into a single system allows you to scan large areas and at the same time capture the smallest details in high resolution. Read more
