SiLC Technologies launches Eyeonic Vision Solution

1 min read

SiLC Technologies, a machine vision developer, has launched the Eyeonic Vision System.

Said to be the most compact and powerful coherent vision system delivering the highest resolution, highest precision and longest range it is the only FMCW LiDAR solution to offer polarisation information.

The Eyeonic Vision System integrates the company’s photonics technology into the industry’s first available turnkey vision solution – a highly flexible subsystem that reduces time to market for manufacturers seeking to incorporate machine vision into their products.

Targeted at robotics, autonomous vehicles, smart cameras and other advanced products, the solution provides high levels of vision perception to identify and avoid objects with very low latency, even at distances of greater than 1 kilometre.

At the heart of the Eyeonic Vision System is the company’s fully integrated silicon photonics chip. With roughly 10 milli-degrees of angular resolution coupled with mm-level precision, it provides more than 10x the definition and precision of legacy LiDAR offerings. This enables the Eyeonic Vision Sensor to measure the shape and distance of objects with high precision at great distances.

The Vision System couples the Eyeonic Vision Sensor and a digital processing solution based on a powerful FPGA. This compact, flexible architecture enables the synchronisation of multiple vision sensors for unlimited points/second.
