Odos Imaging won the award in 2014 for its 3D time-of-flight cameras for machine vision. 'It was a great honour to win the Vision Award, particularly for a young company operating in an industrial marketplace,' commented Dr Chris Yates, CEO of Odos Imaging, speaking recently to Imaging and Machine Vision Europe.

'I think that winning the award has also increased the visibility of time-of-flight technology to a wider audience, as well as demonstrating that the technology has a future within an industrial context,' Yates added. 'It is also interesting that since winning the award, we have received an increased volume of contact from parties outside of traditional machine vision, suggesting that the profile of the Vision Award reaches well beyond the immediate machine vision community.'
Yates named three points necessary for a winning entry: innovation, that the technology addresses a current or future need in the marketplace, and that the entrant can communicate the technology clearly.
'I think that there were a combination of factors that contributed to our success in winning the award, including the real need for 3D capability in machine vision, both as an enabler and a driver for growth, as well as the novelty of our approach to time-of-flight imaging,' he said.

Chris Yates CEO & Co-founder ODOS IMAGING

will present his answer to the frequently upcoming question: Is 3D Time-of-Flight imaging technology ready for machine vision applications?
Chris Yates is the CEO and co-founder of Odos Imaging, having been recruited in 2010 to lead the commercialization of novel time-of-flight technology, originally developed within Siemens, Munich. Since the company was founded the scope and interest in time-of-flight imaging has increased dramatically, and within his presentation Chris will address the topic predominately from a machine vision perspective.

The view that atypical industries are becoming increasingly important for machine vision was seconded by Chris Yates, CEO of Odos Imaging. He told the press conference: 'Non-traditional applications are providing strong growth in the machine vision sector, often requiring solutions in complex and ill-constrained environments, for example the automated measurement and harvesting of crops in the field or greenhouse.'

Odos Imaging was announced as the winner of the Vision Award 2014 in the evening of 4 November for its time-of-flight 3D imaging system, Real.iZ VZ-1000. Yates said that high-resolution 3D imaging offered particular benefits to applications that are away from the factory. He said that such applications often have to tolerate high levels of ambient light while delivering a high-resolution image to identify specific features. He also predicted that combination imagery, such as hyper-spectral and range information from the same system, would increase the scope of application for machine vision techniques.
