New Case Study:
Autonomous Forklifts Increase Efficiency in Cheese Warehouse Operations
Our latest case study explains how Florinco has met the challenge of specular reflection from metal racks, integrating LUCID’s Helios time of flight cameras into their 3D vision-guided autonomous forklifts. The forklifts, provided by Toyota Material Handling, stack and de-stack cheese boxes 24/7, moving them between ripening halls and position the boxes with accuracy regardless of shiny metal edges on the racks. This system ultimately increases warehouse productivity and efficiency. To learn more read the Case Study and watch the video.
In Production Two new Atlas10 models featuring 10GBASE-T GigE PoE are now in production and ready to order. Atlas10 IMX531 (20.4 MP) and IMX532 (16.2 MP) models deliver a new level of imaging performance thanks to Sony’s proprietary back-illuminated pixel structure which enables excellent image quality at high resolutions and fast frame rates.

New Compact C-mount Lenses We've added new Universe Optics lenses, which come in a compact size about 33% smaller than other C-mount lenses, offering up to 50% weight reduction while maintaining the same imaging performance. These compact lenses are compatible with our small IP67 lens tube (33mm outside diameter). When paired with the Phoenix or Triton camera, the overall cross section is within the camera's height and width dimensions and maintains its compactness. Visit lens product page.
