    Autonomous Vehicles in the Orchard

    The Autonomous Orchard Assistant Altes Land (Aurora) is a small autonomous vehicle that can move independently around in the field, identify boxes of crops, know when they are full and pick them up and bring them to a specified location....

    How Deep Learning Advances Machine Vision

    Machine vision is one of the most helpful automation technologies for many industrial workflows. While these object recognition systems can streamline quality control processes, guide autonomous robots and more, many still rely on basic rules-based...

    Imaging Advance in Diagnosing Alzheimer's Disease

    Twenty years ago the only sure way to know whether a person had Alzheimer’s disease was by examining the brain through autopsy, after death. Thanks to advances in research over the past few decades, lab and imaging tests are now available to...

    Measuring Aspheres with Next-Gen Solutions

    An aspheric lens, or sometimes known as an asphere, is a lens that’s not part of a sphere or cylinder and it can depart somewhat from a sphere. The more complex surface profile of an asphere not only reduces or eliminates spherical aberration...
