About this event

This lecture describes and then demonstrate how lasers, smart cameras, 3D scanners and optical ASICs (application specific IC's) are the latest technologies used to achieve robust, reliable sensors for detection identification, or machine safety applications.

The lecture will explain the basic principles of operation of optical sensors and the wide range of types and specifications that are available. Advice will be given of what factors need to be considered to select the correct sensor for an application in the real world of industry.

Barcode & 2D code reading systems will be explained and the differences between laser based or vision based systems will be explained. Lasers will also feature in an introduction to machine safety using optical sensing in light curtains or laser scanning.

The evening will conclude by showing the latest product developments and how optical sensors have advanced to overcome the challenges of industry including a demonstration of 3D sensing and vision systems.

Come along and play with our conveyor built out of Lego and relive your childhood.
