Macnica ATD becomes distributor for Prophesee's vision system in Europe
Metavision event-based sensor platform
The Metavision platform is based on Prophesee's event-based machine vision, which uses neuromorphic sensing and computing techniques to mimic the human eye and brain. Each pixel activates itself when it senses a change in the scene, a movement - an event. This proprietary approach significantly reduces power consumption, as well as the latency and data processing requirements that traditional vision systems perform.
The Metavision sensor and associated Metavision Intelligence software suite are suitable for applications including: accelerating quality assessment on production lines; positioning, detecting and guiding motion of robots to enable better human collaboration; and monitoring assets for predictive maintenance and reduced machine downtime.
"The solution has been production proven and the Prophesee Metavision platform is now conquering significant industry applications. Macnica ATD Europe is happy to pave that way for event-based vision in the industry,” said Antoine Hide, General Director of Macnica ATD Europe upon contract signing.
