Flight Testing the Parrot Bebop Drone
October 13, 2015 - IEEE GlobalSpec

Twenty-five years ago, GPS technology began to be extended from military systems navigation to use in flight testing for aircraft attitude determination as well as civilian applications. Jump ahead to today with the proliferation of microprocessor and computing power advances...

Vision Sensors Specification Guide
IEEE GlobalSpec

Vision sensors (a.k.a. machine vision or vision systems) are products consisting of a video camera, display and interface, and computer processor to automate industrial processes and decisions. These are commonly used for measurement, pass/fail decisions, and other observable...

Drones Surf the Seas for Oil Majors
April 21, 2015 - IEEE GlobalSpec

Recent developments in robotics may offer savings for oil companies drilling off-shore. Companies like Liquid Robotics and Kongsberg Underwater Technology have developed ocean-faring gliders to test and collect water samples, detect oil leaks and monitor pipelines thus cutting costs and...

Smart Cameras Specification Guide
IEEE GlobalSpec

Smart cameras are individual image processing systems designed to automate decisions in an industrial capacity. These video cameras link an image sensor with a processing unit to determine the next desirable step of a mechanical process. They are smaller than PC-controlled...

Hydrostatic and Hydrodynamic Bearings Specification Guide
IEEE GlobalSpec

Hydrostatic bearings and hydrodynamic bearings are fluid film bearings that rely on a film of oil or air to create a clearance between the moving and stationary elements. Although they may be similar in appearance, hydrostatic and hydrodynamic bearings are different in operation from plain bearings...

Low Light Cameras Specification Guide
IEEE GlobalSpec

Images credits: Archi Expo; SafeSecure; Blenheim Security Low light cameras (sometimes called high sensitivity cameras) are a type of video camera with proprietary design features that enhance the capabilities of the camera to record in settings with little to no illumination. This is accomplished...

Video Cameras Specification Guide
IEEE GlobalSpec

Video cameras record live-action scenes that are available for viewing via a stored or transmitted video feed. This allows the user to create a permanent and detailed chronicle of events. Original video cameras-invented in the late 19th Century-created a "motion picture." This term is still...

CMOS Cameras Specification Guide
IEEE GlobalSpec

CMOS (complimentary metal-oxide-semiconductor) cameras are a type of image capture device that utilize an image sensor to register visible light as an electronic signal. These types of cameras do not use photochemical film to capture stills or video. Instead, the electronic signal is...

CID Cameras Specification Guide
IEEE GlobalSpec

CID (charge injection devices) cameras are a type of image capture device that utilize an image sensor to register visible light as an electronic signal. These types of cameras do not use photochemical film to capture stills or video. Instead, the electronic signal is recorded to...

CCD Cameras Specification Guide
IEEE GlobalSpec

CCD (couple-charged device) cameras are a type of image capture device that utilize an image sensor to register visible light as an electronic signal. These types of cameras do not use photochemical film to capture stills or video. Instead, the electronic signal is recorded to either...
