Imaging wins big at Photonics West

Share this on social media:

Three imaging companies have won Prism Awards at SPIE’s flagship event, Photonics West, in San Francisco.

Israeli firm Inspekto won in the manufacturing category for its quality assurance system; Outsight for its 3D semantic camera in the transportation category; and WaveOptics for its waveguides for augmented reality in the vision technology category.

The Prism Awards reflect developments taking place across photonics. SPIE received 105 applications from 18 countries, and finalists and winners were selected by a panel of judges from the technology commercialisation and funding sectors.

Inspekto’s S70 system is designed to reduce the integration cost of industrial inspection equipment thanks to its AI-based learning approach to machine vision.

Outsight’s 3D semantic camera combines lidar ranging with spectral analysis that can identify the chemical composition of objects. The company is working with OEMs and tier one suppliers in the automotive, aeronautics and surveillance markets. The camera also has simultaneous localisation and mapping capability on the chip.

WaveOptics makes waveguides for AR smart glasses. The technology directs light into the user’s eye so that a digital image can be overlaid onto the real world.

The Prism Award winners in categories ranging from optical communication to healthcare and life sciences were announced on 5 February at Photonics West.
