Rockwell Automation has acquired 3D time-of-flight company Odos Imaging. Rockwell Automation will add the Scottish firm’s technology to its sensing products for use in automotive and general assembly, packaging and material handling, and logistics.

‘This acquisition enables us to build on our portfolio of smart sensing and safety products, an important part of the foundation for the connected enterprise,’ said Lee Lane, Rockwell Automation vice president and general manager, safety, sensing and connectivity business. ‘It enables us to expand our existing capabilities by bringing 3D time-of-flight sensor technology to industrial applications.’

Founded in 2010, Odos Imaging, located in Edinburgh, Scotland, won the Vision Award in 2014 at the Vision show in Stuttgart for its time-of-flight technology. Its cameras provide megapixel resolution, making it suitable for industrial imaging applications.

‘We are delighted to be joining Rockwell Automation and continue the development of 3D imaging solutions for industrial applications,’ said Chris Yates, CEO of Odos Imaging. ‘Rockwell Automation is a company we have long admired for its ongoing commitment to innovation and substantial domain expertise. We very much look forward to playing our part in the ongoing strategy and helping to achieve the vision of a productive and sustainable future.’

Rockwell Automation, with headquarters in Milwaukee, USA, employs approximately 22,000 people serving customers in more than 80 countries.
