Alliance Lifts Capabilities of Industrial Vision Systems

Short-Wave Infrared (SWIR) sensing technology pioneer TriEye LTD.  and automation integrated camera provider Toshiba Teli have agreed to partner. Particularly, the two companies are working together to commercialize a SWIR camera for industrial-related processes and applications.

TriEye and Toshiba Teli have successfully built industrial oriented CMOS-based HD SWIR camera. Currently, industrial machine vision systems lack vital image data required for full-range functionality.

This new integration will leverage TriEye’s SWIR sensing technology to provide vision systems with an additional layer of information, reshaping the industrial sector and enhancing processes capabilities. This partnership intends to make their solution available globally, introducing its advanced benefits to a wide range of verticals.

Delivers Value on Industrial Solutions

Although InGaAs-based SWIR sensing has been around for decades, it remained limited to industries like semiconductor fabrication, aerospace, and science due to the high costs and low production yield. TriEye’s unique technology introduces the industry’s first CMOS-based SWIR solutions for mass markets. Its technology enhances machine vision capabilities and assists in the detection of visible and invisible malfunctions, allowing them to accomplish tasks that were previously unattainable. Leveraging this solution will provide Toshiba’s customers with vital information such as material sensing and quality control.

“We are excited to partner with Toshiba, such a respected and well-known industry leader,” said Avi Bakal, CEO and Co-Founder of TriEye. “We believe their constant push to deliver value to their customers combined with their industrial specific advanced knowledge will be extremely beneficial to bring our SWIR sensing solution to be an industry standard.”

Meanwhile, Shinichi Itokawa, CTO of Toshiba Teli welcomed the company’s partnership with TriEye. “TriEye is providing markets with SWIR imaging capabilities needed for reliable automation in industrial processes at an unprecedented cost. This joint effort will accelerate the development of next-generation superior imaging tech capabilities for industrial cameras that will translate into every aspect of our lives.”

Previously, TriEye has collaborated with Hitachi Astemo, Porsche, Continental Engineering, Trimble, and DENSO. In addition, TriEye recently announced capital acquisition in funding to support their product commercialization and global expansion.
