Basler will show its new Boost line of cameras at Automate 2019, marking the first time the new cameras have been shown in the North American marketplace. The new Boost line features the CoaXPress 2.0 interface, which according to the manufacturer enables the cameras to provide high resolution/high frame rate data over cable lengths up to 40 m and to transmit a maximum bandwidth of 12.5 Gbps over a single CXP cable. This also eliminates the need for an I/O cable and enables power-over-CXP functionality.
Teledyne Imaging will show products from its Teledyne DALSA and Teledyne e2v subsidiaries at Automate 2019.

SVS-Vistek will exhibit its new line of USB3 models of the EXO camera series at Automate 2019. The exo342, exo367, and exo387 models feature 31.4, 19.6, and 16.8 MPixel resolution and allow 12, 18.5, and 21.5 fps respectively, at maximum USB3 bandwidth of 360 MB/s.
Cognex will show the In-Sight 9912 12 MPixel standalone area scan smart camera at Automate 2019. The In-Sight 9912 comes in monochrome and color models, features a 1.1' CMOS sensor with 3.45 µm pixel size, can acquire 14 fps in monochrome and 8 fps in color.
Lakesight Technologies will show the new EoSens 1.1CXP2 camera at Automate 2019. The new camera, which has a 80 x 80 x 53 mm footprint, features a LUX13HS CMOS global shutter sensor in 4/3' format with a 13.7 µm pixel size, and C-Mount and F-Mount options.
MoviMED and MoviTHERM will demonstrate together at Automate 2019 and are bringing demonstrations of new camera and sensor technologies to the show. The C5-CS series laser triangulation scanning sensor from Automation Technology will be on display by MoviMED, along with an automated 3D inspection demonstration using a Zivid camera for 3D color imaging in conjunction with a Universal Robot. MoviMed will also showcase the 3D Pixa color line scan camera from Chromasens.
The MCS series of compact 3D sensors from Automation Technology, to be shown at Automate 2019, are built with IP67 protection and tailored to user specifications. Current sensor modules support output up to 2,048 points per profile and a profile speed up to 200 kHz. Scan width ranges from 130 to 1200 mm, z-range is 100 to 800 mm with a triangulation angle of 15 to 45°, resolution x is between 80 and 580 µm, resolution z is between 2 and 22 µm. The laser is available in red or blue, with three laser
Baumer Optronic will be showing two series of cameras, with a spotlight on three specific models, at Automate 2019. The 10 GigE interface version of the LX series camera features between 3 and 12 MPixels based on Sony Pregius sensors, providing up to 216 fps, with mono or color models.
At the Automate 2019 conference, LUCID Vision Labs will show two cameras, the Helios 3D and 5GBASE-T Atlas models. The Helios 3D 0.3 MPixel camera features Sony's IMX556PLR back-illuminated Time of Flight NIR image sensor with 640 x 480 array, 10 µm pixel size, and the ability to produce depth data at 60 fps over a Power over Ethernet GigE interface.
OmniVision has released two new image sensors, the OV13B and OV16A. The OV13B is a 13 MPixel sensor in a 1/3' optical format with 1.12 µm pixel size. The small size of the chip enables 8.5 x 8.5 mm autofocus modules for main smartphone cameras and 6.4 x 7.2 mm fixed-focus modules for front-facing cameras. The OV13B is capable of 13 MPixel and 4K2K video at 30 fps, 1080p at 60 fps, and 720p at 120 fps.
IDS Imaging Development Systems has announced the integration of the IMX273 1.6 MPixel 1/3' global shutter CMOS sensor into its uEye LE camera family. IDS touts the new sensor as providing excellent image quality in poor lighting conditions or while capturing images of fast-moving objects.
LiDAR technology is a central feature in many autonomous vehicles' vision systems. LiDAR has difficulty dealing with fog and dust. Autonomous vehicles that can't account for poor driving conditions require the intervention of human drivers. Researchers at MIT have made a leap toward solving this challenge.
