Polarization Software Solutions for Inline Stress Inspection
© Fraunhofer IIS
State-of-the-art polarization cameras, available from a number of different manufacturers, capture polarization images in one single acquisition. Using this data, our software library generates stress images and displays precise magnitude and orientation that help you determine the retardation and position of any potential residual stresses in the glass and immediately identifies any nonconforming products.

Special imaging in quality inspection

From pixels to applications – we make the invisible visible

For many years we have been developing challenging, specialized camera systems. We offer solutions in the field of multimodal image acquisition, polarization imaging and the analysis of defects.

The conception and investigation of imaging systems with high demands on quality, data rate and resolution as well as the transfer of the concepts into prototypes form another focus of our work.

Experience in the field of efficient implementations for real-time embedded machine learning solutions (e.g. deep learning approaches), which are transferred to the field of industrial inspection, round off our portfolio.
