Company Description
Cognex Corporation is the world leading provider of vision systems, vision software, vision sensors and surface inspection systems used in manufacturing automation. Cognex is also a leader in industrial ID readers. Cognex vision helps companies improve product quality, eliminate production errors, lower manufacturing costs, and exceed consumer expectations for high quality products at an affordable price.

Baraja is a 3D machine vision systems manufacturer. It has invented a new type of LiDAR called Spectrum-Scan which delivers the highest performance available to address the challenge of self-driving cars.

Baraja is a rapidly growing start-up, with a revolutionary LiDAR for self-driving vehicles. The company is based in Sydney, Australia, with offices in China and the USA. It is quickly expanding worldwide, hiring through Europe and Asia, closely collaborating with car manufacturers to iterate and refine its vision of what LiDAR needs to be.

Industry 4.0 has a blind spot: Human beings. It turns out that people still perform up to 90% of factory tasks. Even in an age of robotics and IIoT, people are the main contributor to value-and, alas, to variability. Unfortunately, techniques for measuring human effectiveness haven't materially changed in a century. They remain manual and impossible to perform at scale. People are effectively invisible to analytics. Drishti (Sanskrit for "vision") solves this problem using what may be the world's first commercial application of action recognition to digitize human activities on the assembly line. Drishti creates a massive new dataset that enables true Digital Transformation for manufacturers while simultaneously making line workers more competitive against automation. Our mission is to "extend human potential in an increasingly automated world", starting with this 100-year-old problem in the $12T global manufacturing industry.

Founded in 2004 as FS Systems, and now Fisher Smith, we have over 50 combined years of experience of machine vision and Industrial Control Systems. Our knowledge and technical abilities has enabled us to develop two key software products, RoboVis® and GenVis. Written and developed in house by Iain Smith with usability and flexibility in mind, both products have become mature and stable machine vision platforms.

Riseye(Shenzhen) Co., Ltd. is a high-tech enterprise specializing in machine vision inspection and industrial intelligence. It originated from the Computer Vision Laboratory of Shanghai Jiaotong University founded by Professor Liu Yuncai, the special professor of the National Education Minister Jiang Scholars in 2000.
As part of the TKH group, LMI Technologies is focused on the design, development, and delivery of smart 3D technologies, while our sister machine vision companies are dedicated to providing high-performance camera-based solutions.
IoT Solutions
Cognex machine vision and barcode reading tools enable companies around the world to improve assembly verification, eliminate defects, automate production and identify challenging barcodes reliably across a wide range of industries and applications.

Spectrum-Scan™ LiDAR

Baraja LiDAR connects a wavelength-tuneable laser (“Engine”) to prism-like optics (“Sensorheads”) using robust optic fiber cable. When light reaches the optics, it is naturally deflected in different directions: no rotating lasers or moving mirrors required.

By changing the color – or wavelength – of the laser, the system can scan different angles instantaneously, with unparalleled detail and adaptability.

Our core innovation: action recognition Drishti has built a new deep learning architecture that uniquely parses streams of video to generate real-time analytics on highly variable human actions. Put simply, Drishti can recognize activities being performed as the operator performs them, even if Drishti has never observed that operator before. Drishti is the only company in the world commercializing action recognition specifically for manufacturing, and one of the very few working with the technology in any industry. Beyond action recognition: our full stack Action recognition is just part of the solution. Drishti’s vertically integrated manufacturing solution extends end-to-end: from capturing video to creating data to providing applications, data services and workflow support for line operators, supervisors, engineers and more.
Riseye has machine vision and artificial intelligence core technologies based on deep learning-based visual inspection, high-precision visual positioning, sub-pixel visual measurement, etc., and successfully developed visual appearance inspection system, 3D vision measurement system, and visual scan code recognition system. Standard products that are common across industries, as well as non-standard products that can be customized according to customer needs of different industries, provide intelligent, high-efficiency, low-cost machine vision solutions for automation integrators, automation equipment manufacturers and terminal manufacturing enterprises.
Our flagship Gocator and FocalSpec product lines help factories achieve 100% inspection, reduce waste by optimization, and improve efficiency by simplifying automation. Trusted in the most challenging applications, our 3D solutions help customers improve control of their processes and stay ahead of the competition.
