I am brand new to this site. I have a need for some type of vision that can identify the edges of textiles (mostly all white) such as sheets, towels, Wash Clothes, etc. I would envision two types of robotic arms that would be able to fine (grab) the two ends on a side, not opposite ends, and spread them out. I understand that the vison may now be able to identify white textile. Any help or a company that may have the vison to do this would be greatly appreciated. Thanks Jeff Nichols

How is data transmitted over camera link affected by using cable lengths longer than the 10 meter limit typically specified? Is it just that the highest frame rates cannot be realized, but lower frame rates are possible? Or is it that the image integrity is compromised?

Looking for existing solutions for a mobile thermal application using an existing camera. We have a thermal camera - 640 x 480, 60fps, 8bit (or more) pixels. Currently, using a Pleora frame grabber GigE over Ethernet/PoE with a PC for lab and industrial apps. Desire to make a mobile system: same camera, frame rate, etc. User can start and stop acquisition. Store up to 20 - 30mins of video, which should be ~32GB+. Size, weight, and power need to be low. Seems system elements are: 1) Camera, 2) Grabber, 3) uP or other controller, 4) Storage. Any items exist that you know of? P.S. We believe we have a solution using an Intel Atom in ultra-compact format, but power hungry. Any other, like ARM + Storage solutions?

My company BuySend.com is a huge online retailer in the UK, we have over 500,000 products in our catalogue. When dealing with new suppliers we request a spread sheet of the suppliers’ entire product inventory, including the product barcode. We upload these products into our system, before adding further details and listing the product for sale on our website. We now have a major issue where sometimes the suppliers spread sheets do not include the leading zero on barcodes (sometimes due to the format they have been saved in), or sometimes because they are a UPC barcode and have less digits. We want to know if there is some sort of barcode validation tool we can use in our system, so that if for example we try uploading the barcode 77540050857, our system knows that the actual barcode should be 077540050857 (with the leading zero). It would therefore not create a duplicate product in our system like it does now. It would also be ideal if it could spot bad barcodes and simply not import them into our system as new products. I am sure every single large retail company comes across this issue and as you are probably aware we simply cannot afford to have bad data in our system, especially when it comes down to barcodes, as this causes havoc across many areas of our company. Please let me know if you offer some of service that would be able to aid us with this? If not, do you know any companies that would be able to help?
