Hexapod for Drone Testing – 6 Axis Motion Simulator to Improve Image Stabilization

The human brain can do amazing things when it comes to image processing.  Everyone who has taken video while running or just walking has made that experience.  Our brain filters out all the jitter and shake and plays back a reality that is more virtual than real. For the longest time since the inception of […]

Patterned Motion Generation: Precision in the Time Domain

Complex patterned motion generation is becoming increasingly important for applications such as vehicular simulation and airborne platform simulation and test.  However, many other emerging fields of structural and active mechanical subsystem analysis, validation, and design can also benefit from flexible, six-degree-of-freedom motion simulator mechanisms capable of generating specific motion patterns in real time. Previously, mechanical […]

Image Stabilization and Multi-Axis Patterned Motion Simulation

Motion simulation is crucial in the evaluation of many devices, including vibrating testing of vehicles or airplanes, response testing of accelerometers or gyroscopes and image sensors such as those used in high end cameras and smartphones. Repeatable multi-axis motion simulation can help tweak advanced algorithms in image stabilization systems and verify the performance of opto-mechanical […]

Fast Piezo Scanning Stages for Pixel Sub-Stepping, Image Resolution Enhancement, Super-Resolution Imaging and Vibration and Shake Suppression

Increasing the Resolution of Optical Sensor Chips: Applications of Pixel Sub-Stepping Optical Resolution in Imaging Low light conditions create difficult conditions for imaging applications from astronomy to microscopy. Low light intensity means neither the resolution of the chip nor the exposure time for changing or moving objects can be freely chosen. Typical applications are fluorescence […]
