Labforge and Mouser Electronics
Announce Global Distribution Agreement
Waterloo, ON, June 28, 2022 Labforge, Inc. announces a global distribution agreement with Mouser Electronics, Inc., a leading semiconductor and electronic component distributor. According to the agreement, Mouser will offer their customers Labforge’s Bottlenose™ family of high-resolution smart cameras for robotics, industrial automation, Internet of Things (IoT), and security applications.
“The groundbreaking Bottlenose family of cameras with on-board AI, HDR, depth computation, and feature point matching will catalyze the rapidly advancing industrial automation, robotics, and defense industries,” said Andy Kerr, Vice President of Supplier Management at Mouser Electronics. “We’re ecstatic to offer Labforge’s innovative cameras in our continuing quest to advance these sectors.”
“Working with Mouser Electronics will allow global access for integrators, engineers, and roboticists to acquire and integrate our high-performance smart cameras into their new projects,” said Kendra Serbinski, Business Development Manager at Labforge. “Mouser’s leading distribution expertise and best-in-class service enables innovation across industries and geographies, and we are pleased to be a part of their efforts.”
Bottlenose cameras offer built-in capability that does not require any additional software licenses or subscription fees. All processing happens on the camera itself, and customers don’t have to pay any third-party data charges or cloud fees either. Stereo versions boast dual image sensors, while both monocular and stereo versions have hardware-synchronized, triple-axis gyroscopes, accelerometers, and magnetometers.
Each camera is equipped with a powerful 20.5TOPS 16nm chip with ten processors, four DSPs, and eight types of accelerators. This makes it possible for users to perform on-camera object detection and classification, compute depth, segmentation, and feature tracking. Engineers and integrators can use a simple microcontroller to read results via the serial port, as there are no minimum requirements on the client side. Advanced applications are also accommodated via popular frameworks like MVTec HALCON and ROS via the GigE Vision 2.1 API.
Bottlenose cameras offer an ideal solution for a variety of applications including service and delivery robots, manufacturing automation, AgTech robots, VRU protection, and food and beverage processing.
