Smart Vision Lights Donation Illuminates LSSU Engineering Capstone Project

As a four-student engineering team at Lake Superior State University discovered, ambient lighting rarely fits the bill for sophisticated vision applications. Tasked with designing a vision-guided robotic automated validation system for their senior project, the team quickly realized their designs wouldn’t perform to specification without powerful, glare-reducing lights.


SVL Light Panel Used for Tracking Invertebrate Speed

Exploratory speed drives species’ interactions with their environment, from escaping predators to finding mating partners. Most studies have focused on vertebrate speed and how it scales with body mass, but researchers recently used automated image-based tracking to characterize the exploratory speed of 173 invertebrates. The team recorded the animals’ movement in an environmental chamber, illuminated by an SVL infrared LED light panel.


Ultraviolet Light Reveals What Visible Light Overlooks

In a recent article published in Vision Systems Design magazine, Smart Vision Lights' head of engineering, Matt Pinter, explains how much more effective ultraviolet light can be when used during inspection processes compared to visible light. Read more at:

EZ Mount Ring Light Featured in: Smart robot performs vision-assisted surgery

The EZ Mount Ring Light (R130) was featured in an article published by Vision System Design, entitled "Industry Solutions: Smart robot performs vision-assisted surgery". This article discusses how robots are being tested to help with soft-tissue surgery, in place of manual or teleoperated procedure. In additional to using two cameras, one that is a NIR camera and the other a plenoptic 3D camera, a R130 EZ Mount Ring Light is used to illuminate.


UCLAN Study - An Unobtrusive Intelligent Multisensory Mirror

A University of Central Lancashire Study

Advanced glycation end products (AGE) are linked to inflammation and atherosclerosis and play a role in both the microvascular and macrovascular complications of diabetes. In this project a noninvasive, contactless novel technique is proposed to quantify AGE deposits in skin tissue. The technique collects MSI images during UV exposure from a 365 nm LED (Smart Vision Lights)
