Prophesee to Showcase Innovative Machine Vision Capabilities at VISION 2018


PARIS – October 20, 2018 –  Prophesee SA (formerly Chronocam), inventor of the most advanced neuromorphic vision systems, will use the VISION 2018 event to showcase some of the latest innovations being enabled by its bio-inspired, event-based machine vision technology. The company, a nominee for a VISION Award at the show, will demonstrate advancements in critical industrial capabilities, such as high-speed counting and vibration monitoring, that significantly improve the productivity and reliability of industrial automation systems.

The VISION event is held every two years and the 2018 edition will run from November 6-8 at the Messe Stuttgart, Germany

Prophesee will host demonstrations in its booth in Hall 1, Stand 1185. It will feature its recently introduced Onboard reference system. The system provides a guide for developers to optimally implement Prophesee’s neuromorphic vision technology for a variety of use models, including area monitoring, high-speed counting, vibration measurement, or real-time arc welding monitoring. Machine vision systems that utilize Prophesee’s image data acquisition and processing solutions save computational power, bandwidth, memory and energy.

Prophesee CEO and founder Luca Verre will also deliver a presentation at the show’s Vision Technology Days track, providing an overview of the company’s event-based approach to vision processing. That session will be held at 11:00AM on November 6 at Hall 1, Stand Z75

Prophesee’s solutions are aimed at improving a wide range of industrial uses, including accelerating quality assessment on production lines; reducing recalibration for high-speed inspection systems; positioning, sensing and movement guidance for robots to enable better human collaboration; and equipment monitoring (e.g. caused by vibration, kinetic deviations) for predictive maintenance and reduced machine downtime.

About Prophesee

Prophesee (formerly Chronocam) was founded within iBionext Start-up Studio (Paris) in 2014 by Ryad Benosman, Bernard Gilly, Christoph Posch and Luca Verre. The quartet brings a strong combination of experience in image sensing, neuromorphic computing, VLSI design, entrepreneurship and business development. Mimicking the human eye and brain, the company’s unique event-based method selects only the most useful and relevant elements of a scene, reducing the power, latency and data processing requirements imposed by traditional frame-based systems.

Prophesee’s sensors and camera systems open vast new potential in areas such as autonomous vehicles, industrial automation, IoT, security and surveillance, and AR/VR. Its solutions improve safety, reliability efficiency and user experiences across a broad range of use models.

Prophesee is based in Passage de l’innovation in Paris, with local offices in Japan and USA, is driven by a team of 60 visionary and global engineers, holds more than 20 international patents and is backed by leading international investors including 360 Capital Partners, Supernova Invest, iBionext, Intel Capital, Renault Group, and Robert Bosch Venture Capital.
