Back to the beginning
The history of the evoVIU
Prototyping (2015 - 2016)
The first step was to develop a concept for the smart camera. The first prototypes were realized and feasibility studies were carried out to find out which components would be needed. After all, choosing the right processor, image sensor, and ultimately optics is crucial to having a usable, high-quality smart camera. Already in this phase there were first solutions for data transmission and control via a web interface. In order to test whether the prototypes really meet all requirements, they were tested in the press shop of an automobile manufacturer.
Smart camera as a product (2017 - 2019)
Over the next few years, the inner workings of the smart camera were built up and optimized step by step. The circuit boards for this were designed in such a way that all components could be compactly packed into the smallest possible space, but there was still the possibility of individual design and adaptability of the camera. A housing encased the sensitive electronics and thus protected the processor, sensor and lens from external influences. A display is integrated in the housing, which can be used to make further settings. In addition, the web interface was further developed so that the user could easily interact with the camera. Further quality and feasibility tests followed, so that nothing stood in the way of its use for its original purpose.
