Announcing the first development cooperation on industrial grade event-based vision systems from Imago, powered by Prophesee

IMAGO Technologies and Prophesee, have announced their cooperation in the development of the first, industrial grade, event-based vision systems prototypes.

IMAGO VisionCam, Powered by Prophesee, will embed Prophesee’s Event-Based Vision Sensor and Algorithms initially developed for its reference system, ONBOARD.

IMAGO Technologies will be at the Embedded World from 26th – 28th February 2019. Discover the first prototypes and live demonstration at the IMAGO booth 458 in hall 1.


Event-Based Vision unlocks new applications such as Kinematic Monitoring, designed to monitor in real-time any deviation in your machine production cycles.

A machine with parts moving following  a regular cycle can be monitored with precision by assessing if each pixel is triggered at the exact time it should be. The system will flag any deviation, spatially or temporarily,  before they can cause a production stop.

In addition, it can log KPIs, such as average cycle time and shutdown time.

·        1% Motion Period Irregularity Detection

·        1 pixel Motion Amplitude Defficiency Detection


With Prophesee’s patented event-based vision technology, objects are counted as they pass through the field of view, triggering each pixel independently as the object goes by.

By only recording the pixels independently triggered by changes, Prophesee’s Event-Based Vision captures the essential information the system requires and no more.

This new approach allows for unprecedented counting speed and accuracy

·        1000 Obj/s. Max Throughput

·        >99.5%  Accuracy


Drastically improve your predictive maintenance strategy by measuring and monitoring equipment vibrations from 1Hz to 10kHz continuously, in real time and in a non-intrusive way.

This information now allows your maintenance team to observe and understand any process deviation long before machines malfunction or break down. In this way, Event-Based Vision will ensure the longevity of your machinery, making your capital investments go further. 

·        1 pixel Minimal Amplitude Detection

·        >1000 Hz Maximum Frequency Detection
