NOW has worked in a number of projects with both hardware and software in the Med-tech industry. Projects have comprised vision and machine learning for screening in pharmaceutical production and medical screening. Some projects have reulte in complete products and in other projects NOW has delivered parts of the product design.

    Controller board

    Controller board with multiple interfaces for DC motors, stepper motors, encoders, and position and photo sensors. The board is controlled by a PC-104 module via an ISA-bus, and includes an Altera Cyclone III FPGA. The board also supports automatic electronic monitoring of the motor current, board voltages and temperature, in order to allow emergency shutdown without the help of software (handled by the FPGA).

    Video mixer

    Development of a video mixer that mixes images from two cameras and a computer – a tool for the visually impaired. The unit provides contrast enhancement and artificial colors in real time. The electronics consists of two circuit boards, and everything is controlled by an Altera Cyclone I FPGA, programmed in VHDL. The FPGA has a built-in soft NIOS processor, which is programmed in C.

    Vision system for inspecting dashboards

    NOW has developed a vision system for inspecting dashboards. The system is built using DirectShow and Microsoft Visual Studio .NET 2003. Cameras deliver images that are handled in real time. Possible parameters to inspect are: colour, intensity, shape, symbols, segment displays, LCD displays, indicator positions and indicator needle movement. The application encapsulates a scripting language that is easily configured through a graphichal interface. Optional controls/commands are carried out in sequence. The system communicates with the client’s control system via TCP/IP.
