360° camera-based vision systems are the key to safety, driver assistance, accident avoidance, assisted parking and reversing monitoring. Trelleborg is a leader in designing custom automated End of Line (EOL) test systems for fascia mounted cameras as well as side and rear view mirror cameras. Our engineers have developed customer camera hardware and software for testing analog and digital cameras, including the latest 360° surround view digital camera technology. Trelleborg has developed a robust testing mechanism for verifying the functionality and alignment of rear and front mounted vehicular cameras. Using a properly designed test target and holding fixture, Trelleborg’s EOL camera test system can check for multiple things in a fast and accurate manner.
Trelleborg’s camera test software can be easily configured to account for alignment, precision tolerances, fish-eye lens distortion, ambient lighting conditions and depth of field problems. The hardware required to interface the cameras with a Windows PC is a simple plug and play device.
Traceability is defined as the capability for tracing goods backward along the supply chain and forward along the distribution chain based on identifying characteristics. It is essential to automotive manufacturers and an integral part of any EOL test systems designed by Trelleborg. Using barcode scanners, RFID readers, Label printers, Ethernet communication, PLC input, Trelleborg will work with the customer to develop the crucial link between the customer’s MES and the part ID. Test results can be can go beyond simple “Pass/Fail” to include archived test results and images from vision inspections.
