eYs3D Joins HIWIN and Etron to Develop

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE【News Release】【2016 Computex 3D Business & Application Area】eYs3D Joins HIWIN and Etron to Develop “Robot Eye Solutions for Industry 4.0″Bring IC Design into Industrialization, Raise Added-Value, and Optimize Manufacturing How can Taiwan lead the world and win tremendous business opportunities in Industry 4.0, which integrates IoT, Cloud Computing, Big Data, and Smart Factory? Promoting Industry 4.0 is the core of Taiwan’s industry competitiveness, with rapidly increasing demand for highly integrated sensors, which can ideally be provided by combining semiconductors, machine tools and precision machinery. HIWIN Technologies Corp, Etron Technology, Inc, and eYs3D Microelectronics, Co. are jointly developing “Robot Eye Solutions for Industry 4.0″ and plan to sign a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to further this partnership. Etron’s and eYs3D’s 3D depth-map capturing controllers can deliver high-performance depth-map images, and this is becoming one of the critical sensor components for Industry 4.0. This product has already been adopted by HIWIN for industrial robots. “Recently, the growth in semiconductor market has been limited, and the next big thing is IoT, which necessitates many more sensors, especially 3D depth-map image detector and capturing controllers. In addition, IoT, smart automation, artificial intelligence, machine learning, machine visual and other critical technologies are widely seen as the critical innovative technologies for industrial and economic growth,” said Dr. Nicky Lu, CEO of Etron Technology.During Computex (May 31 – June 4), ” Robot Eye Solutions for Industry 4.0″ will be presented at booth No. D0725a, Hall 1, Taipei World Trade Center. Etron warmly welcomes companies to experience its 3D depth-map ICs for Smart Factory applications. For further information, please visit www.etron.com.
