The MC2 Technologies camera is able to see through walls, or clothes… Automatic object detection using image processing techniques
Tuesday, April 17, 2012

The Millicam 90 camera, developed by MC2 Technologies, is an innovative sensor, capable of seeing through walls, and making out hidden objects on people or in a luggage. Electromagnetic waves, emitted from human bodies, are recorded by a sensor to make images. Airport or customs security checks, or high-risks areas are the most targeted places.

MC2 Technologies trusts ORME to develop image processing libraries to automatically detect hidden objects on people. Theses libraries will handle denoising and distortion correction of the images, the silhouette and posture extraction, and the detection of the potential hidden objects.

A first release of these libraries, scheduled at the beginning of June 2012, is to be presented at the Land and Airland Defence and Security international exhibition Eurosatory. Other evolutions and applications are planned afterwards.

ORME enters the Chinese market with the opening a new office in Shanghai
Thursday, April 5, 2012

ORME is looking to expand more internationally, and has thus recently entered the Chinese market with the opening of a new office in China. Domenico De Bartolomeis is settled in Shanghai since the beginning of April 2012, and is in charge of the business development, and customer and prospect support in China. Domenico enable ORME to offer a continuous presence there, and thus promote our two software applications TrackImage and TrackReport.

This new market appears full of promises, with already several customers in China: Fujian Benz (a joint venture between Daimler, Fujian Motor and Taiwan China Motor) recently purchased TrackImage to measure seat deformations during the crash, PSA in Shanghai already uses TrackReport for test analysis and L’Oréal uses image analysis software applications from ORME.

MoorInspect: M6 meeting in CETEMMSA, Barcelona
Monday, April 2, 2012

MoorInspect LogoCETEMMSA, in Barcelona, hosts the M6-meeting -6-months milestone- for the MoorInspect project. This research project, leaded by a consortium of 9 European partners, aimed at developing a robot, in charge of the inspection of offshore platform mooring chains, using ultrasonic signal processing techniques. This innovative project, funded by the European Union under the 7th framework program, is planned in 2012 and 2013.

The purpose of this 6-month meeting is to share the current research results with the other partners, prepare the deliverables to the European Commission for this milestone, and plan the next activities.

In this project, ORME is taking part in the design and validation of the ultra-sonic signal processing algorithms for defaults detection.

ORME in Testing Expo, Chennai (India)
Tuesday, March 6, 2012

Visit ORME on our booth C3120 at Automotive Testing Expo India 2012 which will take place in Chennai from March 6th to 8th

We will present the new releases of our software products TrackReport and TrackImage and their modules dedicated to crash-test analyses, and some of our latest developments in the fields of signal and image analysis, like 3D deformation image analysis, automated acoustic test reporting,… 

We will be happy to meet you and talk about your needs and the solutions we can offer you!

The French National Center for Scientific Research (CNRS) orders an image processing software to analyze sun contours
Thursday, March 1, 2012

The LATMOS Laboratory, part of the CNRS, is involved in the PICARD project, aimed at measuring the sun diameter with a very high accuracy. These measures, made from space and from earth, should improve our knowledge about atmospheric perturbations, and the sun influence on earth climate. Thus, two telescopes, SODISM on the PICARD satellite, and its twin MISOLFA on the ground, are taking images of the sun contours.

ORME is in charge of developing an automatic analysis software application, to handle the image denoising, the precise sun contour localization, the derive correction, as well as the computation of the atmospheric perturbation parameters. On the one hand, this user-friendly software tool will enable the scientist in CNRS-LATMOS to process the huge image database. On the other hand, it offers an open architecture to test other analysis algorithms or other atmospheric perturbation models by themselves.

The first release delivery of the software application MISOLFA is planned during summer 2012.
