SRI International (SRI), a non-profit research centre, has partnered with Kawada Technologies, Inc. (KTI) and Kawada Industries to develop weld-visualisation technology for a 3D welding helmet.
The companies will co-develop Xtreme Dynamic Range (XDR) weld visualisation technology that uses image processing to safely visualise live weld details to the welder. The XDR technology will then be applied to a next-generation, 3D-welding helmet that uses cameras.
The objective of the project is to improve welding quality by enhancing visibility of the welding scene using ordinary image sensors rather than high cost sensors.
