ProCam® – Testing of camera modules for automotive applications


Active alignment, assembly and testing of camera modules and LiDAR systems

With the measurement and production equipment of the ProCam® series, we offer the latest solutions for the challenge of active alignment and series production of high-precision optical sensor systems. Active Alignment technology has a key function in optimizing the image quality of camera modules and LiDAR components. By providing optimal image quality across the entire field of view, active alignment is an established and efficient manufacturing process to produce high-end camera applications and LiDAR systems.

What is active alignment? Aligning an image sensor to a lens while actively reading image data from the sensor.

Active alignment & assembly of ADAS cameras

Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS) technologies for vehicles require highly reliable image processing systems and optical sensors to ensure safe and trouble-free operation on the road. Lives depend on it. These requirements are met by TRIOPTICS optical measurement and manufacturing systems. We integrate these high-precision metrology modules into mass production and provide solutions for the lens quality check, active alignment and end-of-line test for fully automated camera production lines.

ProCam® Prototyping Applications


The demand for high-quality machine vision systems and optical sensors for a wide range of applications in many different industries is steadily increasing, and imaging systems that enable better optical performance are required. In this context, the reduction in pixel size and increase in pixel density of modern image sensors pose a challenge to the precise optical alignment of lenses and sensors. TRIOPTICS strives to ensure the necessary performance of camera systems with reliable measurement and control algorithms. The ProCam® and CamTest product lines have proven to meet availability and yield requirements with low cycle times. Solutions range from products for semi-automated production to system integration for fully automated production lines that meet the requirements of the automotive industry.

ProCam® Software

The ProCam® software “CamAlign” consists of components for the fully-automated active alignment process:

  • Using high precision image analysis algorithms, all relevant parameters for the accurate alignment process such as the MTF at multiple field positions and the tilt of the image plane are automatically analyzed in real-time and used in the alignment process.

  • All stages of the alignment and measuring process are software-controlled by ProCam®

  • With the integrated scripting tool, the measurement and alignment process can easily be tailored to specific customer needs and products.

  • The measurement data can be saved in a database so that the process is completely traceable

  • Configuration files for different types of camera modules for fast product change

Sensor test

Multi-position Dome

In the development and prototyping phase, many customers want to try out different camera configurations and measurement positions.

The new Multi-position Dome from TRIOPTICS has been developed exactly for this trial and error phase and maximizes flexibility in camera production and testing. The set-up of the collimators can be changed with a few simple steps and allows a continuous adjustment of the collimators. Minimum and maximum angles are quickly adjusted and positioned. Three different sensor formats 1:1, 4:3 and 16:9 can be tested in just one device thanks to the Multi-position Dome.

In concrete terms, this means time and cost savings when changing products. The numerous adjustable measurement positions make camera production and testing more flexible than ever before.

The new Multi-position Dome is now available as an upgrade for ProCam® Lab, ProCam® Align Smart and CamTest Focus.
