Maria-Jose Alvarez, member of both the Momentum and Agritech & Foodtech Committees has been working with University of Auckland Doctoral student Amir Haji Rassouliha, out of the Auckland Bioengineering Institute on his MicroVision project. The team entered the Velocity 100k Challenge and won the Runner Up prize!

MicroVision is a smart algorithm that uses image registration and displacement to measure movement of objects up to 0.0002 of a pixel. Such accuracy allows the technology to assess stress strain and deformations in objects, even in low light situations. This technology is currently in development to assess the strain on large industrial structures.

We can’t wait to see what happens!
