Robert Wilson, RDI LLC

Robert Wilson RDIRDI LLC has developed and patented a technology platform capable of measuring motion, vibration, and displacement not visible to the human eye. RDI utilizes standard video camera technology in conjunction with methods and processing algorithms to extract meaningful data. This technology turns virtually every pixel in the camera’s view into a sensor capable of measuring vibration or motion with sub pixel accuracy. The results naturally lend themselves to a visualization of the motion and several unique market segments. The opportunities are endless as previously undetectable motions from anything that a camera can see can now be measured and quantified. RDI’s focus is on 3 major markets: human respiration monitoring, structural health monitoring, and machine condition monitoring. RDI technology creates the ability to see an infant’s respiration rate, the deflection of a bridge while a truck drives over it, and the vibration of a machine as it produces goods, all with a simple video camera.
