Soliton was founded in 1998 by Dr Ganesh Devaraj. The inspiration to start Soliton apparently came when he read the book ‘Built to Last’, while working as a scientist at VI Engineering, Michigan, after obtaining a doctorate in Theoretical Physics from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. Soliton started as an Alliance Member of National Instruments, USA, and quickly garnered international recognition for its innovative work in Virtual instrumentation, winning 23 prestigious international awards in seven years. In 2004, Soliton started a product division for manufacturing machine vision cameras that could address the need in the manufacturing industry for sophisticated quality control tools. Soliton has since extended its services from offering solutions for stated automation needs, to offering consulting and R&D services for the purpose of addressing the core needs of clients to build machine vision and automation products.
