Who founded Sensors Unlimited Inc?

Here’s the answer to the question from my last posting. Sensors Unlimited Inc. was founded in 1992 by Greg Olsen and Marshall Cohen. They sold the business in 2000 for $600 million, and Greg then spent a small piece of the proceeds on a ride to the International Space Station, making him only the third private citizen to orbit the earth.

Who says machine vision people are down to earth types?

This information comes from Greg’s bio, available on his web site at http://ghoventures.com/default.aspx

And a special mention goes to Richard Bellemare who was first to get the correct answer. Congrats Richard, no prize this time I'm afraid but check back for more competitions soon!
