Embedded Vision Systems

Under the name Embedded Vision Systems, we offer you a variety of image processing solutions ranging from out-of-the-box solutions with one or more smart cameras to multi-camera systems with a central embedded PC to integrated image processing devices. For our Embedded Vision Systems we use the proven development system MATROX Design Assistant. This allows us to use tried-and-tested software solutions and adapt them for your specific application in a short time.


Applications

The applications include occupied / empty inspections, calibration tasks, or process control in general. Some of our application examples for embedded vision systems can be found here…

Features

Smart Camera Systems

One or more Smart Cameras are usually used when the test task can be covered from the field of view of a camera (may also include deflection mirrors).

We only use the IRIS GT and MATROX IRIS GTR smart cameras from the renowned manufacturer MATROX Imaging.

Embedded PC Systems

Multi-camera systems with a central embedded PC are required when an overall test consists of several partial tests that can only be covered by multiple cameras.

A combination of MATROX 4Sight GPm image processing computer with BASLER industrial cameras, high-power LED lighting and the imaging development environment MATROX Design Assistant is the basis for almost any complex inspection systems.

Matrox Design Assistant

MATROX Design Assistant is an integrated development environment (IDE) for Windows where vision programs are created through intuitive flowcharts rather than traditional code. This allows the user to design a graphical web-based user interface for the application. Due to the hardware independence of the MATROX Design Assistant, you can choose between MATROX smart cameras, embedded PCs or any computer in conjunction with GigE Vision® or USB3 Vision® cameras as a platform.

MATROX Design Assistant offers a variety of prefabricated solutions that can be the basis for demanding image processing tasks, e.g.:

  • Barcode and 2D Code Detection
  • Presence check / Absence check
  • Recipe management
  • Robot Guide (Pick-and-Place)
  • Dot Matrix Text Recognition

Integrated image processing equipment

For your specific tasks, we design and build integrated image processing equipment according to our customer’s needs. Depending on the application, we use either our proven, internally developed medeaLAB software or the development system MATROX Design Assistant. Together with the appropriate hardware components, we realize an image processing device tailored to your specific tasks.

Our specially designed image processing equipment is used especially in test laboratories, in quality assurance (incoming goods), but also in research facilities.
