HALCON Embedded Running on VC Smart Cameras

POSTED 01/30/2013

HALCON Embedded runs on smart cameras from Vision Components.The machine vision software HALCON was ported by MVTec for cameras from Vision Components (VC). From now on, HALCON Embedded runs on VC smart cameras and brings new possibilities to the machine vision market.

HALCON is the comprehensive standard software with IDE for machine vision and is used worldwide in many industries. HALCON?s flexible software architecture enables fast application development to solve the demands of industrial and medical imaging.

For optimal integration to the VC smart camera series, MVTec ported the complete HALCON 11 software library. The development of the application can be done conveniently on a standard PC. After uploading, the machine vision application runs on the smart camera and is able to use HALCON?s entire machine vision functionality.

Smart cameras are widely used for quality and process control in industrial manufacturing lines. Smart cameras from VC provide sufficient computing power and direct communication interfaces. The combination of robust hardware from VC and the general-purpose and reliable HALCON software from MVTec provides a powerful all?around package for modern machine vision.
