MVTec Software (1E72) will introduce Halcon 18.11 and Merlic 4 software releases. Halcon 18.11 includes new deep learning functionality and expanded embedded vision capabilities. The release also provides new functions for developers.

In a live demo, an UR3e robot arm will be programmed to recognise objects in a crate using Halcon 18.11 deep learning matching technologies. Another demo will show MVTec’s standard machine vision software running on three embedded boards connected to cameras that are analysing a fast-moving object.

There will also be a demo of the HPeek system image for the Raspberry Pi. HPeek is MVTec's license-free benchmarking demo program, which is available free-of-charge and can be used to evaluate Halcon’s performance on Arm-based embedded platforms.

MVTec will also show inspection of reflective surfaces with the aid of deflectometry, whereby reflections of known patterns on the surface are evaluated to locate defects.

Merlic 4 has a new parallelisation feature that is able to run separate tools at the same time. Merlic’s deep learning OCR tool will be shown, as will the integration of a programmable logic controller into vision systems using Merlic.
