American machine vision integrator Integro Technologies has partnered with Swiss software firm ViDi Systems in a move to broaden its vision inspection portfolio.
ViDi Systems is currently working to commercialise a deep learning-based image analysis solution dedicated to the machine vision market. The company's ViDi Suite, a field-tested software solution based on machine learning algorithms for machine vision, was shortlisted for the Vision Award at Messe Stuttgart's Vision show in November 2016.
According to Shawn Campion, president of Integro Technologies, neural networks have existed in academia for quite some time, but have not been used extensively in the vision industry.
‘Integro is eager to uncover and explore previously difficult or cost-prohibitive vision applications using ViDi software,’ Campion said. ‘ViDi has done an exceptional job generating an input classification engine to pre-select features of interest within groups of images to generate industrial solutions that save substantial engineering hours.’
Nicolas Corsi, CEO of ViDi Systems, commented: ‘Partnering with Integro Technologies is key to delivering industry leading technology and outstanding service. I am especially pleased with this new partnership with Integro Technologies as they continue to demonstrate the highest level of expertise and professionalism in delivering outstanding solutions to their customers.’
