MVTec Software has launched a new maintenance release of its machine vision standard software Halcon 11. This release, Halcon 11.0.1, fixes bugs and offers improved features.
The new release is able to read multiple types of barcodes, with greater robustness and faster. Furthermore, the barcode reader can now identify slanted codes and its memory consumption has been reduced. Halcon’s data code reader also now consumes less memory.
With the new maintenance release, the Halcon integrated development environment, HDevelop, has been extended with an inspection window for 3D object models. The software can therefore visualise a 3D object model and view various properties of it.
The Halcon codelet classes have been extended with two new classes that provide functionality to acquire and display images. They can be used as templates for new .NET applications or directly within newly developed code.
In addition, the 11.0.1 release has been extended with HDevelop example programs for image acquisition interfaces that grab 3D data. These HDevelop example programs show how to generate 3D object models from the acquired 3D data.
