Version 9.0 of the machine vision software Halcon from MVTec, has been developed to run on the next generation of Sony's smart cameras (XCI-V100/C and XCI-SX100/C).
Halcon's flexible architecture facilitates rapid development of machine vision, medical imaging, and image analysis applications. For an optimised integration of Halcon 9.0 into the Sony XCI smart camera series, MVTec has developed a powerful image acquisition interface. Thus, the entire camera functionality is available for Halcon users, such as control of automatic white balance and the use of all digital in-/outputs. By using Windows XP Embedded on the camera, application development can be carried out on the smart camera, as well as on a standard PC.
