LMI Technologies has released version 4.1 of its HexSight software for high accuracy recognition and metrology. HexSight 4.1 software adds further support for colour image processing and hardware acceleration and now supports Sony intelligent cameras.
HexSight's geometric pattern recognition technology offers flexible and reliable contour-based identification of objects unaffected by scale, orientation, lighting, occlusion, clutter, contrast reversal, or even subtle colour variation. After finding objects, HexSight delivers a flexible set of metrology tools to measure and confirm that the parts meet key tolerances.
To maximise capabilities of the software, HexSight 4.1 incorporates a wide range of third party camera and frame grabber support. The latest release adds support for fully compliant GigE Vision cameras, adding to the current capability to work with any IEEE 1394 (FireWire) and USB camera that uses a DirectShow driver.
HexSight 4.1 is ideal for a vast array of machine vision challenges including road sign detection, solar wafer inspection, shirt tag location and analyses, optical character recognition, brake pad inspection, part sorting and sizing plus many other applications.
