VC Smart Finder
Vision Components has introduced its pattern matching tool VC Smart Finder, a software solution for industrial image processing applications. The software allows users to identify structures (e.g. bottle labels or complex components) by means of preset patterns.
The real-time program, which operates with sub-pixel accuracy, ensures high-speed processing: it recognises between 10 and 100 objects per second at a 640 x 480 pixel resolution. Object recognition is not influenced by rotational position, object size or illumination. Moreover, the software reliably recognises objects which are occluded by up to 80 per cent. An intuitive, easy-to-use teach-in option allows users to include new objects.
