VC Smart Finder software library

Share this on social media:

Vision Components has updated its VC Smart Finder software library, a powerful pattern matching tool suited to various manufacturing applications, such as sorting and bulk material recognition. The enhanced version has optimised parameters, which scales objects and reliably matches them with preset patterns irrespective of their distance from the sensor.

The software allows users to identify structures (e.g. bottle labels or complex components) by means of preset patterns. The real-time program operates with subpixel accuracy: ±0.1 pixels positioning accuracy, ±0.3 degrees angle accuracy. At the same time, VC Smart Finder ensures high-speed processes: at a 640 x 480 pixel resolution, it recognises between 10 and 100 objects per second. Irrespective of rotational position, object size or illumination, it matches objects with one or more patterns. Moreover, the software reliably recognises objects that are up to 80 per cent occluded. An intuitive, easy-to-use teach-in option allows users to easily include new objects.
