Enhance vision inspection with a software-defined approach

Posted: 19 Nov 2009 ?? ?Print Version ?Bookmark and Share

Keywords:LabVIEW? vision inspection? versatile machine vision?

In the past, machine vision solutions have always been relegated to a niche group of vision experts who were tasked to create solutions specific to customers' needs. These solutions are invariably difficult to maintain, and most of the time, rigidly unmodifiable.

Today, customers' requirements on machine vision and image processing technology have changed. A growing number of customers, end users and machine vision system integrators alike are all looking for flexible, powerful and easy-to-maintain vision software that can be easily integrated with existing vision hardware.

Improvements in vision technology have made vision hardware selection an easy process. A wide selection of camera and efficient drivers has allowed image acquisitions to be simplified. Now, vision engineers face the challenges of creating customizable yet powerful software applications in less time.

This article aims to teach engineers how to harness the power of today's advance computing technologies (i.e. multi-core CPUs and high-bandwidth memory) for vision analysis and processing using LabVIEW; architect vision inspection programs that powerful yet easy to understand; and use interactive tools to create versatile machine vision inspection programs that are easily maintainable and upgradeable.
