STEMMER IMAGING is extending its machine vision software library Common Vision Blox (CVB) with the CVB Polimago tool, which enables robust recognition rates at high speed. During the teaching phase, CVB Polimago automatically generates thousands of training images which significantly reduces the effort for the user.
Vision Technology Forum scheduled for 2016
STEMMER IMAGING’s UK Vision Technology Forum will take place on the 3rd March 2016. This is part of a series of Europe-wide Vision Technology Forums organised by STEMMER IMAGING and the European Imaging Academy and will once again be held at the Silverstone Wing Exhibition and Conference Centre in Towcester, Northamptonshire, UK.
Solving challenging imaging problems
STEMMER IMAGING’s novel Trevista Surface 50 inspection system is supplied complete with structured diffuse illumination, lens, software, PC and a 5MP Genie TS camera from Teledyne DALSA. Using a patented 'shape from shading' technology, information on the 3D shape of an object can be deduced from the shading of its surfaces. This allows defects of just a few micrometre diameter and depth to be detected on a variety of material surfaces.
Lens additions bring machine vision into sharper focus
