MVTec Software GmbH plans to launch a new version (22.11) of its HALCON machine vision toolbox on November 22, 2022. New functionality includes 3D Gripping Point Detection, which detects surfaces on objects suitable for gripping with suction, such as in bin picking applications. The feature eliminates the need to train the software on object surfaces. The company also added a new data type, memory block, which stores and transfers binary data in HALCON and further process it with other applications, increasing HALCON’s compatibility with machine vision communication protocols. The toolbox also has an option to encrypt serialized data, improving security. In addition, the new version sheds light on deep learning’s “black box” through Guided GradCam. This feature provides a heat map highlighting the regions of an image that the deep learning network used in its decision-making. HALCON 22.11 supports HAILO AI acceleration hardware to execute deep learning inferences. Finally, users can license HALCON via a network, allowing developers to share a predefined number of licenses using a network connection.
