JUNE 23, 2009--With DirectX 9 available on many computers, SensorDesk (Newark, NJ, USA; www.sensordesk.com) has introduced its Vision System Designer 1.0 software, specifically for planning, simulation, and analysis of machine-vision and imaging applications. This will allow vision system designers to start their designs in a virtual 3-D environment by modeling and combining various lenses, cameras, and light sources.

By modeling the vision system and integrating a model of the product to be imaged, developers are able to view simulated images of the objects as seen by the sensor. The software can also calculate various performance characteristics, which show, for example, at different points the resolution, motion blur, or perspective distortions.

In contrast to a laboratory setup, the Vision System Designer software can automatically visualize annotations, such as the 3-D-bounding box of the view volume that combines field of view and depth of field.
