FEBRUARY 12, 2009--The pattern-matching tool VC Smart Finder allows users to identify structures (e.g., bottle labels or complex components) by means of preset patterns. The real-time program, which operates with subpixel accuracy, recognizes between 10 and 100 objects per second at a 640 x 480-pixel resolution for high-speed processes. Object recognition is not influenced by rotational position, object size, or illumination. The software reliably recognizes objects that are occluded by up to 80%. A teach-in option allows users to include new objects.

PRESS RELEASE

Contour-based object recognition:
VC Smart Finder from Vision Components

Ettlingen - At this year's VISION trade show, Vision Components will present new software solutions for industrial image processing applications, such as the pattern matching tool VC Smart Finder. The software allows users to identify structures (e.g. bottle labels or complex components) by means of preset pat-terns. The real-time program, which operates with subpixel accuracy, ensures high-speed processes: it recognizes between 10 and 100 objects per second at a 640 x 480 Pixel resolution. Object recognition is not influenced by rotational position, object size or illumination. Moreover, the software reliably recognizes objects which are occluded by up to 80%. An intuitive, easy-to-use teach-in option allows users to include new objects.

Company Background
Vision Components GmbH was founded in 1996 by Michael Engel, inventor of the first intelligent camera for industrial applications. Today, it is a leading supplier in the field of industrial image processing. The Ettlingen-based company develops and distributes intelligent, network-compatible real time cameras. Due to their proprietary multitasking operating system VCRT, the devices oper-ate without an additional PC, making them easy to integrate into almost any industrial facility. Typical application areas include quality and completeness checks, measurement technology and biometric access control.
