Important features and enhancements with Scorpion Vision Software 8.1 are:
a.. Faster dynamic polygons
b.. CircleSegmenter is the best tool for counting and stereo vision feature location
c.. PolygonMatch3 replaces both PM and PM2 with powerful search capabilities
d.. All PolygonMatch tools are enhanced with fundamental features like max threshold and individual polygon constraints. This significantly improves sensitivity, accuracy and robustness for Scorpion solutions.
e.. Support for Sick Ranger and Ruler 3D Cameras
f.. Improved Blob4 clustering features - important in surface inspection
Scorpion Vision Software 8.1 provides the most accurate and robust 3D Bin Picking based on stereo vision. The image shows an example.

New Advanced 3D Tutorial - Creating 3D Point Clouds using Laser Triangulation
We are pleased to announce a new tutorial showing how to create high accuracy 3D images in Scorpion using laser triangulation.
a.. Creating 3D Point Clouds using Laser Trangulation
Scorpion Vision Software is an independent and open software tool for industrial vision. The library approach of making machine vision solutions is old-fashioned. PC-based rapid application development tools like Scorpion for 2D and 3D machine vision produce better and more reliable applications — five to 100 times faster from idea to working application than systems based on a standard library approach. Scorpion Vision Software gives the user the choice of a small form factor of an embedded PC, a Sony SmartCam or the power of a multicore PC. The system is founded on top of a standard Windows XP/Vista/7 PC platform. It is cost effective benefitting from the processing power of the multicore CPU, the low cost and high quality firewire, usb and GigE cameras and the possibility of connecting multiple cameras to one PC. Scorpion solves tasks within robot vision, label inspection, assembly verification, color identification and gauging.
