STEMMER IMAGING will be showing an OPC UA tool on an embedded vision system. This features an ARM-based NVidia Jetson TK1 board running STEMMER IMAGING’s Common Vision Blox (CVB) machine vision software, connected to a JAI GO camera. Building upon the VDMA’s OPC UA specification for vision systems, this new tool will allow vision systems to adopt a common architecture within an OPC UA open standard network, while being open enough to let individual features be applied. The demonstration interlinks a PLC, the vision system and a turntable, to allow the selection and movement of a particular component.
The 3D braille reading system uses STEMMER IMAGING’s machine learning-based pattern matching tool, CVB Polimago, to translate a height map of braille bumps into readable characters. A 3D camera from Automation Technology generates the height map from the braille bumps on the boxes as they pass through the system. CVB 3D Tools are used to create and display a 3D model from the height map image. At the same time, Gocator 2340C intelligent line profilers from LMI measure the total volume of the bumps on each box.
A conveyor-belt demonstration featuring a Boa 2 smart camera and Boa Spot IDE vision sensor from Teledyne DALSA will show barcode, 2D Datamatrix code and OCR capabilities on a variety of boxes. This highlights DALSA’s brand new high speed, high performance code reading algorithm and the cameras will also be individually filtered to read only from boxes of a specific colour.
