Cognex Corporation designs, develops, manufactures and markets a wide range of image-based products, all of which use artificial intelligence techniques giving them the ability to make decisions about what they see. Cognex's products include machine vision systems, machine vision sensors, and barcode readers that are used in factories and distribution centers around the world where they eliminate production and shipping errors.
The company recently announced VisionPro 10.0 and VisionPro Deep Learning 2.0, two new versions of its VisionPro vision software line.
VisionPro 10.0 is a major update to the company's market-leading PC platform that delivers faster application performance and simpler application configuration. VisionPro Deep Learning 2.0 is designed to integrate rigorously with VisionPro 10.0, allowing customers to combine deep learning and traditional vision tools in the same application.
The new versions also introduce advanced vision tools for precision calibration and inspection applications. SmartLine is the industry's first hybrid smart tool. It combines deep learning-enhanced line search for complex scenes with accurate position data from traditional vision algorithms. The new visionpro Deep Learning high-precision segmenter is designed for demanding medical and electronic applications that require accurate measurement of scratches, contamination and other defects.
"As deep learning takes a foothold in the factory, we're finding that many applications require more than traditional vision or deep learning alone – they need both for the best solution," said Joerg Kuechen, Sr. Vice President of Vision Products. The new VisionPro makes it easier for users to take advantage of the full range of powerful Cognex vision technology to tackle new and increasingly complex vision challenges. »
