Solve 3 Challenges in Image Processing
Our machine vision software "ImagePro" solves the following conventional problems.
Requiring outsourcing from AI vendors and time-consuming for in-house engineers
In the conventional approach, it takes many days from the start of outsourcing to when the project is delivered. Meetings to determine the specifications, budget setting, and even after the specifications are determined, it takes at least several months to understand the defects and operating procedures before the system can be put into normal operation. With the trial-and-error process, it only requires additional man-hours within the company.
Low accuracy with only AI or Rule-based methods
Most software only supports either "one type of AI" or "rule-based", and is not capable of implementing both AI and rule-based. With only AI the system may fail to make detailed judgments whereas with only rule-based it cannot detect not predefined defects. This leads to the difficulty to achieve ideal accuracy required onsite. Besides, the applications for using only one type of AI are limited.
The need of programming and difficult software,
and high operating cost due to the inflexibility to adapt to new workpiece on site
Conventional software uses C++ language, Python, or the manufacturer's own programming language. To support the implementation onsite, it requires the engineers to have a high level of understanding of programming in order to have readied system that is able to respond immediately when any specification changes or maintenance occurs.
What ImagePro Can Do
What is "NoCode AI Image Processing Software"?
ImagePro allows you to develop image processing programs without any programming. Instead of having to use complex software and programming languages such as C++ or Python, ImagePro helps you create everything from image processing recipes to inspection display onsite with just a few mouse clicks.
Variety of Functions
The system is equipped with a wide variety of AI, including anomaly detection and unsupervised segmentation for non-defective data learning, unsupervised segmentation and instance segmentation for defective data learning, as well as image classification, image search, character search and recognition (OCR), barcode recognition, object detection, etc. More AI function will be added through future version upgrades.
A variety of more than 150 rule-based functions in total are provided. They include positioning tools such as high-speed template matching, shape search, BLOB detection, edge detection, position correction, and object tracking; measurement tools such as distance, radius, angle, number of vertices and pixels, and histogram; color extraction, measurement, recognition, and transformation tools; and various calibrations for distortion correction and coordinate transformation.
It is also equipped with the most popular image composition function of photometric stereo and panorama merging. A rich set of more than 30 image processing tools for pre- and post-processing such as image filters, image correction, morphology transformation, binarization, and image arithmetic, are also included.
More than 60 useful functions for creating image processing recipes which include IF/SWITCH branching and variable management, loop functions, encapsulation functions, time measurement, decision conditions, and a script function that allows you to implement your own code in ImagePro.
ImagePro not only is for developing image processing recipes, but also can be used to create user display (GUI) for on-site workers. A wide variety of tools, including images, text, buttons, options for adjusting recipe parameters, and group-and-tab functions that are user-visual friendly, can be placed in the window with mouse operation to create displays.
External Communication Functions
ImagePro supports communication protocols with PLCs of major manufacturers and other general communication protocols (Ethernet IP/CIP, IO, Modbus, serial communication, TCP/UDP) with external devices such as robot arms, conveyors and external programs on servers.
