Scorpion Version X is here!

Oslo, Norway October 26, 2012

Tordivel AS announces a new major release of Scorpion Vision Software® with focus on 3D Machine Vision and Microsoft Windows 8.0.

The major goal of Version X is to support our vision:

“Locate moving 3D objects in real-time”.

Tordivel’s continuing and unalterable requirement on making advanced mechanisms available and usable has again evolved with build # 532 since the initial release of Scorpion in 2000.

Scorpion Vision support Windows-8 has a new improved Metro Look

We have updated and improved the Scorpion Vision in Metro style to make Scorpion more usable and to be able to make a compact and friendly user interface with the minimum effort.

Simulation based on 3D Models reduces deployment cost and development time

The Version X release has the accumulated industrial strength and the extensive results from a series of large 3D Machine Vision R&D projects started in 2006. The latest project Scorpion 3D Modelling has resulted in a technology that makes it possible to simulate 3D Stereo Vision based on 3D Models. This reduces risk, deployment cost and installation time for Scorpion 3D Stinger based solution in many industries. The technology is available to Scorpion Vision Software partners with the release of version X.

Extended by powerful Scorpion Tool Components

With the launch of Version X we are proud to announce that more 25 Scorpion Tool Components are available with set of powerful 2D and 3D tools and other useful components. This speeds up and uniforms the creation of Scorpion Vision profiles. Tordivel will supply more than 50 new Scorpion Tool Components in the coming months – this will benefit Version X users and make them even more competitive. We want user feedback and will develope all the STC in tight cooperation with our users and partners.

We offer IPR protection through component licensing with Scorpion Vision SDK

The STCs are created with the Scorpion Vision SDK. The development kit enables the user to quickly develop tools and utilities that can be reused and protected with own license. Also integrated in the SDK is a complete machine vision GUI builder where the finest custom interface is developed without any programming.

Make the best OEM platform with Scorpion Vision Apps 2.0

We have improved the Scorpion Vision Apps to continue to lower the integration cost of machine vision in manufacturing. The user configures the App by point and click on custom configuration pages.  The user screen is compact and easy to understand. The Scorpion Vision Apps are based on 2D or 3D machine vision. The open architecture of Scorpion Version X makes it easy to package OpenCV, Numpy and SciPy based systems in a professional Vision App.

Runs on any PC – updated over the Internet

It is easy to try and evaluate Scorpion Vision Software, Scorpion Vision Apps and Scorpion 3D Stinger solutions. The premium installer is available with 30 days free trial licences from the TordivelBlog where you can get inspired and the best advice in making your machine vision app. Scorpion Vision turns any PC with a camera into a professional machine vision solution.

Scorpion Vision Software® Concept

Scorpion Vision Software provides powerful image processing for 2D and 3D applications without the need of programming skills. Machine Solutions and Scorpion Vision Apps are developed in a user friendly graphical user interface that can be customized to show various amounts of information and controls to the operator. A number of different image analysis tools are available with user selectable outputs. This allows for rapid development from the simplest to the most complex image analysis tasks. The Scorpion Tool Components extends the Scorpion Toolbox with OpenCV, Numpy, SciPy or other image processing modules.

The user interface also has built-in statistics and logging capabilities making it ideal for process control and integrating with manufacturing database systems. Scorpion Vision Software® is an extremely robust and accurate 2D and 3D machine vision framework including: integrated python development, 2D toolbox of 100 tools, 2D and 3D visualization, 3D toolbox containing 50 tools, extremely accurate 3D stereo vision, a nice tool set for 3D point cloud processing.

Scorpion Vision Software® is an independent and open software tool. The system gives the user the choice of a small form factor of an embedded PC, a SmartCam or the power of an Industrial PC multi-core 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 multi core CPU, low cost – high quality firewire/usb/GigE cameras and the possibility of connecting multiple cameras to one PC.

The Scorpion Stinger family of hardware components is compatible with Scorpion Vision Software. Scorpion solves tasks within 2D and 3D robot vision, label inspection, assembly verification, color identification and gauging.
