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 and 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.
