3D Multispectral Food Grader
Tordivel AS announces a new major release of Scorpion Vision Software with focus on usability, 3D Machine Vision, Open-Source and OEM integration. Tordivel's unalterable requirement on making advanced mechanisms available and usable has again evolved into a new and even higher level of elegance with the introduction of Scorpion Vision Apps. Extensive 3D Machine Vision R&D from 2006The 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 AutoCast with the goal to automate the casting industry, sponsored by the Norwegian Research Council and coordinated by Jøtul AS, has proven the Scorpion Vision Software platform and resulted in Scorpion 3D Stinger for Robot Vision. The system is proven for 3D Bin Picking in the Casting Industry.
The cost effective and easy to use technology has already been put to use in a series of demanding 3D Robot Vision and 3D gauging projects using the Scorpion Vision Software platform.
New Scorpion SDKThe enhanced Scorpion SDK enables System Integrators and OEM users to quickly make their own licensed and protected component extensions, Scorpion Tool Components, with Scorpion Vision Software and to create the finest Scorpion Vision Apps.
Scorpion Vision is a wide open platform for Open-Source Development and Custom Machine Vision ProcessingThe combination of the Scorpion SDK and the Scorpion Open Source license is the shortest route from Open Source machine vision to industrial strength solutions.The Scorpion Tool Components are based on the embedded Python Framework and implemented in the new generic BaseTool. The components are developed based on any algorithm platform. Typical platforms or code bases can be OpenCV 1.x or 2.x, NumPy, SciPy, Arrlib or the the user's own algorithm developed in C or C++.
Scorpion Vision AppsWe invented the new Scorpion Vision Apps to lower the integration cost of machine vision in manufacturing. A Scorpion Vision App is developed by an experienced machine vision engineer using the Scorpion SDK. It is deployed by an automation engineer or an end-user. It is easy to install. 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.
