MVTec presenting deep learning portfolio at SPS IPC Drives

SPS IPC Drives

Machine vision software provider MVTec Software (Munich, Germany) will present its portfolio at SPS IPC Drives in Nuremberg from November 28 to 30.

The new releases of HALCON 17.12 and MERLIC 3 will be on show at the VDMA pavilion at booth 151 in Hall 3A, with a focus on the innovative deep learning functionality.

The new HALCON version offers a large selection of standardized functions for the immediate application of deep learning. Users can now train Convolutional Neural Networks (CNNs) on their own with a reasonable effort and expense. In-depth machine vision knowledge is not required.

In addition, said MVTec, companies can also save time and money for programming. Through sample applications, visitors can experience this feature live at the booth and can learn more about deep learning by watching a recently produced video presentation.

The features of the current version MERLIC 3 will also be presented at the booth. MVTec said that thanks to their software, it is now even easier, more comfortable and more user-friendly to create professional applications for machine vision.

To demonstrate this, a practical example is highlighted in an exciting live demo, showing how new machine vision functions optimize optical character recognition (OCR) applications. MERLIC 3 can use cutting-edge deep learning technologies to precisely detect various fonts on packaging, such as expiry dates, or batch numbers. What’s more, the demo also provides viewers with insights into how MERLIC can be used to seamlessly integrate a programmable logic controller (PLC) and view the remote front end on a mobile platform.
