VC Smart Finder software scales objects and reliably matches them with preset patterns irrespective of their distance from the sensor, even if they are 80% occluded.

VC Smart Finder software scales objects and reliably matches them with preset patterns irrespective of their distance from the sensor, even if they are 80% occluded. It operates in real time with ±0.1 pixel positioning
accuracy and ±0.3° angle accuracy. At 640 × 480 pixel resolution, it recognizes between 10 and 100 objects per second.

VC Smart Finder update: Enhanced software library for contour-based object recognition

Ettlingen – Vision Components’ VC Smart Finder software library has proven itself as a powerful pattern matching tool in various manufacturing applications, e.g. sorting and bulk material recognition. Now, the machine vision expert presents an enhanced version with optimized parameters, which scales objects and reliably matches them with preset patterns irrespective of their distance from the sensor.

The software allows users to identify structures (e.g. bottle labels or complex components) by means of preset patterns. The real-time program operates with subpixel accuracy: ±0.1 pixels positioning accuracy, ±0.3 degrees angle accuracy. At the same time, VC Smart Finder ensures high-speed processes: at a 640 × 480 pixel resolution, it recognizes between 10 and 100 objects per second. Irrespective of rotational position, object size or illumination, it matches objects with one or more patterns. Moreover, the software reliably recognizes objects which are up to 80% occluded. An intuitive, easy-to-use teach-in option allows users to easily include new objects.
