"[I] knew the [MIL] String Reader module could do the hard work. It's a step to go from a static vehicle to a moving vehicle. We had to be more careful about the [MIL string reader format] file's contents without a database of pre-authorized vehicles, and we had to adjust the sensitivity to get accurate readings with fewer frames. But these changes were easy to make because of the [String Reader] graphical user interface."

License-plate recognition grants drivers access to business site.

Innovative intelligent video system brings aquatic safety to the 21st century.

"Detecting someone in trouble is entirely vision-based, that is, it's the results of passing the algorithms on the images that tell us when someone is having difficulty in the water. [With algorithms that detect the difference between someone who is bobbing above the water and falling under the water], we compare the images acquired from overhead and underwater [Matrox] cameras, and using all these ways we can tell that someone is in trouble."

New vision system inspects the tiny and the weightless.

"The Matrox Imaging Library (MIL) is ideal for us because it has all the functionality we require. MIL offers many possibilities for [the] types of measurements [required for complex vision recognition and inspection functions.] The Metrology module figures prominently in the solution, and is used for finding dimensions and checking tolerances, complex operations that are processing-intensive.”

Today at the Vision 2005 show in Stuttgart, Germany, Matrox Imaging is announcing the newest release of its Matrox Inspector software development tool. 

Founded in the early 1980s, X-Tek was originally conceived as a custom design facility for microfocus x-ray systems.

Matrox Imaging smoothes out knots in wood inspection.

"The blob analysis functions provide many input measurements that are easy to calculate and easily accessed within our program. Measurements that are not needed are easily removed and don't add to the processing time. Having access to the blob (defect) location allows us to make our own specialized measurements when necessary. In-depth investigation of MIL showed us that the MIL Blob Analysis module would solve our need to measure defects and supply data to our Neural Network Classifier.”
