Machine and robot guidance employs vision software to accurately locate and determine the pose of objects and features; great repeatability is crucial for guiding automated fabrication and manufacturing using machines and industrial robots. Intensity and geometric-based pattern-recognition tools are key aspects of the software.
Matrox 4Sight EV7 are industrial computers built on a twelve-core processor that includes acceleration for deep learning inference or prediction. A fanless design with multiple ports for GigE Vision and USB3 Vision cameras makes these vision controllers right at home keeping watch over one or more production lines.
Matrox GevIQ are smart network interface cards (NICs) offering generic GigE Vision acquisition offload at speeds up to 25 Gigabits/s per port. These add-in boards provide a more versatile and widely compatible alternative to custom-built or proprietary solutions based on 10+ GbE.
