Matrox Design Assistant 4

Have you been given the mandate to develop a vision or inspection system?

If yes, you should attend this intensive 3 day training where you will learn how to quickly and easily configure and deploy vision applications by constructing a flowchart instead of writing traditional program code. At this training you'll also learn how to set up the operator view (HMI), choose the best analysis and processing tools for your application, and interface to automation equipment like PLCs all within Matrox Design Assistant's integrated development environment (IDE). One-on-one time with our developers and "hands-on" workshops will guarantee that you leave the training knowing how to solve real-world applications.

This intensive course provides:

In-depth training on Matrox Design Assistant tools/features:

  • Pattern recognition
  • Feature extraction and analysis
  • 1D and 2D measurements
  • Color analysis
  • Character recognition
  • 1D and 2D code reading and verification
  • Calibration
  • Basic image processing
