industrial camera with "smart phone" customisation and
Setting new standards in industrial image processing, the iDS
NXT platform is not tied to any predefined task but, instead,
allows the user to develop and install vision apps; setting up
and changing them at will and even allowing for Artificial Intelligence
The limitations of using traditional
sensors becomes evident when specialisation is needed and the
sensor's capacity for flexibility is reached.
The introduction of a new generation of vision-app devices extends
the usefulness of the old standard sensors by adding the capacity
for the user to create and install their own vision app.
for AI and Deep Learning
A specially-developed AI vision app turns these models into universal,
high-performance inference cameras with an integrated Artificial
Neural Network accelerator. The FPGA-based AI acceleration enables
inference times of a few milliseconds.
Billed as the latest in customised application imaging, the iDS
NXT models are fully-fledged industrial cameras with the added
advantage of being multifunctional devices equipped with user-created
vision apps and designed for AI and Deep Learning.
Manufacturers' strictly-defined functions with a limited range
of processing task, such as barcode reading, are not very customisable.
The NXT platform, however, is not tied to any predefined task
but allows the user to develop and install vision apps for themselves,
setting up and changing them at will. Reassuringly, app development
is user-friendly not needing additional specialist knowledge or
a great deal of learning time.
Ideally equipped for numerous tasks in
the industrial arena, using the standard manufacturer's functional
scope in combination with the user-created-and-integrated app
capability, the camera can be used in exactly the same way as
if both platforms were part of the original product.
Hailed as a pioneer in the development of industrial cameras,
the iDS NXT's vision-app capability expands application possibilities
in numerous fields, notably optical quality assurance; as an analytical
device in medical technology, face-recognition tasks or vehicle/people-counting
