HALCON 13 masters complex 3D- inspection tasks
This powerful machine vision software masters all demanding areas of imaging such as postion recognition and object identification, code reading and print-quality inspection - all complex, 3D machine vision tasks.


HALCON not only provides interfaces to a large number of cameras and frame grabbers but also supports the most common standards, operating systems and programming languages and
serves all industries with a powerful library which includes a comprehensive variety of operators. Its highly-interactive development programme, HDevelop, enables the building of image-processing solutions fast and efficiently, resulting in cost-savings and a quicker time to market.


HALCON guarantees hardware independence by providing interfaces to hundreds of industrial cameras and frame grabbers and also for standards like GenICam, GigE Vision, USB3 Vision, and IIDC 1394.

HALCON's sample-based identification is capable of differentiating a large number of items and can recognize trained objects solely based on characteristic features like colour or texture. Consequently, there is no need to use special imprints like bar codes or data codes for object identification purposes; the user merely needing to train the software to identify objects from several different directions.

HALCON revolutionary technolgies offer a variety of 3D vision methods, and, in particular, the 3D surface comparison between expected and measured shape of a 3D object surface is an outstanding technology of the software. The object's surface can be reconstructed by any 3D technology available in HALCON such as multi-view stereo, sheet of light, or by ready-to-run 3D hardware scanners (also directly supported by Halcon). Additionally, improved photometric stereo is offered for special use in surface inspection.

Provided are many methods for 3D object processing, such as registration and triangulation of point clouds, calculation of features like shape and volume, segmentation of point clouds by cutting planes, and many more, all supported by GPU processing. HALCON automatically splits the data into multiple threads running on all available processing cores and then merges the output into one result with no input required from the user. Likewise, depth from focus, Fast Fourier Transformation, and HALCON’s local deformable matching are significantly accelerated.

Highlights of HALCON 13      




SPEEDUP
Speedups of more than 300% can be achieved on machines with AVX2-compatible processors, HALCON 13 also offers significant speedups for all related technologies, i.e., shape-based 3D matching, local and perspective deformable matching, and component-based matching.
  DIRECT DEBUGGING
HDevEngine applications can now be de­bugged directly, making error tracking much easier. HDevelop can be connected to an HDevEngine application running on a different computer for remote debugging. This functionality is also extremely useful for debugging HALCON Embedded devices such as smart cameras.
   
3D MATCHING AND 3D RECONSTRUCTION
An improved surface-based 3D matching has has made HALCON 13 more robust when dealing with flat surfaces. Viewing formation, simylataneiously from multiple cameras leads to a more robust reconstruction than was possible using previous stereo methods.
TEXTURE INSPECTION
Different object characteristics make texture inspection a challenge. HALCON 13's easy-to-use texture inspection took is configured by simply passing some traiing images, the algorithm then automatically adjusting the necessary parameters based on training images that show flawless texture.

IMPROVED IDENTIFICATION TECHNOLOGIES
New deep-learning technology achieves higher reading rates than with previous classification methods. HALCON 13's automatic text reader is faster and now also supports reading of dot print characters and barcodes even if large parts of the code are either defective or not visible. Dealing with blur and distortion is now easier.
