Increased user-friendliness in latest IDS NXT Ocean
The IDS NXT ocean embedded vision platform provides customers
with all the necessary coordinated tools and workflows to realise
their own AI vision applications without prior knowledge and to
run them directly on the IDS NXT industrial cameras. The latest
free software update for the AI package is available now. The
update enhances user-friendliness, as well as focussing on making
artificial intelligence clear and comprehensible for the user.
The all-in-one system that iDS NXT ocean provides has integrated
computing power and artificial intelligence built in to the camera
thanks to the "deep ocean core" developed by IDS. It
is ideally suited for entry into AI Vision. It requires no prior
knowledge of deep learning or camera programming.
features in software update
The current software update makes setting up, deploying and controlling
the intelligent cameras in the IDS NXT cockpit even easier. For
this purpose, among other things, an Region Of Interest editor is
integrated with which users can freely draw the image areas to be
evaluated and configured. These ROI's can be saved with their parameters
and reused as custom grids.
tools for AI Transparency The new tools offer the user a window into how the AI is working
rather than it being a black-box like so many other AI tools. Attention
Maps and the Confusion Matrix illustrate how the AI works in the
cameras and what decisions it makes. This helps to clarify the process
and enables the user to evaluate the quality of a trained neural
network and to improve it through targeted retraining. Data security
also plays an important role in the industrial use of artificial
intelligence. As of the current update, communication between IDS
NXT cameras and system components can therefore be encrypted via

Rio camera with
1.6 MP Sony
NXT Rio is a fully-fledged standard industrial camera that can execute
neural networks with hardware acceleration giving inference times
of a few milliseconds thanks to the integrated, specially developed
AI core ("deep ocean core"). Thanks to features such as
C-Mount, GigE network connection with RJ45 connector, a serial RS232
interface and REST web interface, this model is ideally suited for
use in industrial environments.
the Sony global shutter CMOS sensor the camera is suitable for customers
with high demands on image quality, dynamic range and sensitivity.
It provides a resolution of 1.6 MP at 3.45 µm pixel size.
The iDS NXT Rio GS29016 is available in monochrome or colour.
Month license for
iDS NXT Lighthouse
iDS NXT Lighthouse cloud software allows those without expertise
in the area of artificial intelligence or camera programming to
train an AI classifier with their own image data. As a web application,
the necessary means to create the neural network are immediately
available, meaning you wont have to initially set up your own development
you can start on your own neural network straight away. Image processing
can take place entirely or partially on the camera FPGA, this reduces
bandwidth and computing load.
iDS NXT Ocean kit also includes:
