HALCON – The power of machine vision
MVTec HALCON is the comprehensive standard software for machine vision with an integrated development environment (HDevelop) that is used worldwide. It enables cost savings and improved time to market. HALCON’s flexible architecture facilitates rapid development of any kind of machine vision application.
MVTec HALCON provides outstanding performance and a comprehensive support of multi-core platforms and special instruction sets like AVX2 or NEON, as well as GPU acceleration. It serves all industries (including the industrial internet of things), with a library used in hundreds of thousands of installations in all areas of imaging like blob analysis, morphology, matching, measuring, identification, and 3D vision.
The software secures your investment by supporting a wide range of operating systems and providing interfaces to hundreds of industrial cameras and frame grabbers, in particular by supporting standards like GenICam, GigE Vision, and USB3 Vision. By default, MVTec HALCON runs on Arm®-based smart cameras and other embedded vision platforms. It can also be ported to various microprocessors/DSPs, operating systems, and compilers. Thus, the software is ideally suited for the use within embedded systems.
