A HALCON student version and dedicated HDevelop examples are now available as supplements for the new book "Machine Vision Algorithms and Applications", written by MVTec staff. This first up-to-date textbook for machine vision software provides all the details on the theory and practical use of the relevant algorithms. The first part covers image acquisition, from illumination to bus systems, while the second deals with the algorithms themselves. The final part concentrates on applications, and features real-world examples, example code with HALCON, and further exercises. Uniting the latest research results with an industrial approach, this textbook is ideal for students of electrical engineering, physics and informatics, electrical and mechanical engineers, as well as those working in the sensor, automation and optical industries. The official book website provides registered readers with book resources (HALCON student version and example programs and images).
