MVTec presents new concept feature at the virtual trade fair „embedded world DIGITAL“

MVTec Software GmbH, a leading international software provider for machine vision, will be presenting its product portfolio at embedded world DIGITAL from March 1 to 5, 2021. Visitors to the virtual industry meeting can learn about the features of current and future releases of HALCON and MERLIC and can discuss with MVTec experts – conveniently from their PC.

Embedded vision and deep learning: demonstrations with application examples  

The performance and robustness of the products HALCON and MERLIC will be presented by MVTec experts with the help of several demonstration videos. Especially convenient for visitors: They can ask questions to the experts directly via live chat or via call function.

The presentation of MVTec MERLIC holds a concept feature that was first introduced to visitors of the virtual MVTec Innovation Day on February 3: anomaly detection. Using the example of an inspection of printed circuit boards a demo will demonstrate how the all-in-one software can drastically simplify the use of complex deep learning algorithms.

One of the highlights will also be the new version of the standard software MVTec HALCON. Among other things, HALCON 20.11 includes a unique new deep learning feature: edge extraction. An illustrative demonstration will show how edges that could not be identified with conventional edge detection filters can now be extracted robustly using this method. Edge extraction can be trained with only a few images, which greatly reduces the programming effort.

The Embedded Vision Starterkit, a joint demo with Allied Vision Technologies GmbH, will demonstrate how to get started quickly with the development of embedded vision applications.

Live presentations: embedded vision in theory and practice

MVTec will also participate in the supporting program at the virtual trade fair. Christoph Wagner, Product Manager for Embedded Vision and Technical Product Manager MERLIC, will hold a presentation titled “The Best of Both Worlds: Rule-based Systems and AI for Embedded Vision“ at the embedded world conference on March 5 from 12:00 to 12:30 p.m. (CET). MVTec will also offer a presentation on "MVTec’s Deep Learning Spectrum" at the accompanying embedded world Exhibitors' Forum.
