Embedded Vision Starterkit with Allied Vision Alvium and MVTec HALCON

The Embedded Vision Starterkit is the ideal starting point for machine vision on embedded vision platforms. The starter kit consists of Allied Vision’s innovative Alvium 1500 C CSI-2 camera and a demo consisting of various machine vision applications based on MVTec HALCON.

This device is powered by HALCON


  • Thanks to plug-and-play design, the preset image processing applications can be tried out directly
  • The combination of CSI-2 camera, image processing software and NVIDIA's Jetson platform is ideal for porting machine vision applications to embedded systems
  • Especially for deep learning applications, the NVIDIA Jetson platform with JetPack SDK and its integrated GPU achieves significantly lower inference times than with a CPU

Fast success with integrated solution

The Embedded Vision Starterkit is an ideally coordinated complete package of hardware and software:


  • MVTec HALCON* (in the form of a browser-based demo application and executable without an additional license)
  • Installed MIPI CSI-2 Alvium camera driver
  • Preconfigured SD card image

* With the starter kit, users can run the preinstalled application examples. Developing custom applications using HALCON's extensive toolbox is possible with a development license of MVTec HALCON (not included).
