HALCON for Raspberry Pi

Raspberry Pi is the ideal entry platform for embedded vision applications due to its high flexibility and low initial costs. On this embedded board, MVTec HALCON can be tested fast and easily using the demo program HPeek, which gives you an overview about typical embedded machine vision applications. Included are applications like code reading, OCR, matching, etc. and deep-learning-based applications like classification, object detection and semantic segmentation – all can smoothly be evaluated while being executed directly on the Raspberry Pi. Moreover you can use HPeek to run custom scripts. There is no need for compiling HALCON to the Raspberry Pi.


Ready for HALCON
  • Ideal entry platform for programming own applications
  • Flexible & cost-efficient
  • HPeek based on HDevEngine
  • Execution of custom scripts (purchased license necessary)
  • Image acquisition interfaces: GigEVision, USB3Vision, Video4Linux, MIPI CSI etc.


HALCON for Raspberry Pi devices is available via MVTec Distributors.


The new HALCON 22.11 release comes in a Steady edition and a Progress edition. With HALCON 22.11, MVTec once more demonstrate that the targeted use of deep learning raises existing machine vision technologies to a new level. The 3D Gripping Point Detection, for example, offers an easy way to efficiently automate a complex application. With the new editions, MVTec is once again delivering on their promise to provide users with one of the world's most powerful and technologically advanced machine vision software solutions.

Working with HALCON on a Raspberry Pi

HALCON’s integrated library HDevEngine allows to make changes to the vision part of your applications „on the fly“ – no need to recompile or recertify the whole application. Beside that, using HALCON’s development environment HDevelop enables remote-debugging, as demonstrated in the video:
