1D Measuring

Featured in HALCON and MERLIC
1D Measuring
Inspect the distances between the blades of a fan.

The powerful algorithms of MVTec’s software measure between edges along lines or arc segments performing subpixel-accurate measurements in less than a millisecond. Using gray-value calibration, even non-linear gray-value responses can be compensated to achieve highest accuracy.

2D Measuring

Featured in HALCON and MERLIC
2D Measuring
Subpixle accurate high precision measuring.
2D Measuring
Segmenting edges in color images.

Fitting an ellipse to a subpixel contour output of an edge filter allows you to achieve the highest measurement precision. The software’s metrology model automatically extracts contour data from images with more than one channel, e. g., from color images.

3D Measuring

Featured in HALCON
3D Measuring
3D measurement of rectangles with only one camera.
3D Measuring
Segmentation and fitting of 3D primitives allows accurate measurement of simple geometric bodies.

Outstanding algorithms of MVTec products reconstruct the disparity or distance images or 3D coordinates of surfaces using many different methods such as binocular, multi-view and photometric stereo, sheet of light, and depth from focus. You can also determine the 3D pose of circles and rectangles easily with only one camera. The segmentation and fitting of 3D primitives allows accurate measurement of, e.g., cylinders, spheres, and planes.
