MVTec Presents New Concept Feature at the embedded world DIGITAL

MVTec Software 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 from their PC.

The products HALCON and MERLIC will be presented by MVTec experts with the help of demonstration videos. 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 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 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 reduces the programming effort.

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

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.
