MVTec HALCON 19.11: Standard Machine Vision Software With New Functions

MVTec Software GmbH will release HALCON 19.11, the latest version of its standard software HALCON, on November 15. The release will include many new and improved functions that advance the level of machine vision technology available to OEMs, integrators, and end-users worldwide.

For example, HALCON’s anomaly detection allows deep-learning-based inspection tasks to be implemented more efficiently, since only a few images of defect-free objects are required to train the deep learning network. The technology is then able to unerringly and independently localise deviations, i.e., defects of any type, on subsequent images. This means, defects of varying appearance can be detected without any previous knowledge or any labeling efforts in advance.
In addition, HALCON’s new generic box finder is able to determine the exact position and size of arbitrary boxes within 3D point clouds. Thus, it is no longer necessary to train a model for every box size. This greatly simplifies the development and support of applications commonly used by the logistics and pharmaceutical industries.

Reading data codes up to three times faster
Another innovation is that ECC-200 data codes in multi-core systems are now read much more rapidly. Reading is up to three times faster, which also increases usability on embedded systems. Furthermore, hard-to-read data codes can now be recognised more robustly.
Another new development in HALCON 19.11 is the ability to import deep learning models in ONNX (Open Neural Network Exchange) format. This allows developers to use an even broader range of deep learning networks within HALCON. In addition, the MVTec experts have added a new model for line scan cameras with telecentric lenses to HALCON.

New machine vision features available within a short period of time
“With HALCON 19.11, the latest release of the HALCON Progress Edition, we will offer many new and improved machine vision features within a period of only six months. We have emphasised the further integration of groundbreaking deep learning functions. In addition, we have greatly improved our tried-and-tested core technologies, for example for reading data codes or for 3D machine vision,” explains Johannes Hiltner, product manager HALCON at MVTec.

MVTec: Halcon 18.11 Machine Vision Software

MVTec Software GmbH has launched the new version 18.11 of its standard software Halcon. It offers new and expanded options for embedded vision as well as updated USB3 Vision interfaces. In addition, core technologies will be further improved.

For developers, the new version provides helpful innovations and valuable new features in Halcon’s integrated development environment HDevelop.

The new Halcon 18.11 release comes in two editions: Steady and Progress. While the latter is available as a subscription with a six-month release cycle, the Steady edition—as successor of Halcon 13—is offered for regular purchase.
