Easy access for machine vision

MVTec Software GmbH, together with its partners AAEON Technology Inc. and Basler AG, presents an easy-to-use machine vision bundle with integrated deep learning technologies.

Called the "UP Squared Pro AI Vision Development Kit," the bundle is ready to use upon delivery and is designed for a wide range of potential applications. "With the UP Squared Pro AI Vision Development Kit, we offer users from all industries the opportunity to take their first steps with Machine Vision and Deep Learning. We believe in breaking down any inhibitions regarding the use of these innovative technologies and raising awareness of the many benefits," said Owen Wei, Marketing and BDM Manager at AAEON.

The three partners have contributed their innovative technologies to the bundle: AAEON provides the UP Squared Pro system with the AI Core XM, an AI acceleration module that includes two Intel Movidius Myriad X VPUs, Basler supplies the plug-and-play USB 3.0 area scan camera Pulse including matching accessories, and MVTec contributes MERLIC 5, an easy-to-use image processing software with deep learning technologies such as anomaly detection and classification.

Users can also update free of charge to the forthcoming Merlic 5.1 version and benefit from additional features such as Deep OCR. Christoph Wagner, Technical Product Manager Merlic at MVTec, adds: "With Merlic 5, we are including intuitive and easy-to-use image processing software in the bundle. Users thus benefit from very fast and smooth access to state-of-the-art deep learning technologies without having to write a line of code themselves. It doesn't get any easier than that."

Quick and easy entry into Deep Learning

The bundle can be used as an optimal Deep Learning entry package for all conceivable machine vision applications. Users can easily create a wide variety of machine vision applications via "drag-and-drop". The focus is on gaining experience with Deep Learning technologies. At the same time, the bundle can also be used in the production system at any time - across all industries, from electronics manufacturing and the food industry to mechanical engineering. The solution will be available in AAEON's webshop from May 3, 2022.
