How to Compare Dataflow-based Machine Vision Software?
There are several dataflow-based software tools now appearing on the machine vision market. How to know whether Adaptive Vision Studio 4.1 is the right choice for you? First of all, please keep in mind that ease of use is only one of several important factors. Real projects require tools that are not only easy to use, but also capable of solving challenging problems. Below you will find a list of advanced features of Adaptive Vision Studio 4.1, which make it the most advanced graphical environment for machine vision engineers.
- Reusable subprograms (macrofilters)
You need to be able to organize programs into small, easy-to-understand portions.
- Conditional processing
What happens if you need to execute different parts of the program depending on some condition?
- Multiple objects
Can you detect and analyse multiple objects on a single image?
- Nested loops
Sometimes you will need to explicitly cycle through some possible parameter values. Will that be possible?
- Large programs and big picture visualization
Is it not only possible, but also convenient, to work with growing projects?
- HMI Designer
Machine vision application is most often not only the algorithm, but also a custom human-machine interface. You need both.
- Multiple configurable data previews
Can you have multiple views, e.g. for multiple cameras or for alternative methods that you are trying to compare?
- Importing C++ code
Are you able to extend the software with special functions like support for non-standard hardware or specific report generation?
- Exporting C++ code
What if your project needs to be converted to C++, e.g. to integrate it with a bigger system written in that language?
- Interoperability with .NET technology
Is it possible to create a complex GUI in C# or Visual Basic and make it work seamlessly with the dataflow algorithm?
- Sharing common macrofilters between multiple projects
Are you able to create common subprograms and reuse them in multiple projects?
- Undo / Redo functionality
Are you able to undo any program change you made with Ctrl+Z?
- Unlimited Trial
Advanced software takes time to learn. Can you try it for as long as you wish before you invest your money?
