MIL X uses deep learning technology, specifically the Convolutional Neural Network (CNN) and its variants, to perform image and pixel classification for the tasks of identifying and detecting defects, respectively.

With SP5, users benefit from a simplified workflow for training a deep neural network, new corresponding models producing finer results when segmented, and a new inference engine enabling performance. higher and more hardware support. MIL X provides the infrastructure and interactive environment to create the training dataset and monitor and analyze the training process. SP5 streamlines training by automatically subdividing the training dataset, offering preset increases, and offering a neural network model to start. Matrox Imaging also continues to offer its specialists for hire to train a deep neural network on behalf of a user using the same facilities above.

New 3D processing operations, shape search and droplet analysis
MIL X has a rich set of tools to perform 3D processing and analysis. Improvements in SP5 include filters for noise removal, while two new tools, respectively for shape finding and drop analysis, further extend a user’s ability to locate and measure features and objects. in a point cloud.

A product demo video shows how two Matrox AltiZ 3D and MIL X profile sensors with SP5 vision software running on a Matrox 4Sight XV6 vision controller perform various 3D analysis tasks.

Hand-eye calibration for robot guidance
Another tool, 3D calibration, now further facilitates the use of a camera or sensor within a robotic cell. Users can opt for eye-to-hand or eye-to-hand calibration, both of which accurately relate what a camera or sensor sees (the pose of the object established using other tools MIL X) to a robot controller for guidance.

More new tools and features
MIL X SP5 provides enhancements to the Matrox SureDotOCR tool for reading raster text produced by inkjet printers and dot-dot markers. The updated tool now supports variable length text as well as varying point size and overlap.

Finally, SP5 features a revamped CPython interface, which supports NumPy, improving the experience and efficiency of those developing using this popular high-level programming language.

“With the release of MIL X SP5, the capabilities of our Vision SDK are even more pronounced, especially in 3D and deep learning spaces,” said Pierantonio Boriero, Director of Product Management. “New neural network models, an inference engine and simplified deep learning training, along with improved 3D tools, combine to present the highest performing version of this SDK to date. “
