Decodes difficult to read text and characters
The ViDi Blue-Read tool is an image analysis software used in manufacturing to decipher badly deformed, skewed, and poorly etched characters using optical character recognition (OCR). ViDi Blue-Read works right out of the box, dramatically reducing development time, thanks to the deep-learning pretrained font library.
Solves a wide range of challenging industrial OCR applications
Cognex ViDi Blue-Read uses artificial intelligence in a manufacturing environment to solve the most challenging OCR applications such as dot peens codes on metal parts, embossed characters on injection molded products, laser etched codes on electronic components, label-based codes on packaging, low contrast characters, and codes on confusing backgrounds.
Eliminates complicated, time-consuming programming
The easy-to-use interface eliminates complex tool setup. Simply define the region of interest, set the character size, and label the characters in the image set to retrain the tool to read application specific characters. The debugging interface can help identify mis-reads for easy fine-tuning.
