Precise edge/line detection and location to measure object width, edges, and features
The Caliper tool measures the width of objects, the location of edges or features, and the location and spacing of pairs of edges. Using the approximate location and characteristics of the feature or edges you want to measure or locate, the Caliper tool delivers detailed information about the precise locations of features within an object.The Caliper tool uses two methods of locating edges or edge pairs in an image:
- Edge mode, in which edge peaks are detected using a simple 1D kernel
- Correlation mode, in which correlation peaks between a 1D sample image and a 1D reference image are located
The Caliper tool offers manufacturers extremely rapid and precise pattern detection and location within a well-defined area of an image.
