Line detection is essential for many vision applications, including inspection, alignment, measurement, and gauging. Traditionally, line finders have been limited in their ability to locate lines in challenging conditions, like low lighting and poor contrast settings. Cognex’s Smart Line tool offers a powerful solution to overcome these shortfalls.
Smart Line brings deep learning technology into line-scanning applications, delivering higher accuracy and ease-of-use. The tool is the first of its kind in the PC vision world, using intelligent algorithms to find lines quickly and dynamically with sub-pixel line accuracy. Smart Line solves line-scanning challenges too advanced for “traditional” vision systems but requires no prior deep learning experience. The ease of use of Smart Line makes the software accessible to a range of users and skills levels.
