Locate 2D features on a part’s surface using color
The most advanced feature location technology relies on geometric pattern-matching, learning an object’s shape using boundary curves that are not tied to a pixel grid. This approach accurately finds objects, despite changes in angle, size, and shading, and without relying on grey levels. But when the geometric data supplied is insufficient, this approach is not feasible. SearchMax uses color features to search for objects when the geometric data available is inadequate.
- Grey level images with small models
- Images that would create too many features for PatMax
- Objects that don’t segment well due to color variations
- Skewed objects
