Vision from the App Store

Apr 6, 2020 | inVISION

Machine vision must be even more intuitive in the future. The usability of the systems can be simplified in two ways. On the one hand, by making it possible to operate different devices, such as (vision) sensors and 2D/3D vision systems, with a single software. The user only has to learn how to operate one software and not a new one for each device. Companies such as wenglor or Balluff already have this approach. The alternative – similar to a smartphone – is to develop a completely individual app for every possible application. If my application changes, I simply download the next app from a kind of vision app store onto my vision system. This procedure is already offered by Sick or ifm electronic in some cases.
