Verifying label application as well as reading dot-matrix text, the project will run on the 4Sight GPm vision controller paired with the new Iris GTR smart camera and two additional cameras. The company will also have a fully functional software demo station, allowing visitors to explore the capabilities of Matrox Imaging Library (MIL) 10, with its new MIL CoPilot interactive evaluation and prototyping environment, as well as the integrated project templates of Matrox Design Assistant 5. Based on the needs of the visitor, Matrox Imaging experts will be able to run through how MIL and Design Assistant can be used to execute various machine vision project. Matrox describes the Iris GTR as an “extremely rugged” IP67-rated smart camera. Measuring 75 x 75 x 54 mm, it is powered by CMOS image sensors boasting high readout rates and an Intel Celeron dual-core embedded processor.
