Baumer SmartApplets: The easy and cost-efficient way to master complex tasks in image processing
With new SmartApplets, Baumer is the first camera manufacturer to introduce an innovative concept to quickly and easily increase the application-specific functionalities of cameras with FPGA-based image processing. SmartApplets can be conveniently transferred to the LX VisualApplets cameras by means of a firmware update so the camera is immediately ready for use. As a result, even non-expert users benefit from ready-to-operate solutions for common tasks in image processing without the need to build up special know-how in FPGA programming.
They are also no longer required to define image processing algorithms on their own, which allows for a more rapid response to market requirements and significantly cuts down on development costs. By the end of the year, the first six SmartApplets to solve common image processing tasks will be available on the Baumer website for free download: Binarization, HDR, Image Aggregation, JPEG, Line Scan Emulation und Object Extraction.
