New STC-0103 DXFDraw released from Scorpion Vision XI

We are happy to release a new Scorpion Tool Component that can overlay DXF-files upon an image in Scorpion Vision Software XI.

This is very useful. The feature is implemented as an easy to use tool where you only specify the filename and then attached the tool to the located object’s reference.

Using the built-in reference system in Scorpion handles translation, rotation and scaling and ensures the best visualisation fits 100%. The main target for this feature is measurement applications.

The features is available from Scorpion Vision XI build 612.

The configuration dialog is shown below for reference:

Future enhancement can be to use the DXF file for dynamic user configuration of the Scorpion Vision System.

In 1996 a team of vision and image processing specialists was established to provide state-of the-art vision solutions. From 1997 to 2000 Tordivel developed and deployed a large number of inline advanced vision systems for mobile telephone inspection in Norway and Sweden.
In 2000 we created the unique Scorpion Vision Software®. The Scorpion Vision Framework has since been the basis for thousands of machine vision systems and Scorpion Vision OEM solutions. In 2006 we decided to develope the best easy-to-use 3D vision framework.
From 2006 to 2011 we participated in a series of large R&D projects within 3D Machine Vision. Since 2011 we have pioneered 3D Stereo Vision with the Scorpion 3D Stinger Camera to create the most stunning 3D Robot Vision solutions.

The company has highly skilled employees and works within the following business areas:

Scorpion Vision Framework –
Global distribution, training and support of Scorpion Vision Software.
Scorpion Vision OEM –
Complete State of the art 2D and 3D Machine vision solutions based on the Scorpion Vision Framework
Scorpion Vision Integration –
Turn-key vision systems in Norway, Sweden and United Kingdom.
Scorpion Vision Products –
Unique  products for end-users in Fish Industry, Aluminium and Manufacturing Industries.

Our business strategy is to provide the machine vision industry with cutting edge solutions and systems based on our open Scorpion Vision Framework and our unique Scorpion Stinger Components

    • 3D Stereo Vision – a natural step from 2D Machine Vision
3D technology shall become a transparent and natural step forward from 2D machine vision. With a 3D calibrated camera it is possible to extract 3D information directly from a 2D image, and this now forms the basis for the most advanced 3D machine vision solutions. With two or more images from 3D calibrated cameras, stereoscopic images can extract sparse 3D information or generate dense 3D images or point cloud.

These techniques are fast becoming an important method for 3D Robot Vision applications and will become even more important in the future. It will contribute to evolution of the robotic revolution and the robotic age. In this webcast I will try to describe the technical foundation for stereoscopic 3D robot vision.

2D or 3D Machine Vision? Why Not Both?

by Winn Hardin, Contributing Editor – AIA 

It wasn’t too many years ago that system designers and integrators would do whatever they could to avoid 3D machine vision. It required complex lighting systems, lots of processing power, more engineering, and even more money.

Today, with the increase of computing power and newer, faster CMOS camera sensors, 3D machine vision equipment and software suppliers have simplified 3D system setup while adding even more capabilities to their products, such as using both 2D and 3D images to make their systems even more robust. As a result, applications that would never have considered the cost of 3D are adopting the technology at record rates.
