New Deep Learning Add-on for automated image analysis (Oct. 11, 2017)

The new Deep Learning Add-on for Adaptive Vision Studio is a intuitive and reliable solution for machine vision problems otherwise hard or even impossible to solve with current solution approaches. It enables users to create machine vision applications without the requirement of programming. By using Deep Learning technology the software tool is trained with good and bad samples. Then it automatically classifies input images as accepted or rejected.

The prerequisite for typical applications are between 20 and 50 images for training, a state-of-the-art GPU for fast performance, and just a few minutes training time, resulting in very reliable inspection results.

To improve output, the Deep Learning Add-on is offered both with supervised and unsupervised mode. In the supervised mode, the user marks defects (pixels) with a drawing tool corresponding to defects on the training images. The tool then learns to distinguish good and bad features by looking for their key characteristics. It is recommended for inspecion tasks regarding textile, photovoltaics, food, and others. The unsupervised mode does not require a definition of defects in the first place, which can apply amongst others for package verification, or plastics and injection moulding.

Common characteristics of deep learning applications are deformable objects, variable orientation, and a vague specification with good and bad parts by customers. Learn more about how the Deep Learning Add-on for Adaptive Vision Studio can support your application.

Roboter-assistierte minimal-invasive Chirurgie mit dem DaVinci System (May 04, 2012)

Der Operateur kann bei dem Da Vinci- System auf die Vorteile der konventionellen Laparoskopie zurückgreifen. Zusätzlich bietet diese Operationsmethode allgemein folgende Vorteile:

im Gegensatz zur konventionellen Laparoskopie hat der Operateur 3-dimensionale Sichtverhältnisse, wie bei der offenen Operation. Dies ermöglicht eine räumliche Wahrnehmung mit optimaler Sichtkontrolle und verbessert das operative Vorgehen

eine 10-fache Vergrößerung der einzelnen Strukturen ermöglicht eine präzise, millimeter- genaue Operation

die abwinkelbaren Instrumente mit 7 Freiheitsgraden, sind den Handgelenken eines Chirurgen nachgeahmt und ermöglichen eine vergleichbare Beweglichkeit zur offenen Operation. Dies ist ein wesentlicher Vorteil gegenüber der konventionellen Laparoskopie mit nur 3 Freiheitsgraden

mit Hilfe der modernsten Technik der Telemanipulator-Technologie kann die Handbewegung des Arztes skaliert, also gefiltert und verfeinert werden. Feine, bei jedem Menschen vorhandene Zitter- oder ruckartige Bewegungen werden ausgeglichen

die ergonomische Sitzhaltung des Operateurs ermöglicht eine entspannte und konzentrierte Operation


Kameralösungen für die Endoskopie / Mikroskopie (May 04, 2012)

NET GmbH bietet seit über 16 Jahren Kameralösungen für die Endoskopie an. Hierzu zählen 1-CCD, 3-CCD SD / HD und 1-Chip HD-CMOS Kameras als Kompaktbauweise oder mit abgesetztem Kamerakopf.

Da gerade bei flexiblen Endoskopen sehr kleine Kameraköpfe gefordert sind können hier Lösungen von 1/2" bis 1/10" CCD angeboten werden. Die verfügbaren Kameracontroller liefern eine Vielfalt an Möglichkeiten wie z.B. einen digitalen Ausgang, OSD, Weißabgleich, Remote-control Funktionen, automatische Kopferkennung sowie Kabellöngen bis 15m u.v.m..

Durch diese Optionen kann die Kamera an die jeweiligen Bedürfnisse kundenspezifisch angepasst werden.

Auch im Bereich von HD Lösungen (1920x1080 Pixeln) stehen 3-CCD und 1-Chip HD CMOS Kameras mit DVI und HD-SDI Interface für die Endoskopie und Mikroskopie zur Verfügung.

Für alle Kameras gibt es eine anwenderfreundliche Einstellsoftware von NET mit denen die Kameras voreingestellt werden können. Push-buttons, die mit dem Controller verknüpft sind, bieten dem Anwender die Möglichkeit, seine Kamera über Tasten zu bedienen. Diese Push-buttons können zudem vorkonfiguriert werden und ermöglichen damit z.B. die Einstellung der Shutter-Geschwindigkeit, Gain-Einstellung, um nur einige zu nennen.
