VisionLab
VisionLab is a development environment for image processing applications. VisionLab is highly extensible. You can add your own operators and camera interfaces. Easy to use and easy implementation in existing software. Look below for a complete list of features, download VisionLab demo or look at the help file.

Supported vision algorithms

Image processing operators:

  • Image analysis
  • 2D camera calibration
  • Edge detection
  • Filters
  • Geometric operations
  • Image math
  • Labeling and Blob Measurement
  • Morphology
  • Segmentation
  • Color processing
  • Barcode identification
  • Transformation (Distance, Hough and FFT)
  • Pattern matching
  • Classification with neural networks and optimization of neural networks with genetic algorithms
See for a course on using these operators.
Supported cameras

VisionLab has an open camera architecture and users can easily add their own cameras. Standard VisionLab supports several interfaces:

  • XIMEA xiAPI (XIMEA Application Programming Interface)
  • Basler Pylon
  • IDS uEye, both USB and ethernet cameras
  • Microsoft Media Foundation compatible (web)cameras
  • Microsoft Kinect for Windows sensor
  • FireWire: FirePackage for AVT cameras
  • Gen<I>Cam/GenTL (tested with IDS uEye cameras)
  • Tethering with Nikon and Canon DSLR cameras
Special camera interfaces made in collaborating with customers:
  • IDS Ensenso 3D camera
  • Kinect 2
  • NIT SWIR camera
  • Point Grey Research: Ladybug, Bumblebee 2 and Bumblebee 3
  • Schafter & Kirchhoff line scan camera
  • Swiss Ranger SR 300, Time of Flight camera
  • FLIR A20 (LWIR camera)
VisionLab Modules

The system consists of the following parts:

VisionLibA library of more the 300 operators for image processing, interfaces to cameras and a neural networks for classification.
VisionCmdA command interpreter for scripts. The scripts can be used for easy and fast development of applications or prototypes.
VisionServerA shell with a network interface around VisionCmd. With VisionServer it is possible to communicate over the internet with a remote VisionCmd. Scripts kan be develloped and tested on a PC and the be executed on an intelligent camera.
VisionClientA graphical user interface with which it is possible to experiment in a comfortable way with the VisionLib library and to develop and test scripts. An online help is available.
SWIG wrapper#C version is tested.
VisionLibPlugInA plugIn system for dlls to extend the command interpreter.

VisionLib, VisionCmd, VisionServer are completely written in ANSI C++. This software is developed and tested under Windows, Linux and Android. The software runs on x86, x64, ARM and PowerPC processors. Ports have been made to FESTO, Matrix Vision and Vision Components intelligent camera's.
Because VisionLab has an open structure it is easy for a user to accommodate or extend the system to his needs.
