AI-Enhanced Machine Vision

Aug. 17, 2023

B&R has added deep learning functionality to its smart camera portfolio. The first product to emerge from the project is a deep-learning-based optical character recognition (OCR) function. This deep OCR achieves fast read rates, even on fonts that are otherwise difficult to recognize. Additionally, a collaboration with machine vision software specialist MVTec and AI processor specialist Hailo makes the B&R camera an efficient edge device, addressing power consumption concerns regarding deep learning algorithms. The collaboration with MVTec also gives machine builders access to a selection of the best performing vision functions available.
