Vision Software

The requirements for vision systems are multi-faceted. Starting at the optical level for lenses and illumination, camera type, frame grabber and finally, the vision software. Depending on the application, there are off-the-shelf solutions available, such as the Vision for Automated Inspection, or for more advanced systems, LabVIEW has its Vision Development module, for example. Regardless of application software needs, the system needs a deployment target that is suitable for the environmental conditions it will be operating in. Options range from desktop or industrial PCs, to an embedded vision system, all the way to smart cameras.

National Instruments

National Instruments has been a leader in machine vision and image processing for nearly a decade. NI vision software is available in two packages – the NI Vision Development Module and NI Vision Builder for Automated Inspection (AI). The Vision Development Module contains hundreds of vision functions to use with National Instruments LabVIEW, NI Lab Windows/CVI, C/C++, or Visual Basic to program powerful vision inspection, alignment, identification, and measurement applications. Vision Builder AI is an interactive software environment for benchmarking and deploying machine vision applications without programming. Both software packages work with all NI vision frame grabbers and the NI Compact Vision System.


NI Vision Development Module

The National Instruments Vision Development Module is a collection of image processing and machine vision functions for numerous programming languages, such as NI LabVIEW and Microsoft C++, Visual Basic, and .NET. With these functions you can enhance images, check for presence, locate features, identify objects, and measure parts. Along with programming libraries, the NI Vision Development Module also includes NI Vision Assistant and NI Vision Acquisition software.

The Vision Development Module delivers:

  • Hundreds of image processing functions including pattern and geometric matching, OCR, bar code readers, object classification, and particle analysis
  • Sub pixel accuracy down to 1/10 of a pixel and 1/10 of a degree
  • Fast application prototyping and code generation with Vision Assistant
  • Driver software for thousands of cameras, including GigE Vision and IEEE 1394 cameras

NI Vision Builder for Automated Inspection (AI)

National Instruments Vision Builder for Automated Inspection (AI) is a configurable machine vision development environment providing solutions to most machine vision application challenges without the use of a programming language or complicated customization tools.

  • Acquire and process images with any NI frame grabber, GigE Vision or IEEE 1394 cameras, or the NI Compact Vision System
  • Build, benchmark, and deploy complete machine vision applications without programming
  • Configure more than 100 powerful machine vision tools including geometric matching, OCR, and particle analysis
  • Communicate triggering and inspection results directly to industrial devices over digital I/O, serial and ethernet protocols
