Mairano, Italy, Dec. 9, 2010 — For smart cameras, Tattile srl has announced the first release of its Antares Engine Toolkit for National Instruments’ LabView, which gives LabView developers access to nearly 500 Tattile Antares vision tools. Developers who are familiar with the LabView environment can now implement vision systems with any Tattile smart camera or image analyzer. With the new toolkit, users can develop and deploy vision applications for the Antares Engine using only LabView. To develop the Antares Engine Toolkit, the company collaborated with ImagingLab srl. The key to the integration of LabView and Antares is the employment of the user datagram protocol over Ethernet, a technique that assures compatibility between Tattile smart vision hardware and all other equipment supported by LabView. The initial release of the Antares Toolkit for LabView will be available as a free download in January 2011.
