Vision application development is a demanding discipline that requires knowledge of image processing techniques, as well as programming skill and an extensive knowledge of software development tools. Developing on an embedded system proves to be a further challenge to this skill set due to the platform’s focus on efficiency (computes per watt) and the need to learn how a particular edge device interfaces with other systems within the solution.

As artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning are used to innovate the approach to vision-based solutions, so too must manufacturers of embedded vision systems innovate the development tool set they provide to users. AI vision and machine learning work in an entirely different way from rules-based image processing. The quality of a result is no longer the product of manually developed program code but instead it is determined by a training process with suitable image data, meaning the core skills necessary for classic image processing are no longer required. IDS is embracing this shift with the IDS NXT embedded vision platform.

The IDS NXT embedded vision platform is fully customizable, allowing a broad set of user groups to intuitively design their own applications. A fully automated application configurator, a vision app construction kit with an accessible visual interface, and a classic software development kit (SDK) providing a code-based programming approach ensure users of all expertise levels can excel at creating and improving their solutions. This tool is accessible for every knowledge level. The platform helps save time and cost for commissioning and setting up individual image processing applications with AI. Kevin McCabe will demonstrate how every user can design bespoke embedded vision applications with AI and run them on an IDS NXT edge device. Equipped with the right tools, embedded vision development has never been easier or faster.
