FloorTek Breakout Session Day1: Cognex ViDi
Cognex ViDi Suite is the first image analysis software designed specifically for factory automation. ViDi solves complex applications that are too difficult, tedious, or expensive for traditional machine vision systems. Compared to traditional machine vision, ViDi is better designed for hard-to-solve applications, is easier to configure, and tolerates variations better. The Suite consists of 4 different tools: Locate, Analyze, Classify, and Read.
