Automatically extract Information from Image Data

ibaVision integrates professional, industrial image processing into the iba system and enables visual monitoring and analysis of processes. Quality checks can be automated during the production and allow for early intervention in the process before major errors occur.

ibaVision at a Glance

Machine vision - ibaVision

  • Seamless integration of industrial image processing with ibaCapture and ibaPDA
  • Open interface through integration of the HALCON library for image processing
  • Use of ibaCapture as image source and storage for processed images
  • Record and visualize ibaVision results as visual signals with ibaPDA
  • Use process signals from ibaPDA in ibaVision
  • Automated quality control and process monitoring

Functional Principle

ibaVision serves as a link between the iba system and HALCON®, the flexible programming library for industrial image processing. So ibaVision provides functions to automatically extract information from video data. Extracted information can then be recorded synchronously as “visual signals”. These signals can be processed, visualized and analyzed with the familiar iba tools in the usual way. It is therefore possible for visual information that is difficult or impossible to detect with the usual sensors to be used for process analysis and automated monitoring.

Product Features

Intelligent image processing

ibaVision uses HALCON programs that convert visual process information into numerical or logical values. In this way, for example, the spacing, geometry, or position of products can be determined and used for the quality testing or identification of parts during the ongoing process.

Integration of ibaVision

The interfaces available in the HALCON application for data exchange are automatically detected in ibaVision and can be flexibly linked to signals from the iba system. Both signal and image information can be used bidirectionally.

Image information plus process signal

Since the image information is synchronized with other process signals, causal relationships can be examined in a later analysis and finally the root-causes of malfunctions can be easily identified.

Flexible image processing solutions with HALCON

The actual processing of the image data is carried out with HALCON library functions. The application for image processing must be created by the user for every specific project.

Combining measurement data and video images - ibaCapture

ibaCapture, in conjunction with ibaPDA, records video and HMI images synchronously with measurement data. Recording can be done continuously, or triggered by events. Important events can be automatically stored as still images. For historical analytics, ibaAnalyzer can be used to automatically retrieve, align, and display recorded video and HMI images with archived measurement data.

Measuring value acquisition - ibaPDA

As the central core of the iba system, ibaPDA has proven itself as one of the most versatile data acquisition systems for maintenance and production for many years. Among the many powerful features of ibaPDA are asset-agnostic acquisition, high-speed synchronous archiving, and real-time streaming analytics.
