At the recent „Vision Show“ in Boston, the Baumer SmartApplets have been awarded bronze under the "Vision Systems Design 2018 Innovators Awards Program". These ready-to-use function extensions for the LX VisualApplets cameras provide users with the benefit of drop-in solutions for standard tasks in image processing without the need to build own know-how in FPGA programming. This approach also convinced the expert jury of system integrators and end users and put the Baumer SmartApplets among this year's top innovations in image processing.
Baumer SmartApplets: Easy and cost-efficient solution for standard tasks in image processing
With SmartApplets, Baumer was the first camera manufacturer to present an innovative concept for easy and application-oriented functionality upgrades of cameras with FPGA-based image processing. SmartApplets conveniently upload in the LX VisualApplets cameras by firmware update and are immediately ready to use. They fully eliminate the need to develop own processing algorithms which allows for quick reactions to market requirements and significantly cuts down on development costs.
