Flowchart-based vision software
Aurora Design Assistant®1, formerly Matrox Design Assistant, is an integrated development environment (IDE) for Microsoft® Windows® where vision applications are created by constructing an intuitive flowchart instead of writing traditional program code. In addition to building a flowchart, the IDE enables users to design a graphical webbased operator interface for the application. Aurora Design Assistant can operate independent of hardware, allowing users to choose any computer with CoaXPress® , GigE Vision® , or USB3 Vision® cameras and get the processing power needed. Image capture from CoaXPress cameras happens with the use of a Zebra Rapixo CXP frame grabber. Aurora Design Assistant works with multiple cameras all within the same project, or per project running concurrently and independently from one another, platform permitting. This field-proven software is also a perfect match for a Zebra vision controller or smart camera. Aurora Design Assistant offers the freedom to choose the ideal platform for any vision project
Application design Flowchart and operator interface design are done within the Aurora Design Assistant IDE hosted on a computer running 64-bit Windows. A flowchart is put together using a step-by-step approach, where each step is taken from an existing toolbox and is configured interactively. Inputs for a subsequent step—which can be images, 3D data, or alphanumeric results—are easily linked to the outputs of a previous step. Decision-making is performed using a flow-control step, where the logical expression is described interactively. Results from analysis and processing steps are immediately displayed to permit the quick tuning of parameters. A contextual guide provides assistance for every step in the flowchart. Flowchart legibility is maintained by grouping steps into sub-flowcharts. A recipes facility enables a group of analysis and processing steps to have different configurations for neatly handling variations of objects or features of interest within the same flowchart.
This flowchart-based vision software offers the freedom to choose the ideal platform for any vision project and speeds up application development.
