CARRIDA: Software Engine for Automatic Number Plate Recognition
New in Vision Components' product range: Carrida, a software engine for automatic licence plate recognition.
The high-performance, hardware-independent OEM software designed for integration into a wide range of surveillance systems. With a typical processing time of 30 ms and a recognition accuracy of more than 96%, the new Carrida ALPR/ANPR library is very fast and precise. It reliably identifies even dirty, damaged or skewed license plates. The software is suitable for use with Windows- or Linux-based mobile or embedded systems. Typical applications include access control, toll and speed control, traffic analysis, and management of transport fleets. An API enables integration into applications via the programming languages C/C++, .NET, Borland Delphi, Python, or C#.

VC nano cube dual Smart Camera
Basis for VC nano cube dual is VC's Smart Camera VC6210 nano. The processing unit is in the standard nano housing, to which the sensor heads are connected. VC nano cube dual is a cost-efficient solution for example for stereo vision applications where small dimensions and a low weight are essential.
VC nano cube dual:
- one or two remote sensor heads optional
- measuring 22 x 22 x 22,5mm
- resolution: 752 x 480 pixel
- cable lenght up to 3m
- synchronous image acquisition via trigger
- 700 MHz DSP
- 5600 MIPS computational power
VCSBC quadro, the Intelligent Multiple Head Camera Platform
The VCSBC quadro provides ports for one up to four sensor heads and is thus a cost-efficient platform for all kinds of multi-sensor solutions.
It is, for example, an ideal solution for applications that require a high resolution along the x or y axis, since up to four sensor heads can be installed in a row. The intelligent camera synchronizes overlapping parts of pictures taken by neighboring sensors. It compiles the individual pictures with a 752 x 480 pixel resolution (Wide VGA) into a complete 3.008 x 480 pixel image. The hardware design ensures synchronous operation of all connected sensors: a trigger signal initiates image capture at the exact same instant of time. The VCSBC quadro can therefore also be used as a low-cost stereo camera. It provides 32 MB Flash and 128 MB DDRAM for program and image storage. The integrated processor has a computing power of 5.600 MIPS. An Ethernet interface and an optional RS232 interface enable integration into automation environments.
What is a Smart Camera?
Smart Cameras make image processing possible where space is at premium, because they work without a PC station. The compact and robust housing contains all necessary components. Real time image processing inspections tasks are optimally mastered with VC Smart Cameras. Thanks to the imbedded intelligence, Smart Cameras are often the perfect solution for cost-efficient production at optimal quality. More info...
