MVTec, AAEON & Basler Offer Joint Deep Learning Bundle

By Joel Davies -

MVTec Software GmbH is partnering with AAEON Technology Inc. and Basler AG to provide a machine vision bundle with integrated deep learning technologies named the “UP Squared Pro AI Vision Development Kit”.

The bundle combines the technologies of the three partners with AAEON providing the UP Squared Pro system with AI Core XM, an AI acceleration module including an Intel® Movidius™ Myriad™ X VPU. Basler supplies the plug-and-play USB 3.0 area scan camera pulse including matching accessories, whilst MVTec contributes the MERLIC 5 machine vision software with deep learning technologies such as anomaly detection and classification.

To maximize the use of the classification technology, users of the bundle can access MVTec’s Deep Learning Tool software for data labelling. Users will soon be able to update to MERLIC version 5.1 at no extra charge and benefit from additional features such as Deep OCR.

Christoph Wagner, Technical Product Manager MERLIC at MVTec, said: “With MERLIC 5, we’re adding intuitive and easy-to-use machine vision software to the bundle. Users benefit from fast and trouble-free access to state-of-the-art deep learning technologies without having to write a single line of code. It doesn’t get any easier than that”.

The bundle can serve as an optimal introductory deep learning package for all conceivable machine vision applications. Users can create a variety of machine vision applications via drag and drop with the focus on gaining experience with deep learning technologies. At the same time, the bundle can be used at any time in productive systems—across all sectors, including electronics manufacturing, the food and beverage industry, and machine building.

“With the UP Squared Pro AI Vision Development Kit, we make it possible for users from all industries to take their first steps with machine vision and deep learning. We believe that we can break down any reservations regarding the use of these innovative technologies and raise awareness of the many benefits”, explained Owen Wei, Marketing and BDM manager at AAEON.

This solution will be available from AAEON starting May 3, 2022. Preorders will be possible beginning March 16, 2022.
