AX Smart Cameras win inspect award 2022
The smart cameras of the AX series from Baumer are among the best innovations in industrial image processing. That is was the readers of the trade magazine inspect say in the voting for the inspect award 2022 which has been presented at VISION in Stuttgart today. The AX Smart Cameras are robust, IP67-capable devices for image processing in industrial environments. They enable rapid and inexpensive development of individual image processing and AI solutions. During development, Baumer placed the greatest emphasis on performance, simplicity and flexibility in order to reduce integration costs and hurdles.
This combination is well received by users, as is also shown by winning the inspect award (rank 2) in the Vision category. Product Manager Peter Felber sees the ease of implementation as a decisive advantage: “The integration of camera, image processing and lighting controller simplifies the system design. Users thus get a fast and simple solution for AI and image processing in an industrial environment,” said Felber at the award ceremony. The AX Smart Cameras are freely programmable and combine NVIDIA Jetson AI modules and Sony CMOS sensors to form an image processing platform for vision-at-the-edge and AI applications. The use of well-known standard technologies such as Linux, GenICam and NVIDIA Jetson enables customers to implement their own image processing solutions in a very short time.
