IDS NXT ocean Creative Kit
How to know what your intelligent camera is actually doing
An all-in-one embedded vision system such as IDS NXT ocean, which requires no prior knowledge of deep learning or camera programming, is ideally suited for entry into AI Vision. There are lots of benefits in using intelligent cameras. Since traditional vision solutions work with a fixed set of rules, organic or rapidly changing objects are a huge challenge.
Artificial intelligence, on the other hand, can handle such situations with ease. It is therefore a popular choice when it comes to identifying products or defects as well as sorting applications and quality control. However, the hurdle for the implementation of an AI-based image processing solution is still usually quite high.
IDS shows that there is another way: The AI system IDS NXT ocean comes with all required tools and workflows, which means that users can set up their intelligent vision solution without any prior knowledge. IDS NXT cameras are designed as hybrid systems to enable both pre-processing of image data with classical image processing and feature extraction using neural networks side by side to efficiently run image processing applications on a single device.

Software update brings new tools to understand the AI better
The current software update makes setting up, deploying and controlling the intelligent cameras in the IDS NXT cockpit even easier.
For this purpose, among other things, an ROI editor is integrated with which users can freely draw the image areas to be evaluated and configure, save and reuse them as custom grids with many parameters. In addition, the new tools Attention Maps and Confusion Matrix illustrate how the AI works in the cameras and what decisions it makes. This helps to clarify the process and enables the user to evaluate the quality of a trained neural network and to improve it through targeted retraining.
Data security also plays an important role in the industrial use of artificial intelligence. As of the current update, communication between IDS NXT cameras and system components can therefore be encrypted via HTTPS. For a better understanding.
Just get started with the IDS NXT ocean Creative Kit Anyone who wants to test the industrial-grade embedded vision platform IDS NXT ocean and evaluate its potential for their own applications should take a look at the IDS NXT ocean Creative Kit. It provides customers with all the components they need to create, train and run a neural network. In addition to an IDS NXT industrial camera with 1.6 MP Sony sensor, lens, cable and tripod adapter, the package includes six months’ access to the AI training software IDS NXT lighthouse.
Currently, IDS is offering the set in a special promotion at particularly favourable conditions.
