HALCON Embedded Runs on the Nokia N900
While an on-site inspection, the dial count from an image of an electric meter is directly read out with HALCON Embedded running on the Nokia N900. Afterwards, the data can be send out by the mobile phone N900 immediately.
The tests also have proven that applications based on HALCON can successfully be built for the Nokia N900. First, the application can be developed with HALCON on a PC. After this, the exported code is compiled for the Nokia N900 to run the application on this mobile platform. MVTec will assist customers anytime who are interested in HALCON applications on this mobile platform.
Thus, all image processing applications are possible which are interesting for mobile platforms as there are character recognition (OCR) up to hand written characters, reading of documents, bar code and data code reading, pattern matching, and the counting of objects. Moreover, HALCON provides image enhancement and an automatic calibration for camera lens distortions.
The benefit of a mobile phone is obvious: By the integrated camera, data can be acquired at any place. As an example, the figure shows how an electric meter can be automatically read-out by the Nokia N900 and HALCON (see image). After the processing, data can be transmitted worldwide fast, and without a limit.
With this step, HALCON Embedded for the first time runs on hardware beyond the classical machine vision platforms. This enables users in new application fields to also take advantage of powerful machine vision.
