Matrox Design Assistant X
Agile and powerful development environment
Matrox Design Assistant® X is a flowchart-based integrated development environment that takes the gymnastics out of vision application development by removing the need for coding. It includes project templates to help new developers get up and running quickly, plus the ability to create custom flowchart steps and design a web-based operator interface.
Offering support for Matrox® Imaging smart cameras, visions controllers, and 3D sensors, flexible Matrox Design Assistant X software lets you choose the best platform for vision project deployment and get a leg up on development.
Integrated development environment
A single software environment for creating both the application logic through flowcharts and the web-based operator interface
Flexible deployment options
Hardware-independent environment supports smart cameras, vision controllers, and PCs with CoaXPress®, GigE Vision®, or USB3 Vision® cameras
Interface to 3D sensors
Readily interface to a multitude of 3D third-party cameras as well as Matrox AltiZ high-fidelity 3D profile sensors
Deep-learning based image classification
Automatically categorize image content using machine learning for identification and defect detection
3D data analysis
