Expanded deep learning functions for machine vision software

08 March 2022

MVTec Software GmbH is launching the latest version (5.1) of its MERLIC machine vision software.

MERLIC is said to enable complete machine vision applications to be quickly developed and operated without having to write a single line of code. 

Six months after the release of MERLIC 5, an enhanced feature set is now available that provides even better usability. In particular, the range of functions of the deep learning AI technology has been expanded. In addition to the anomaly detection and classification features that were already included in MERLIC 5, Deep OCR has now been added. MVTec has also optimised hardware compatibility to accelerate deep learning applications.

MERLIC 5.1 includes a new tool for optical character recognition that is based on HALCON’s Deep OCR technology. This holistic deep-learning-based approach can robustly localise characters, regardless of their orientation, font type or polarity, and it requires significantly less parameter tuning. Recognition performance is further increased by the automatic grouping of characters. This allows the identification of whole words, reducing the chance of misinterpretation of similar-looking characters. This new tool does not require the Deep Learning Add-On and is therefore already included in the entry level package MERLIC 5.1 S.
