NI Vision Builder for Automated Inspection (AI) is an interactive and easy-to-use menu-driven configurable environment for building, benchmarking, and deploying complete machine vision applications without the complexities of programming.
You can use the built-in deployment interface to quickly deploy your inspection, guidance, and identification applications. With this software, you can also set up complex pass/fail decisions and communicate inspection results over digital I/O, serial, or Ethernet protocols. In addition, Vision Builder AI includes utilities to model system variations so that you can feel confident about your system’s performance even as real-life conditions such as lighting, motion blur, and camera position affect your visual inspection.
Vision Builder AI also includes NI Vision Acquisition Software, which you can use to acquire, display, save, and monitor images from GigE Vision, IEEE 1394, and DirectShow USB devices, in addition to Camera Link, analog, parallel digital cameras, and NI Smart Cameras.
Vision Builder AI features one year of membership in the Standard Service Program (SSP) to help you make the most of your software investment. With an SSP membership, you can capitalize on the latest technology improvements through automatic software updates and maintenance releases and reduce your application development time with direct access to technical support from NI applications engineers via phone and e-mail. You also have access to special online, on-demand software training modules to learn more about features, application uses, and development best practices.
Alternatively, you can purchase Vision Builder AI through NI Developer Suite, a modular product offering with which you can select software components based on your application needs. With an NI Developer Suite subscription, you have access to software as updates are available as well as direct access to technical support from NI applications engineers via phone and e-mail.
