Machine Vision Pattern Matching Technology
Ranging from high-speed basic pattern matching, to complex automatic feature detection and correlation, Newton Labs has implemented pattern matching as part of numerous machine vision solutions. On a fundamental level, pattern matching is correlating a previously trained image or pattern to a live data sample acquired via imager.
Newton has extended these basic ideas to also leverage automatic feature detection that allows for flexibility in rotation and scaling of a potential match. Newton systems use these techniques to match objects with dynamic shapes, such as a key ring or a flexible-tethered tool, by reliably identifying specific sub-features such as hole diameters and linear proportions.
