Deep learning at your fingertips – the new HALCON version is here: HALCON 17.12, named after its release date in December 2017. This release includes an extensive set of cutting-edge deep learning functions that can be instantly applied in industrial settings.
In addition to the mentioned deep learning technologies, HALCON 17.12 offers many other new features, product improvements, and revised functions. For example, the software enables the users to inspect specular and partially specular surfaces to detect defects by applying the principle of deflectometry. This method uses the aforementioned specular reflections by observing mirror images of known patterns and their deformations on the surface.
