Check out the new features of the latest version HALCON 21.05

HDEVELOP USABILITY IMPROVEMENTS 

HDevelop’s new window docking has been improved. Users have now more options to control the position where floating windows are opened. Until now, the top left corner of the main screen has been used as the origin. Now it’s also possible to select the upper left corner of the screen where HDevelop is located, or the upper left corner of HDevelop itself.

In addition, HDevelop now also includes a new docking feature called “Auto-hide”. This allows users to quickly shrink widgets they currently don’t need into the sidebar and easily bring them back when needed.

Finally, graphics windows can now be grouped and organised in a much more convenient manner, in the new Canvas window.

IMPROVED BASIC OPERATORS IN 2D & 3D

In HALCON 21.05, the 3D point cloud sampling now supports a new mode called “furthest point” which typically results in a more uniform sampling of a 3D object.

The 3D point cloud smoothing has been extended by a new mode that uses information from the XYZ-mappings. 3D point cloud smoothing can be used as a preprocessing step to smooth point clouds and remove noise. This mode usually leads to a much faster processing time.

SUBPIXEL BAR CODE READER IMPROVEMENTS

HALCON’s subpixel bar code reader is capable of reading codes with very thin bars. In HALCON 21.05, the subpixel bar code reader has been improved regarding low-resolved codes. The decoding rate for those can now increase up to 50%.
