MxVision™ Image Recognition Overview

MxVision Image Recognition supports most everything that you need for testing Clusters, HVAC, Navigation, TFT Displays, and other automotive HMI interfaces.  The capability can be used for numerous other purposes, for example:

To detect the position of mechanical parts such as the position of latches, windows, and wipers.

As a simple non-invasive detection of whether lights are on or off.
