Feature Details

Operating System Compatibility
  • Cloud Inference is only available from LandingLens.
  • Docker is available in multiple environments. It is important to note that Docker is only available for users on the legacy "classic" workflow.
  • LandingEdge is available on the Windows Operation System. For more information on the system requirements, go here.
Input/Output FoldersThe application can continuously look for new images added to the Input folder, then write inference results in JSON to the Output folder.
APIThe application can receive APIs to upload images. API results are returned in JSON.
  • Cloud Inference supports POST APIs.
  • LandingEdge and Docker support Web APIs.
Input/Output MetadataThe application can receive predefined image metadata. The predefined metadata will also be uploaded if the images are uploaded to LandingLens.
Predefined metadata can be returned when using WebAPIs and Input/Output folders. Example metadata:

  "imageId": "28587.jpg",
  "inspectionStationId": "11",
  "locationId": "California#11",
  "captureTimestamp": "2021-10-11T12:00:00.00000"

WebcamThe application can auto-detect attached webcams. The application automatically picks one if you have multiple webcams connected to your computer.
GenICamThe application can auto-detect GenICams. Note: You must install the camera driver before the application can detect the GenICam. 
PLC CommunicationThe application supports Rockwell PLCs (Programmable Logic Controllers).
Results DashboardThe application can display live results for you to monitor inference.
HiLo Shadow & Production ModeThe application can give users the ability to mark images as:
  • OK (good) or NG (not good) in Shadow mode.
  • Accept or Reject in Production mode.
Offline ModeThe application can run inference offline.
Multi-Inspection Point SupportThe application supports multiple Inspection Points.
Drag and Drop Images for InferenceThe application allows users to drag and drop images one at a time to run inference.
