ViDi logoViDi Suite: Artificial Intelligence for Machine Vision

Cognex ViDi is the first deep learning-based software designed to solve these complicated applications for factory automation. Deep learning technology uses neural networks which mimic human intelligence to distinguish anomalies, parts, and characters while tolerating natural variations in complex patterns. Deep learning offers an advantage over traditional machine vision approaches, which struggle to appreciate variability and deviation between very visually similar parts.
