Basler Cameras for Android Applications
The Android operating system, which has established itself in the mobile device market, has so far received little support in the computer vision market. Many developers therefore resorted to common web cameras for mobile applications, which, however, cannot withstand industrial requirements.
Basler now offers the pylon software for its ace, ace2, dart, and pulse cameras for Android systems, enabling developers to explore new mobile applications with professional computer vision cameras. Compared to webcams, Basler cameras with pylon for Android offer excellent image quality and stability as well as extensive camera control options. Furthermore, Basler customers can choose from a wide range of sensors.
Tilmann Zuper, Product Manager for pylon emphasizes: "We enable our customers to use industry-proven Basler machine vision cameras on Android operating systems, even with Java. Android is not only used for tablets and smartphones, but also for embedded devices. The range of possible applications extends from industrial and medical devices to mobile apps, for example in medical technology, production inspection or vehicle monitoring".
