The Challenge

Try to figure out a creative way to utilise the software

Machine vision and image analysis are often put to solve menial problems trivial to their nature. We, at SANXO, don't want the field to hit limits for we believe that the technological development enables the use of imagination in designing machine vision applications. We want you to come up with creative ways to apply image processing with our software, was it related to a specific industry or simply something interesting or fun in other ways.

Acquire images into Modular-X and play

In the challenge, you may utilise any image source. The software supports a large selection of camera devices (even web cameras) by default but you may just as well use your own photos or images downloaded from the web. Play around with the software to get yourself familiar with the available tools and functions. Design an application that does something useful, interesting or simply fun with the images!

Hey check it out! My application does umm... this... apparently! Anyway, is it interesting? Does this sort of stuff win?

Good question! It isn't always so easy to tell if something is creative or interesting. We, naturally, apply our own experience to decide whether your fidgeting gadget assessing if your pet turtle is hungry is, in fact, cool or not. You may try using Google, for instance, to find out if people already did whatever the thing you had in mind. Other than that, trust your cool-instincts and so forth!
