On October 10-12, Helsinki Expo and Convention Center hosted the three-day Teknologia’17 trade fair, the leading technology event in the Nordic countries. Roima decided to bring some excitement to the event with our special Roima Casino.
The idea of Roima Casino was to demonstrate Roima’s Machine Vision expertise with a twinkle in the eye. In this game-like demo, a camera application was used to automatically count the values of dice after they are rolled into view of a camera, and the results were automatically reported both to the demo screen and to cloud.
During the trade fair, numerous players tried their luck at the Casino, striving for a few moments of fame and glory on the top of the results list. In addition to the throwing of dices, the demo point inspired many intriguing discussions about the possibilities provided by Roima’s actual Machine Vision offering for the quality and measurements of industrial production.
The building blocks of the demo comprise of components provided by our partner Beckhoff, an industrial camera and self-made wooden structure. The Casino software was built around modules that we’ve used in a number of industrial projects, as well as algorithms of Halcon Machine Vision library. The writing of data into cloud is realized with MQTT communication provided by TwinCAT.
Due to the success of the game, Roima Casino was again opened for enthusiastic contenders at Roima Customer Day organized on November 8 at Helsinki Expo and Convention Center.
