With IDS peak 1.2 you can also use the advantages of Python for programming your uEye+ camera applications. The numerous camera features of IDS industrial cameras can be tested quickly, analysed and prepared for later use in a larger software project. With this techtip, we would like to explain the programming of uEye+ cameras via the IDS peak Python interface in more detail.
We show the basic handling of uEye+ cameras, such as finding and opening the devices, adjusting camera settings and taking images. Furthermore, we will demonstrate how image data can be converted into different data formats for image processing tasks within OpenCV using the IDS peak IPL (Image Processing Library). Also the realisation of a simple object recognition by a deep learning framework like pyTorch can be realised in a few steps. Try it out.
