PatMax provides accurate feature location despite changes in image angle, size, rotation, and appearance. The software handles variations in part appearance caused by process variations, reflective surfaces, partial occlusion, nonlinear changes in lighting, or uneven image formation. A library of image-processing and analysis tools aids in inspection, measurement, identification, and guidance tasks. Special software simplifies application development and network administration.
