SmartGiant is developing a new generation of ACE vision platforms for industrial/commercial application scenarios — AI cameras (Argos) for image acquisition, edge computers (Cratos) for parallel computing, and vision software (Eos) for online inspection, configuration, and debugging. The working distances of AI cameras cover 18–1000 mm, enabling both high resolution and fast inspection. Autofocus, global shutter (shooting while moving), and PC-free decoding features are also available for different application scenarios.

Argos AI macro industrial camera is mainly used in industrial fixed macro code scanning scenarios, scanning and reading barcodes, QR codes, and micro DM codes on the surface of various types of products in automated production line equipment. It can offer optimized algorithms to direct part marking (DPM) and laser carved code and automatically perform intelligent calibration for flawed images. It also supports options such as autofocus, global shutter (motion shooting), and on-chip decoding. Its configuration is simple and the size is small. There are two hardware configurations to meet different needs: the high resolution is good at multi-code recognition and the high frame rate is suitable for logistics recognition which can meet the code scanning needs during the production process of the electronic products. In addition to supporting industrial code scanning scenarios, Brontes can also be used in industrial visual recognition scenarios such as OCR, LED recognition, and AOI.
