These are the product updates in release 196.
Release 196 goes live to all production customers on 11/16/2020.
Vision Capabilities (Beta)
Now available in Beta to all Tulip Accounts, Vision turns off-the-shelf cameras into powerful sensors that detect motions and objects in space and capture events, material movements, and more. Use Vision in an app’s triggers to build powerful, complex workflows that record events, provide real-time feedback, and incorporate logic to streamline workflows. Add vision capabilities gradually, remotely, and more easily with flexible, no-code configurations.
The new Vision capabilities include change detectors and jig detectors with more detectors in the pipeline. These capabilities build on the previously-available barcode and QR code reading capabilities. New potential use cases include pick-to-light, material flow, automatic data collection, time studies, and quality assurance use cases.

This detector allows users to print and affix specialized stickers to items to detect movement such as the arrival of material. Change Detection requires a depth camera. Get started with Change Detection.
In this release, we have moved the home of the user settings menu. Previously living in the top navigation bar of the Tulip platform, it now lives under the settings menu in a dedicated user space.
