Machines that not just see, but understand their environment are on the horizon, say the organisers the Vision exhibition, which takes place from 8 to 11 November at Messe Stuttgart.
Vision team leader Florian Niethammer says: “Products that previously were only being tested in research centres are increasingly starting to penetrate the market. Embedded Vision in industrial and non-industrial applications and Automation 4.0 are two issues that are expected to be a key focus for industry over the next 5 years as machine vision becomes ever faster, the camera resolutions improve and interfaces are increasingly powerful.
Over 400 exhibitors are expected to attend Vision, and companies already registered include Allied Vision, Basler, Baumer, Cognex, Edmund Optics, IDS, Keyence, MVTec, Opto Engineering, ProPhotonix, Sensopart Sick, Silicon Software and Stemmer Imaging.
