VISION 2010: a study in variations of machine vision

As machine vision technologies and products become more established across multiple industries, tradeshows such as the forthcoming VISION 2010 to be held November 9-11 at the New Stuttgart Trade Fair Centre in Stuttgart, Germany, will reflect these trends.

Indeed, during VISION 2010, a panel discussion entitled: “Green Vision – Driving Factor for a Green Future” will focus on how machine vision can be used in systems to protect the environment, conserve resources, increase energy efficiency, and develop more environmentally friendly products.

In addition to highlighting innovations in industrial camera and system design, the show will also include a demonstration of autonomous robot footballers, an application park highlighting the role machine vision plays in testing and production processes, an area demonstrating international machine vision standards, joint booths for startup companies, and a series of seminars for those new to machine vision.

According to the organizers, Messe Stuttgart, attendance is already on track to exceed last year, both in terms of exhibitors (now over 300) and attendees. Those who wish to see the many sides of machine vision would do well not to miss the event.
