The World's Machine Vision Trade Fair: VISION 2016

Published on November 29, 2016

From November 8 to 10, The Imaging Source took part in the world's largest machine vision trade fair, VISION, Stuttgart. Naturally, the topics 3D vision, web-based integration and embedded vision dominated the show as machine vision becomes increasingly central to the newest developments in industrial robotics and automation. Booth visitors enjoyed refreshments while acquainting themselves with the new USB3 Vision-compliant, industrial cameras featuring Sony Pregius global shutter sensors. Available from 2 - 5 MP, these sensors ensure high resolution and excellent image quality: For example, the DFK 33UX250 color and DMK 33UX250 monochrome cameras.

VISION in Numbers and What's Next

According to VISION's own sleek little info-graphic, the show claims over 9,000 visitors - an almost 13% increase over 2014's numbers - from 58 countries most of which came from the fields of imaging and machine vision, automotive and electronics. Dr. Olaf Munkelt, CEO of MVTec Software and Chairman of the Board of VDMA Machine Vision, himself noted "...machine vision technology is no longer confined to a factory environment but is now an integral part of our everyday lives" meaning that we can expect continued growth and paradigm-shifting innovations from machine vision technologies. Thanks to all who stopped by.
