‘Vision in Action’ is the theme of the annual seminar programme organised by the UKIVA at the Photonex Exhibition at the Ricoh Arena, Coventry 17-18 October, 2012. The seminars are designed to keep existing and potential users of vision up to date with the latest technology and reflect the breadth of vision capabilities across many different disciplines and industries.
The speakers will be vision specialists from Alrad Imaging, MultiPix Imaging, Scorpion Vision, Stemmer Imaging, Laser components (UK) Ltd and Hamamatsu. The programme will be delivered on both days of the exhibition. Seminar titles are:
- Current vision technology trends and advances in high-resolution industrial cameras
- Software in Action
- Machine vision for everyone with a low-cost machine vision ‘app’
- Selecting the right vision interface to make integration easy
- Laser Diode Modules for Machine Vision
- Second-generation sCMOS cameras and their application to high sensitivity/high speed imaging
This interesting mixture of presentations ranges from industrial to scientific applications, as well as looking at uses of vision in everyday life such on the roads, in supermarkets and in product manufacture. Camera technologies discussed include industrial cameras combining high-resolution imaging with high frame rates and scientific CMOS which are pushing back the limit of optical resolution using new super-resolution techniques to capture detail that was not previously possible.
On the industrial vision side, there will be a review of the latest data transmission standards for machine vision and how they compare in terms of performance and standards, and a look at the choices available to machine vision integrators to match laser diode illumination to the optical and camera system. The availability and functionality of low-cost vision apps (Windows programs sold with a specific camera that will process a single vision task) will also be discussed.
