The Industrial VISION Days, under the direction of the Machine Vision Group in the German Engineering Federation (VDMA), is becoming more and more popular every year. This three-day series of talks—featuring more than 40 speakers—provides manufacturers, users and scientists with an ideal forum for exchanging research results or presenting user applications. The range of topics during the Industrial VISION Days extends from economic questions to the right choice in the interface jungle, or measuring and inspection tasks using 3D test systems. In addition to VDMA, other key associations at the show include the European Machine Vision Association (EMVA), the Automated Imaging Association (AIA), The Japanese Industrial Imaging Association (JIIA), the UK Industrial Vision Association (UKIVA) and the Imaging Association of India (IAI).

Innovations are the driving force behind an industry. They keep the ball rolling and prevent it from gathering moss. They are especially important for key technologies such as machine vision. VISION will present the 17th annual VISION AWARD for Applied Machine Vision. This Award is presented for innovative products, system solutions or processes that are pioneering the machine vision industry.

The VISION Academy will contain a wide range of workshops mainly aimed at mechanical and plant engineers for whom machine vision is still new territory and who are intending to shortly introduce the technology in their company. The seminar is suitable for project engineers and technicians from the fields of quality assurance, maintenance and machine management. Five user-oriented machine vision topics will be presented each day.
