A Full Slate of Vision Conferences Is Set for Spring

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email
After changes to formats and locations characterized the previous two spring show seasons, systems integrators, end users, and industry professionals once again have a full list of machine vision events to consider in 2022. The Embedded Vision Summit, the European Machine Vision Association (EMVA) Business Conference, SENSOR+TEST, and Control are all scheduled to run between the UKIVA Machine Vision Conference on April 28 and the return of Automate, June 6-9.

Originally scheduled to be held in Sofia, Bulgaria, the 20th EMVA Business Conference will instead take place in Brussels. The three-day event kicks off on May 12. Business leaders and technical experts from the machine vision industry will present and discuss trends and challenges in the industry.

Attendees include CEOs, managing directors, corporate strategists, marketing directors, and technical managers. EMVA general manager Thomas Lübkemeier told Vision Spectra that presentations and discussions will span topics of management, economics, innovation, marketing, and machine vision technology.

“After two digital conference editions, we are happy to welcome the machine vision scene once again in person from May 12 to 14,” Lübkemeier said.

AI at the edge

Running May 17-19 in Santa Clara, Calif., the Embedded Vision Summit will feature four tracks, more than 100 sessions, and an audience of technology professionals from companies developing computer vision and edge AI-enabled products such as embedded systems, cloud solutions, and mobile applications. The event will host creators who aim to bring visual intelligence to products. A dedicated Edge AI Deep Dive Day will debut this year as part of a program covering the technical and business aspects of practical computer vision, deep learning, and visual AI.

“In 2022, computer vision and visual AI will be embedded into thousands of new products across virtually every industry, from construction equipment to toys,” said Jeff Bier, founder of the Edge AI and Vision Alliance and general chairman of the Embedded Vision Summit.

“This proliferation of vision into diverse systems and applications is made possible by a new generation of extremely powerful, energy-efficient processors tuned for vision and machine learning, as well as new software tools and techniques for quickly and easily developing and deploying perceptual AI applications at the edge,” Bier said.

The summit was canceled in 2020 and was held virtually last year.

The spring season will also mark the return of A3’s Automate show. This year’s event will be held at Huntington Place in Detroit after A3 announced in 2019 that the event would move to the new location. The show spotlights cutting-edge robotics, vision, motion control, and more. Over 350 exhibitors have been confirmed.

Automate was last held in 2019. A3 canceled the 2021 event and announced that the show would resume its usual odd-year, biennial cycle following the 2022 show. After this year, the next Automate shows will be held in Detroit May 22-25, 2023, and May 12-15, 2025.

GLOSSARY
machine vision
Interpretation of an image of an object or scene through the use of optical noncontact sensing mechanisms for the purpose of obtaining information and/or controlling machines or processes.
embedded vision
The practical use of computer vision in embedded systems that analyze system surroundings through digital processing and intelligent algorithms. Computer vision uses these processes to interpret meaning from images and video, giving it the capability to interact with its host environment. Usually, embedded vision is not intended to perform like a general purpose computer. Rather, it is designed to perform specific tasks such as driver protection with driver assistance systems capable of...
