BARCELONA, Spain, Sept. 19, 2018 — The European Machine Vision Association (EMVA) Board of Directors has announced the sudden and unexpected death of Arnaud Darmont who died on Sept. 12, 2018 after a tragic accident at the White Sands National Monument in N.M.

Arnaud Darmont“With the death of Arnaud, the EMVA and the entire imaging industry lost a bright and driven person who contributed significantly to both educating and advancing the industry” said EMVA President Jochem Herrmann.

Darmont dedicated his entire professional life to the computer vision industry. After receiving his degree in electronic engineering from University of Liège (Belgium) in 2002 he began to work in the field of CMOS image sensors and high dynamic range imaging.

He combined technical enthusiasm for optoelectronics with human values which led him to found his own enterprise APHESA in 2008. He authored several publications and was author of the book "High Dynamic Range Imaging – Sensors and Architectures,” which was published in a first edition in 2013. He was finishing up the second edition to appear this year.

In December 2017, the EMVA hired him as Standards Manager. In this position he oversaw the development of EMVA standards, but also fostered cooperation with other imaging associations worldwide on the development and the dissemination of vision standards.

“Arnaud will be terribly missed," said Herrmann. "Our thoughts are with his parents and his brother.”
