Vision Award shortlist announced

Imaging and Machine Vision Europe is once again sponsoring the Vision Award, now in its 15th year, at the Vision Show in Stuttgart. The €5,000 award recognises the best paper delivered during the Industrial Vision days which accompany the show, which will take place from 6-8 November.

Entrants for the award submitted abstracts of their proposed papers by the end of July. The papers usually outline a new product or application, and it’s often a good chance to preview future developments in machine vision technology.

Last year’s winner was Silicon Software, for its VisualApplets software, which eases the programming of FPGA processors. These provide parallel processing for machine vision, which speeds up image processing, and the decision of the Vision Award jury recognised just how important this technology would prove to be.

The jury consists of: Don Braggins, chair of UKIVA; Martin Wäny CEO of Awaiba; Roland Beyer of DaimlerChrysler; and Holger Hofmann, vice president of can and packaging at Isra Vision.
