The shortlisted candidates for this year's Vision Award have been released. The Vision Award, a 'prize for applied image processing', is presented each year at the Vision trade fair in Stuttgart (held this year from 8-10 November). Imaging and Machine Vision Europe is once again proud sponsors of the award, which honours outstanding products or processes in machine vision and applied imaging.

The innovations presented by the candidates will be judged by a panel of vision experts comprised of Jens Michael Carstensen of Videometer, Hermann Tropf of Vision Tools, Martin Wäny of Awaiba, Dieter-Josef Walter of Daimler, and Michael Engel of Vision Components.

The winner will be announced at an award ceremony during the conference 'get together' on 8 November. The €5,000 prize money will be presented by Warren Clark, publishing director at Imaging and Machine Vision Europe.
