China vision body joins G3 standards initiative

The China Machine Vision Union (CMVU) has joined the G3 standardisation initiative, which aims to promote and enhance machine vision standards.

CMVU is the fifth member to join the group, after the VDMA Machine Vision chapter joined original G3 members the AIA in North America, the European Machine Vision Association (EMVA), and the Japan Industrial Imaging Association (JIIA).

The standards initiative aims to promote communication and coordination on standards activities. Jeff Burnstein, president of the AIA, commented: ‘With the CMVU joining the group, we have an even stronger foundation to keep standards development and promotion focused and effective.’

Jochem Herrmann, EMVA board member, added: ‘Through the membership of CMVU, current G3 standards will be promoted more effectively in China, but also Chinese standardisation initiatives will be open for the members of the other G3 associations.’

The VDMA released a report in 2013 stating that exports from Germany to Asia exceeded those to the rest of Europe in 2012 for the first time, with China representing the largest export market in Asia.

‘In the past few years China has been the most dynamic market for machine vision. Since 2008, exports from Germany have more than quadrupled. We welcome CMVU joining the international cooperation initiative on standardisation and look forward to a fruitful cooperation,’ said Klaus-Henning Noffz, member of the board of VDMA Machine Vision.

Pan Jin, president of the CMVU, commented: ‘It is our honour to become a member of the G3. Joining the cooperation agreement will create a bridge between China and other associations throughout the world. Also it will help us to enhance and extend the development of machine vision by unifying the vision standards. As one of the biggest potential markets, we are willing to contribute to this industry under this cooperation.’
