Final call released for Vision Award entries
Messe Stuttgart has released a final call for entries for the Vision Award, which will be presented for the 22nd time at the Vision trade fair in Stuttgart, Germany from 8 to 10 November.
Companies and organisations have until 22nd July to submit their entry. The Vision Award, a prize for applied machine vision, is sponsored by Imaging and Machine Vision Europe. The winner will be presented with the award and €5,000 prize money during a ceremony at the Stuttgart trade fair.
Odos Imaging won the award in 2014 with its high resolution 3D time-of-flight system suitable for integration into industrial solutions.
The prize, judged by industry experts, is a gauge of technological developments and trends in the vision industry. ‘The breadth of winners in recent years has ranged from fixed players in the market, to institutes and younger companies, which are particularly dynamic and agile at developing and driving forward new issues,’ commented Florian Niethammer, team leader of the Vision show.
The submissions have ranged from 3D surface inspection, to an open-source smart camera and a full-body scanner in 1992.
The judging panel is made up of: Jens Michael Carstensen (Videometer); Gabriele Jansen (Vision Ventures); Ronald Müller (Vision Markets); Dr Christian Ripperda (Isra Vision); Martin Wäny (Awaiba); and Dieter-Josef Walter (Daimler).
Organisations can register their entry for the award on the Messe Stuttgart website.
