National Instruments will run its Vision Summit at its 20th annual NIWeek, when it takes place 4-7 August in Austin, Texas, USA. The conference as a whole will bring together more than 3,200 engineers and scientists from industries as diverse as automotive, telecommunications, robotics, and energy.

The Vision Summit is held on 5-6 August during the event and includes interactive technical sessions and hands-on workshops.

National Instruments’ hardware and software platforms are used by engineers to construct various systems that incorporate imaging, and the company’s Vision Development Module in LabView is designed specifically to help deploy machine vision applications. One of the technical sessions in Austin will examine new features in the module.

Other technical sessions include a discussion of a hardware and software platform for quality control of industrial products; a comparison of GigE and USB 3.0; a look at developing a mobile robot to inspect railway switches; and a session on automated inspection using robotic cameras and smart cameras.

There are also sessions on machine vision in the Cloud, high-speed inspection, robotic microscopes, drug discovery using NI Vision tools, and optics for machine vision. Employing machine vision on the company’s CompactRio hardware platform will also investigated.
