UKIVA newsletter available for download

Share this on social media:

The March issue of the newsletter from the UKIVA, which appeared as an insert in the February/March issue of Imaging and Machine Vision Europe, is available for download from the UKIVA website. Published twice a year, the newsletter contains an interesting mix of comment, members' news, training course information and application stories, as well as an up-to-date directory of UKIVA members.

UKIVA director, Don Braggins, said: 'The newsletter provides a perfect opportunity for members to showcase their latest news and at the same time allows the Association to show the diversity of capabilities and expertise that our members have to offer end-users, OEMs and systems integrators.'

The current issue highlights the growing popularity and capabilities of 3D vision for industrial applications, and several UKIVA members have 3D vision products available. Many members run training courses varying in duration and complexity from 60 minute web-based seminars to 12 week courses.

The featured application stories illustrate the wide range of capabilities that vision has to offer. They include multispectral imaging of coffee beans in the visible and NIR region of the spectrum; the measurement and classification of scallops for the US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration Fisheries Service and the detection, measurement and rejection of defects during the manufacture of aerosol containers.
