The Autumn 2010 issue of the newsletter from the UK Industrial Vision Association (UKIVA), Special Interest Group of the Processing and Packaging Machinery Association, is now available for download from the UKIVA website.

Published twice a year, the newsletter contains an interesting mix of comment, members' news, training course information, technical tips and application stories, as well as an up-to-date directory of UKIVA members.

This new issue highlights the diversity of capabilities and expertise that UKIVA members have to offer end-users, OEMs and systems integrators. Featured application stories include the synergy between solar cell manufacture and the use of solar cell technology in high dynamic range machine vision cameras, and the use of 3D imaging by optometrists for accurate measurement of a customer's face for the manufacture of spectacles.

Technical tips include overcoming power management controls inherent in laptops and PCs which may affect the apparent bandwidth of USB and FireWire cameras, and using a lighting controller to get the most out of LED-based lighting.
