Vision 2009, the international trade fair for machine vision and identification technologies, has recorded registration numbers that are on-target, suggesting similar visitor numbers to 2008 when it opens on 3 November 2009. 'Registration has been running as normal so far. If this trend continues, we will again have around 290 exhibitors just like in 2008,' said Florian Niethammer, Vision 2009 project manager. 'We cannot naturally predict what else will happen up until November, but the situation looks very good for Vision 2009 at present.'

The focal points of this year's event will not only be machine vision components such as cameras, sensors, frame grabbers and LEDs, but also complete systems geared towards user-based problem solutions. These systems will include 3D machine vision systems for the main customer groups, i.e. mechanical engineering, car manufacturing and electrical engineering/electronics, as well as applications from the large number of non-industrial sectors where the use of machine vision is less. Examples include: agriculture during the use of efficient fertiliser spreading systems, in medicine, or in the expanding segment of safety technology.

In addition to the trade fair, a three-day series of talks entitled Industrial Vision Days will provide valuable background information on machine vision innovations and interesting applications in the industrial and non-industrial sectors. These talks are being organised by the VDMA (German Engineering Federation) Machine Vision Group.
