The number of visitors to the Vision Stuttgart trade fair in November increased by 14 per cent compared to the 2016 event.

The total number of visitors was recorded at 11,106, with the proportion travelling from abroad rising to a record 47 per cent.

In a survey, visitors expressed the opinion that the significance of the trade fair will continue to increase in the future (60 per cent) or remain consistently high (38 per cent).

Deep learning and embedded vision were both highlighted at the show, while Photoneo won the Vision Award for its 3D structured light tech that’s able to image motion.

‘The quality of the discussions and the great visitor interest in concrete solutions are impressive,’ commented Dr Klaus-Henning Noffz, CEO of Silicon Software and president of the VDMA Machine Vision sector group.

‘Machine vision technology has long since established itself as the “eye” and data supplier for Industry 4.0 and countless non-industrial application areas. The innovative strength and dynamism of the industry are promising, so we are already excited to see what Vision 2020 has in store from 10 to 12 November,’ he added.
