Greg Blackman spoke to the EMVA’s Arnaud Darmont about plans to establish a standard for embedded vision products
Machine vision industry bodies have begun the first steps to define a standard interface for lenses. Imaging and Machine Vision Europe speaks to EMVA's Arnaud Darmont about plans for the standard
Technology that advances 3D imaging, makes lenses more resistant to vibration, turns a CMOS camera virtually into a CCD, and makes SWIR imaging less expensive, are all innovations shortlisted for this year’s Vision Award, to be presented at the Vision show in Stuttgart

The Modulation Transfer Function (MTF) curve is an information-dense metric that reflects how a lens reproduces contrast as spatial frequency (resolution) varies. MTF curves can be used to compare the performance of multiple lenses and can help determine if an application is actually feasible with the respective lens.
The European Machine Vision Association has appointed Arnaud Darmont as its new standards manager, who will be responsible for identifying new standardisation needs
Stemmer Imaging’s series of technology days included talks from various lens manufacturers. Here, we round up some of what was discussed at the event
Professor Dr Bernd Jähne at HCI, Heidelberg University, and an EMVA board member, argues that an open lens-camera communication standard would greatly benefit the machine vision community
Camera systems measuring millimetres and costing only one dollar are now possible thanks to electronic and optical developments in wafer-level technology, Ams's Antonio Gomes said at Embedded Vision Europe in Stuttgart. Matthew Dale reports

Imaging lenses used in many industrial machine vision applications have special requirements beyond those of standard imaging lenses. The lenses used in factory automation, robotics, and industrial inspection have to work in specific and demanding environments, which could involve vibrations, shocks, temperature changes, and contaminants. Because of these environmental requirements, new classes of ruggedized lenses are being designed specifically to work in a multitude of different scenarios, therefore creating different types of ruggedization. There are three distinct types of ruggedization available: Industrial Ruggedization, Ingress Protection Ruggedization, and Stability Ruggedization.
