European Machine Vision Forum

Image Processing Algorithms —
From low level to deep learning

Image processing algorithms play an increasingly important role in vision systems. The more complex a vision task, the more important is a careful selection of the best possible algorithms. The first European Machine Vision Forum has the focal topic „Image Processing Algorithms — from low level to deep learning”.
Twelve invited top speakers from academics will present the best of recent research progress, which is mature to find its way into applications. One focus is deep learning, which caused significant progress in such diverse subjects as feature selection, object detection, image segmentation, and stereo imaging.
The full programme can be found at http://emva-forum.org/programme.html

Participants can submit posters with their newest algorithms, show any kind of software demonstrations or present new applications areas or open problems. For up-to-date presentations the deadline is 19 August 2016 at http://emva-forum.org/abstractsubmission.html

Case Study

At the frontiers of feasibility – Why 3D-Shape GmbH equips white light interferometers with Mikrotron cameras

How do you monitor the topography of micro parts when the demands of efficient production require short cycle times and high quality? 3D-Shape GmbH performs complex surface measurements using the principle of white light interferometry, advanced sensors, 3D image processing and powerful camera technology from Mikrotron GmbH. Framos Press
Fast three-dimensional image processing technologies are becoming more and more important for quality control of complicated components. They are now superior to tactile measurement systems in speed, flexibility, precision and analytical possibilities. In keeping with the adage “a picture is worth a thousand words,” image analysis allows you to discover complex connections and many object parameters at a single glance.

A few years ago, high precision measurements within industrial production lines were unimaginable. Today, reliable quality control with measurement uncertainties of only a few nanometers are possible even with short cycle times. This is true for applications in the electronics, aircraft and automotive industries through to the mold construction of micro parts with highest precision.
