Embedded VISION Europe 2019 is the leading conference in Europe focusing exclusively on the areas of this disruptive technology and organized by the European Machine Vision Association (EMVA), supported by Messe Stuttgart, the organizer and host of the biennial VISION international trade fair. Embedded VISION Europe is aimed at developers and users of embedded vision technologies from all industries. The conference was accompanied by an exhibition of technologically leading companies presenting their embedded vision competence with innovative products, applications and services.

The presentation program included the full spectrum of the embedded vision industry, covering topics such as new hardware compute platforms, embedded vision standards and APIs, specific approaches to optimizing neural networks, as well as real-world examples of the deployment of vision based embedded AI systems. It was framed by a highly frequented table-top exhibition. Cooperation and exchange between the attendees was supported by close to 80 individual booked B2B meetings between the attendees during the conference breaks.

EVE 2019 Presentation Program:

Dynamic area for innovation

EMVA Board of Directors member, Dr. Chris Yates moderated the conference and in his opening remarks stated that “Embedded vision is one of the most dynamic and creative areas for innovation in our industry”. He noted that the importance of embedded vision is demonstrated by the remarkable fact that there are almost certainly more embedded vision systems in use today than humans on the planet. “These systems are transforming our factories, hospitals, transport, and living spaces, by providing machines with greater cognitive ability through vision”, Yates said.

Computational Neural Networks are here to stay

In his closing remarks Dr. Chris Yates stated that AI and computational neural networks have become a dominant topic which will be here to stay. While technological limits have been driven further and further recently the current challenge would be to put a focus on ease of deployment and thus abstracting the complexity of the products that find their way into machine vision applications. For this, he pointed out; further cooperation amongst small and big players would be needed.
