EMVA Business Conference 2018
EMVA Young Professional Award 2018

Prestigious industry award rewards outstanding work with prize money, presentation at EMVA Conference in Dubrovnik and free entry at European Machine Vision Forum 2018.

The EMVA Young Professional Award is an annual award to honor the outstanding and innovative work of a student or a young professional in the field of machine vision or computer vision.

It is the goal of the European Machine Vision Association to further support innovation in our industry, to contribute to the important aspect of dedicated machine vision education and to provide a bridge between research and industry. In this context, with the call for applications for the Young Professional Award 2018 the EMVA would like to specifically encourage students and young scientists from European institutions to focus on challenges in the field of machine vision and to apply latest research results and findings in computer vision to the practical needs of the machine vision industry.

“Women in Engineering” now in Austria


The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) is one of the world’s largest organizations dedicated to the advancement of technologies for the benefit of humanity. With Women in Engineering (WIE), the IEEE has a professional organization dedicated to advancing female engineers and inspiring girls around the world to pursue a career in engineering.
In Austria, IEEE Women in Engineering currently has 20 members. Co-founders of the Austria Section are the AIT staff members Nicole Brosch, Junior Scientist at the Center for Vision, Automation & Control and Johanna Schmidt, Scientist at the Center for Mobility Systems. Together with Katharina Krösl, member of the VRVis Center for Virtual Reality and Visualization and PhD student at the Institute for Computer Graphics and Algorithms of the Vienna University of Technology, the scientists have big plans for the establishment of the network: In addition to a Women-in-Engineering-Award for papers, a regular round table, lectures and internships will be organized. It is currently being considered that the project should be extended to Germany and Switzerland, so that female students and young female researchers can gain practical experience in other countries as well.

Case Study

Windshield Insertion System

Manual insertion of glass into car bodies is labour intensive and
imprecise, with the opportunity for body damage and glass breakage leading to significant safety risks to assembly operators. Alternatively, robotic insertion methods are complicated because the car body location is not precise, and therefore requires vision guidance to transform robot end effectors to compensate for body location variation and to optimize the position of the glass.

State-of-the-art new software delivers enhanced multi-camera control

Image Active Silicon has announced the launch of ActiveCapture – its latest front-end software for FireBird frame grabbers. The software application provides optimized image acquisition and display by allowing the user to access and control all cameras and frame grabbers in a clear and intuitive manner. ActiveCapture is a GenICam GenTL program that can be used with cameras supporting GenICam, such as CoaXPress, and Camera Link cameras using CLProtocol. It is also designed for use with non-GenICam Camera Link cameras. Full specifications of ActiveCapture are available online.
