EMVA European Machine Vision Forum
Accuracy, Reliability and Limits of Machine Vision

The forum aims to foster interaction between the machine vision industry and academic research to learn from each other, discuss the newest research results as well as problems from applications, learn about emerging application fields, and to discuss research cooperation between industry and academic institutes. The overall goal is to accelerate innovation by translating new re­search results faster into practice.

The first keynotes are definded and we proudly present:

Terahertz Light-Field Imaging and Sensing with Silicon Integrated Circuits

Prof. Dr. Ullrich Pfeiffer, University of Wuppertal

Ullrich Pfeiffer received the Ph.D. in physics from the University of Heidelberg, Germany, in 1999.
Till 2006 he was with the IBM T.J. Watson Research Center. Since 2008 he holds the High-frequency and Communication Technology chair at the University of Wuppertal, Germany. His current research includes the design of silicon integrated circuits for THz applications. Among other awards, he is the recipient of an ERC and European Young Investigator Award, the co-recipient of the 2004 and 2006 Lewis Winner Award, as well as the 2012 and 2018 Jan Van Vessem Award at the ISSCC Conference. In 2017 he received the Microwave Prize. He is a Fellow of the IEEE, served as a IEEE SSCS Distinguished Lecturer, has authored and co- authored 200+ publications, and has been the co-inventor of 10+ US and international issued patents, relating to RF, millimeter-wave, terahertz communication/imaging circuits and sensors

Tazza! A 3D-Based Robot Pick-and-Place Vision System

A luxury porcelain manufacturer based outside Florence, Italy has been a leader in handcrafted, elegantly designed tableware going back to the 18th century. Porcelain, otherwise referred to as fine china, it is renowned for its strength, durability, and pristine white color.
Yet, it is precisely that immaculate white color which poses numerous manufacturing challenges. For a robot arm to accurately locate raw white teacups on the production line and accurately place them in rows, a 2D vision system was not up to the task of distinguishing the different sizes, shapes, and positioning of the product.
