Virtual 18th EMVA Business Conference – 26 June 2020
First ever online conference very successful

This year’s EMVA Business Conference, due to the Corona pandemic for the first time ever took place in an online format last Friday.

More than 130 registered attendees enjoyed a perfect mix of presentations addressing various up-to-date technical aspects and updates on machine vision standards as well as how to organise sales processes with the restrictions caused by a worldwide pandemic.

With his keynote ‘Trust in the Age of Fake Realities – Why the Virtual Economy needs more Common Sense‘ Stephan Sigrist, Founder and CEO of the Swiss think tank W.I.R.E., set the day’s highlight.

All conference breaks were efficiently used for prescheduled B2B meetings, this time in the form of online 1:1 video calls.

EMVA President Chris Yates and EMVA General Manager Thomas Lübkemeier are looking forward already, ‘For the first time we did our annual conference as online event and we are very satisfied especially because of the first positive feedbacks received from participants directly afterwards. But obviously we hope to get back to physical conferences, forums and trade shows soon – surely the 2021 Business Conference from 10-12 June 2021 in Sofia will be a very special highlight next year.

Case Study

THIS ROCKS: TerraClear’s rock-picking robot increases productivity for farmers


Automation has become an increasingly critical factor in agriculture and smart farming over the last decade. By utilizing advanced technologies such as smart sensing, machine learning, and robotics, farming processes can be optimized in many innovative ways.
With a true mission to make farming easier and increase productivity, TerraClear is developing an end-to-end automation system which focuses specifically on automating rock removal. By using a computer vision-controlled system to map terrain and identify the size and location of rocks embedded in the soil, the heavy lifting is done by automated machinery which saves farmers a lot of time and money.

New Sony SenSWIR IMX990 sensor available

Image ATD Electronique as a major distributor of Sony image sensors announces that Sony has developed a cutting edge sensor technology combining visible wavelength and SWIR. This brand-new approach addresses and solves major obstacles that until now prevented the commercial breakthrough of the current available SWIR-sensor technology in industrial applications. This summer, ATD expects to receive first evaluation samples as well as an evaluation kit. The latter one can be borrowed temporarily by ATD customers for testing purposes. Read more ›

New software for efficient camera integration

Image Starting immediately, Baumer is offering neoAPI and the Camera Explorer – two new free-of-charge software packages for fast, easy, and efficient camera integration. The software is available for PC- and ARM-based systems under Windows 7, Windows 10, and Linux.
Baumer neoAPI offers efficient camera integration in Python, C++, and C#. The new powerful and user-friendly GenICam camera application programming interface (API) allows quick familiarization thanks to its modern design. This allows Baumer cameras to be integrated into various applications with just a few lines of code – even by software developers with limited experience in the area of image processing. Read more ›

Expands its family of SWIR line scan cameras

Image Teledyne DALSA announces a 512 short-wave infrared (SWIR) line scan camera for machine vision. The latest Linea SWIR model features a cutting-edge InGaAs sensor in a compact format suitable for a variety of applications including food and packaged good inspection, recycling, mineral sorting and solar and silicon wafer inspection.
Like the 1k model, this newest Linea SWIR camera delivers exceptional responsivity and low noise, and allows customers to inspect beyond the visible range.
It offers highly responsive 25 µm pixels, 40 kHz line rate, cycling mode, programmable I/Os, power over Ethernet (PoE), precision time protocol (PTP), and more. Read more ›

3D for 2D vision engineers

Image The job of conducting industrial inspection tasks, such as taking highly accurate height measurements of an object, measuring protrusion of embossed patterns, is usually given to expensive and time-consuming 3D systems. But Euresys has a cheaper and more flexible solution which is available right now. Yuzairee Tahir, VP sales and support APAC from Euresys, takes a look at how 2D vision engineers can have 3D at their fingertips.

The machine vision fraternity knows that it is a complex and computer intensive job to use a 3D point cloud to solve industrial inspection tasks. Read more ›
