EMVA Business Conference 2022 | Brussels

More high-calibre speakers get announced

EMVA team goes ahead with introducing this year’s conference speakers.

Prof. Marco Huber in his presentation titled ‘Manufacturing meets AI: Technology Transfer in the Cyber Valley‘ will provide insights into the Cyber Valley, the technology transfer done at the AI Innovation Center and experiences from the various collaborations with manufacturing companies.
The use cases presented range from quality control to robotics to explainable AI. It is intended to demonstrate the benefits of AI in industrial production and to reduce shyness when tackling and implementing AI applications. The presentation closes with an outlook to current trends and upcoming research topics in AI.

Marco Huber is full professor with the University of Stuttgart. At the same time, he is director of the Center for Cyber Cognitive Intelligence (CCI) and the Machine Vision and Signal Processing Department at Fraunhofer IPA in Stuttgart, Germany.

What it takes to bring Industry 4.0 to life –
New Success Factors For Edge Devices

Boris Scharinger
Innovation Manager at Siemens Digital Industries

IT/OT convergence has many implications and challenges – our customers strive for ‘manageable’ and ‘managed’ devices for their mission critical environments.
This presentation anticipates several technology trends from IT management spilling over to shopfloor automation and shows how a modern edge management solution helps MV technology and solution providers to stay on top of this development.

Boris Scharinger is a senior innovation manager, technology and start-up scout in Siemens Digital Industry’s CTO team.His primary focus areas are Artificial Intelligence and High-Performance Computing.

Boris started his professional career with an academic background in Information Systems Management as an IT consultant for CSC (now DXC Technology) and joined their customer Siemens in 2004, holding a couple of IT service management related roles on divisional and global level. He became Chief IT Architect of Siemens IT division in 2008 and joined Atos as an Account CTO for a well-known Finnish high-tech customer.

Siemens hired Boris back in 2015 as a Director for corporate IT Audits in North America where he had the opportunity to dive into data analytics and cyber-security – before he joint Siemens Digital Industry.

Taking place at Steigenberger Wiltcher’s Brussels from 12 – 14 May 2022, the EMVA Business Conference again will be annual highlight for the Vision Tech industry.

EMVA and Khronos Group

New Camera API Working Group started

EMVA and The Khronos Group continue to strengthen their cooperative liaison to foster the creation of an open, royalty-free standard for controlling camera system runtimes in embedded, mobile, industrial, XR, automotive, and scientific markets. Both the EMVA and Khronos have a well-established history of driving standardization to enable the industry to accelerate the development and deployment of new products by reducing fragmentation.
Khronos and EMVA have been collaborating for over a year on this initiative – first with the formation of an Embedded Camera API Exploratory group in February 2021 and now as an official Khronos Camera API Working Group. Weekly meetings for the Camera API Working Group started on March 10 – and any organization is welcome to join Khronos and participate! Read more ›

Reliable PCB Inspection with AT’s IRSX Smart Infrared Camera

PCBs, short for Printed Circuit Boards, are printed circuit boards that are nowadays installed in every electronic device such as mobile phones, radios or laptops. In order to meet the high demands of technical quality, reliable quality assurance is required.
A simple and highly automatable way of quality assurance is via the temperature distribution of the components: the functionality of the PCB is guaranteed if the temperature distribution of the components exactly corresponds to the predefined standard values as soon as voltage is applied.
