Flexible and Practical AI for Industrial Deployment

David Austin is Sr Principal Engineer at Intel Corp working on AI based solutions for the industrial IoT market. His work focuses on deep learning architecture design, traditional computer vision.

Industrial AI based solutions often struggle to keep up with the state of the art due to the nature of product development and validation cycles vs the speed at which the AI technology and understanding is advancing. It doesn’t need to be this way. Careful consideration of few important AI and computer vision tools and techniques can give outsized benefits relative to pool of available options. In this talk you’ll get an overview as well as insights into some of the practical techniques that advance KPI’s like accuracy, latency, and cost. You will be able to take learnings straight to practical implementation, especially IIoT implementations in manufacturing. Watch video ›

Covid-19 impact on industry events continues
Automatica 2020 in Munich is cancelled

The automatica exhibition scheduled for December 8–11, 2020 will not take place due to the current travel restrictions in Europe in connection with the coronavirus pandemic, which are becoming more stringent.

This decision has been taken by Messe München in agreement and close coordination with the conceptual sponsor VDMA Robotics + Automation and the automatica Advisory Board. In coordination with the industry, Messe München is now developing a compact new in-person event for mid-2021, which will be adapted to the specific circumstances in times of the coronavirus. In addition, automatica is further expanding its digital offering. Read more


Member News

EMVA welcomes new member
TriEye Ltd.

TriEye revolutionizes machine vision with the world’s first CMOS-based Short-Wave Infrared (SWIR) sensing solution to provide mission-critical information for multiple industries and enable imaging in all weather & lighting conditions. Focusing first on the automotive market, we deliver image data where other cameras fail. TriEye’s vision and remote material sensing capabilities dramatically increase the efficacy of ADAS & AV to
prevent accidents & save lives.

SWIR sensing known as a crucial part of the aerospace & defense industries effort to solve the low visibility challenge but failed to reach wide-scale adoption due to its significant cost. TriEye’s nanotechnology breakthrough enables HD CMOS-based SWIR sensing at 1000x cost reduction that will enable the adoption of SWIR for multiple industries.

It was established in 2017 by Avi Bakal (CEO), Prof. Uriel Levy (CTO), Omer Kapach (VP R&D), and is chaired by Dov Moran. Read more

High-speed GigE cameras with integrated JPEG image compression

Image The new LXT cameras with integrated JPEG image compression allow image capture with very high resolution and speed via the widely available and easy-to-use GigE interface.
This means, for example, that 500 frames/s with full HD or more than 1500 frames/s with SVGA can be used without any time limitations. As a result, the bandwidth, CPU load, and required storage capacity are reduced. This simplifies the system design and lowers integration costs. The cameras are optimally suited for capturing long image sequences in which original images can be compressed, transmitted, and stored, e.g., inspection of pantographs in railway, control of continuous material in paper production, analysis of motion sequences in the sports industry, or process monitoring. The first models will become available this quarter. Read more ›

Thermal camera dedicated to elevated skin temperature screening

Image Teledyne DALSA is introducing a new member of the Calibir camera series, the GXF model, which is dedicated to elevated skin temperature screening.

The camera is based on the Calibir GXM, and is optimized for measurement accuracy and thermal stability in the human temperature detection range. The camera can be delivered with a VGA or QVGA resolution and different lenses to cover a horizontal field of view range from 24 to 70 degrees. An IEC 80601-2-59-2017 certification of a system, including the new GXF camera is pending. Like the Calibir GXM models, the new GXF camera is NDAA, Section 889 compliant. Samples are available now.
