EMVA is pleased to present two top speakers who will address

‘Vision-based Autonomous Navigation’ and ‘Photonics & Machine Vision’

‘Vision-based Autonomous Navigation’

Matija Kopić built his first startup, Farmeron, in 2012, and the company grew into one of the most known startups in Croatia.

In 2017, he co-founded the robotics and AI company Gideon Brothers, one of the global pioneers developing autonomy technology for industrial environments based on 3D visual perception.

Abstract of Matija Kopic´s presentation:

The presentation will focus on the fundamental components of an AI-based 3D Visual Autonomy for mobile robots, while also addressing the benefits of such technology in the more automated economy of the future.

Recent advances in Perception Sensors, Computer Vision, ML, Edge and Cloud Computing are rapidly propelling mobile robots to new levels of productivity, reliability, and safety. COVID-19 has exacerbated these trends, accelerating the need for mobile robots to help humans.

‘Photonics & Machine Vision’

François Simoens carried out seven years of research in the accelerator field at CEA Saclay, before joining CEA-Leti in Grenoble in 2003 with the position of program manager and expert in infrared and THz sensors.

From 2015 to 2018, Francois has been the Marketing and Strategy Manager for the imaging technologies and systems developed at Leti from X-ray to Far-Infrared. Since 2019 he acts as the Director of the LETI strategic program named ‘miniaturized LIDAR – CPS’.….
