UKIVA plans machine vision conference

06 February 2017

With its first ever Machine Vision Conference & Exhibition, the UK Industrial Vision Association (UKIVA) has developed a new event for the imaging industry in the UK which will take place at ArenaMK in Milton Keynes on 27 April.

The one-day event will feature 50 technical vision seminars alongside over 30 live demonstration stands, giving delegates the opportunity to see and hear about real-world examples of how machine vision is delivering value and creating competitive advantage as well as offering insight into future developments. 

Although a number of specific machine vision exhibitions and conferences take place around the world, the UK has never had an independent event, dedicated solely to the machine vision industry. Historically, machine vision has taken its place as part of other more wide-ranging imaging and optics events and as part of shows in the many vertical markets that it serves. 

However, the UKIVA believes that now is the right time to create a new event in the UK, given that machine vision is a far-reaching technology that has enjoyed significant and consistent growth in recent years.

Free to attend
The free-to-attend conference has been constructed to provide something for everyone, whether they are completely new to vision or experienced vision engineers. Speakers will come from many leading manufacturers and suppliers of vision technology as well systems integrators. With eight separate presentation theatres there is a rich programme on offer covering the latest developments, technologies and applications as well as a theatre dedicated to machine vision basics. 

The various presentation theatres will cover vision basics; 3D vision; software; optics, illumination and lasers; camera technology and embedded vision. Two ‘system and solutions’ themed theatres will highlight areas where machine vision has become indispensable such as label inspection, direct part marking, metrology and robotics while also considering some of the newer challenges such as serialisation and Industry 4.0 and the Industrial Internet of Things. In addition, a ‘Vision Basics’ session will include a series of ‘How to Specify’ presentations for cameras, lenses and illumination as well as the basics of image processing and measurement software tools. The camera technology theatre will include presentations on the latest developments in CMOS sensors; imaging using non-visible radiation such as NIR, SWIR, LWIR, thermal and hyperspectral wavelengths, as well as looking at the camera interface standards for machine vision. 

The conference program will be further supplemented by a series of keynote presentations. Which will highlight many interesting applications of vision technology, while the supporting exhibition will provide an opportunity to see first-hand some of the latest vision products and technologies. With the presentation theatres conveniently arranged around the periphery of the exhibition space, delegates can easily visit the exhibition during the conference coffee and lunch breaks or if they have a spare slot in their individual presentation schedule.
