Webcast description:

Over the past few years, the term “machine vision” has become more ambiguous than ever, as vision has extended far beyond just the “factory floor.”

In a free webcast on April 25, David Dechow, Staff Engineer, Intelligent Robotics/Machine Vision, FANUC America Corporation, will discuss some of the advances in components and software that are powering recent growth in the machine vision market, along with the applications that are being further enabled by these developments.

Cutting edge technologies to be discussed in the webcast include:
• 3D imaging components and technology for robotic guidance and inspection
• Camera component trends in configurations and interface protocols
• Smart camera advances
• Definition and growth of embedded computing for machine vision
• Multispectral/hyperspectral imaging and application areas
• The next steps for deep learning

The webcast will include technical concepts and general implementation observations along with application examples as appropriate. It will also include a forward-looking projection of the types of applications that will be (or will need to be) addressed by machine vision in the future. Additionally, the webcast will conclude with a question and answer period.
