Registration is now open for the second day of Stemmer Imaging's UK Vision Technology Forum at the Silverstone Wing Exhibition and Conference Centre, 15/16 November 2017. Visitors can choose between the completely free standalone technology day on 16 November, which follows a similar format to the previous Forums, or a two-day package that also includes an in-depth one-day training course on 15 November, together with gala dinner with entertainment and overnight accommodation.
The UK Forum is part of five events being held across Europe. The free-to-attend Day 2 offers visitors a wide range of opportunities to learn more about machine vision. It is designed to appeal both to newcomers and the most experienced vision practitioners. It combines the following elements to provide a distinctive learning environment:
- A rich programme of technical seminars
- A new Integrator Zone showing real-life applications
- Hands-on practical taster sessions
- A tabletop exhibition
Visitors can extend their knowledge on state-of-the-art vision technologies and developments in machine vision within a very short time period. The day will be packed with technical information and informative live demonstrations, as well as interesting conversations with some of the world's leading experts in machine vision.
There will be opportunities to learn about current trends such as Industry 4.0 (IoT), Embedded Vision and Deep Learning and how those trends affect machine vision. It also offers a chance to see and find out more about Intel's latest 400 series of RealSense 3D imaging technology for embedded applications.
The technical seminar program is very diverse, featuring more than 40 presentations across six parallel tracks. The informative lectures contain content from international machine vision manufacturers and experts. The full seminar timetable is available on the Stemmer Imaging website. This includes abstracts for each presentation to allow visitors to focus on the topics that are of interest and to create their personal seminar schedule for the day when they register.
Applications and hands-on tasters
For the first time the UK Forum features an Integrator Zone. This gives visitors a chance to see real-world applications in action and meet with experienced vision systems integrators. This is a good opportunity to explore the possibilities offered by fully integrated vision systems.
The ever-popular hands-on practical taster sessions return. Early booking is recommended for these as places go quickly. This year, three sessions are available:
- 3D measurement using the LMI Gocator, 'a Step by Step guide'
- Creating machine vision applications in Teledyne DALSA BOA smart cameras
- How to create your first machine vision solution in Sherlock multi-camera software
During both days of the event, around 40 machine vision manufacturers will showcase their developments, systems and products in a tabletop exhibition. This enables visitors to find out more about innovations and discuss strategies with the exhibitors.
