New technology makes imaging of greater quality widely accessible which allows to improve performance of vision-controlled machines and handle multiple tasks. Technology availability and affordability provide Russian system integrators (who create solutions out of machine vision components such as cameras, optics, lighting) with new business opportunities towards their current and new customers. Machine manufacturers, vision solution providers and end-users are now able to deal with tasks that were impossible a few years ago due to technology or cost limitations.
Each speaking session is focused on the real value machine vision technology provides for specific customer applications.
