Along with most of the machine vision industry, a team from Smart Vision Lights walked the show floor earlier this month at the U.S. East Coast's largest machine vision conference. It was an exciting week, and not just because - for the third year in a row - Smart Vision Lights won a product innovation award!
Beyond the accolades for our new LED Light Manager, we had a chance to connect with our partners and distributors, and to see what technical innovations will reshape the machine vision industry tomorrow. Advances in image processing software - from IP cores in embedded systems to simplified photometric 3D algorithms - are reshaping our industry faster than ever before. Combined with smart hardware designs, deep learning, and other exciting developments, the machine vision industry is on the cusp of something truly special as we shift from an enabling technology to a driver of innovation across all major industries, from consumer products to transportation. Check out our latest innovations below and stay tuned for a lot more in the next couple of months.
