The Vision Show comes to Boston

The Vision Show convenes in Boston this week with the goal of helping attendees employ vision technology to improve processes, reduce waste, find results faster, improve decision making, reduce errors, improve quality, increase safety, and stay compliant with regulations.

Several exhibitors and participants have provided previews of what they will be presenting at the show:

  • Micro/sys Inc., a first-time exhibitor, will highlight three camera/vision-ready industrial computer boards, building on the company's 40 years of experience in the embedded single-board-computer market. “We are certain vision will be a part of most embedded applications in the near future, and we are ready,” a spokeswoman said.
  • Espros Photonics AG (epc), a privately owned company founded in 2006 in Sargans, Switzerland, will present its UV, VIS, and NIR photonics system-on-chip technology. The company said its mission is to provide a semiconductor process technology that delivers best-in class-performance for complex low-light, high-speed, hyperspectral-imaging applications. The company will describe its unique “Mountain Fab” facility, to be built deep inside a Swiss mountain to provide mechanical isolation from the outside-world vibration as well as a constant climate and radiation shielding.
  • Pleora Technologies will highlight its video interfaces that allow manufacturers and system integrators to convert existing cameras into GigE Vision and USB3 Vision cameras to lower costs, simplify design, and improve performance for automation, military, medical, and transportation applications. The company will demonstrate a recently released product that converts existing vision systems into USB 3.0, with applicability to scientific measurement and industrial robots.
  • Matrox Imaging will demonstrate release 4 of Matrox Design Assistant (DA) flowchart-based vision software that works not only with Matrox Iris GT smart cameras to run inspection projects, but also any PC with GigE Vision or USB3 Vision cameras. DA 4 is an integrated development environment (IDE) that lets users create an application flowchart and HMI and take projects from concept to completion, without the need for conventional programming. A Matrox 4Sight GPm industrial imaging computer will be used to demonstrate DA 4, which will be available in Q2 2014 preinstalled and prelicensed on specific SKUs of Matrox Iris GT smart cameras and Matrox 4Sight GPm industrial computers, and sold separately for use with generic PCs.
  • Dennis Treece, Colonel, US Army (Retired), and a former director of the Department of Corporate Security and Emergency Preparedness for the Massachusetts Port Authority, will deliver a keynote address titled “High-end Surveillance and Security—How Technology is Helping Protect Us.”
