MVPro Friday news round-up: from high profits to deep learning

MVPro Friday news

Every Friday we give you a snap shot of the week’s machine vision news; some we’re covered, some we’re about to cover and some we just don’t want you to miss.

We started the week with news about the JENCOLOR SpectroNet Collaboration Conference 2017 is to be held on 30 and 31 August, 2017, at the Technologie- und Innovationspark Jena GmbH, Moritz-von-Rohr-Straße 1a, 07745 Jena, Germany.

Then came some impressive second quarter figures from Cognex. They were record results and the company’s management were rightly proud of what they had achieved with the company and described it as a great quarter. Both revenue and net income showed nigh gains. And what’s more, there was a positive future guidance figure as well.

I’m not quite sure what the CEO meant by “…that we also set a new, and ridiculously high, level of profit.” Let’s hope those words don’t come back to haunt him, but you have to admire his honesty!

And well done Teledyne DALSA for helping two teams achieve success at the recent Unmanned Systems Canada’s national competition. They sponsored the event with their cameras and what’s the betting they get a good look at the talent on show, jus for future reference if course.

We finished with the news that MVTec is to release a new version of its standard software HALCON which aims to set new standards for the use of deep learning.

And FRAMOS is once again conducting its 10th annual international market survey. Entitled “Industrial Cameras, their Technical Features and the Market”, it aims to assess the current status of the imaging industry and expected future developments from camera manufacturers and camera users.
