The Digital World of Computer Vision | APE 04 | March 2022

By Joel Davies -

Computer vision and its solutions – AI, IoT, Digital Twins – are still considered the new kids on the block when it comes to manufacturing. Questions of cost, accessibility and longevity circle in the minds of prospective purchasers. In this extended edition of Automate Pro Europe magazine, we hope to settle your concerns as we guide you through the digital world of computer vision.

Kicking our computer vision quest off, we have an interview with the winner of Dragons’ Den who’s developing the teleoperated robotic tech that could transport a master chef to your kitchen.

Bruno Ménard, Smart Products Division at Teledyne, explores how the manufacturing industry is being turned on its head as AI and deep learning turn quality inspection inside-out.

LMI Technologies details how its 3D laser line profilers power Cyth Systems’ Automated Pallet Inspection System in one feature, whilst in a second article we get a closer look at the Gocator® 2530.

Michael Zapke, Industrial Marketing Lead, Industrial, Vision, Healthcare & Sciences for Xilinx details the difference Time Sensitive Networking makes for scheduling the transmission of information within ethernet networks.

In a feature from Mitsibushi, the company explains how thanks to state-of-the-art automation technology combined with artificial intelligence; a robotics system can test 15,000 individual SARS-CoV-2 samples per day, research new drugs, develop individualised cancer therapies or even create cosmetic formulations.

IDS Imaging reveals its part in helping DIERS International develop Innovative systems for 4D measurement of body statics that can be used for the precise diagnosis of osteoporosis, chronic inflammatory diseases or spinal deformities.

Ivan Zhou, Senior Machine Learning Engineer at Landing AI delivers a step by step on designing an AI-based image acquisition system for machine vision manufacturing the Landing AI way.

Oliver Bird, Business Development Director at Lanner, explores how digital twins can create virtual scenarios and evolve to incorporate artificial intelligence to fully answer “what if” questions in complex manufacturing processes.

Finally, ABB conclude the first edition of Automate Pro Europe magazine in 2022 with its special report that unveils the critical relationship between digitalization and sustainability.

Thank you all for reading. Please enjoy the first pages from the Automate Pro Europe team in 2022, dedicated to the digital world of computer vision.
