UKIVA will be presenting its most ambitious free seminar programme ever at the Photonex Show on 14th and 15th October, featuring nine presentations. The Keynote Speech, titled: Vision for Autonomous Driving: Challenges and Opportunities will be delivered by Dr Will Maddern from Oxford University at on 14th October. This will explore the demands on vision technology in controlling a vehicle.
Will is the leader of the ‘Robotcar’ project, which is investigating methodologies for ‘life-long infrastructure-free navigation’ which will be needed to develop vehicles that can ultimately drive themselves completely autonomously
The other seminars will be presented by speakers from Acrovision, Alrad Imaging, Clearview Imaging, LC-Tec Displays, Multipix Imaging, Scorpion Vision, Stemmer Imaging, The Config Team and Ximea. Seminar titles include: Planning ideas for machine vision applications, SWIR applications with InGaAs sensors including on-line inspection, The rise of the CMOS sensor, 3D robot vision applications, 3D inspection applications, Direct part marking – the evolution of using indestructible barcodes in manufacturing, Vision system integration and labeling, Hyperspectral imaging in the machine vision world and Liquid crystal optical components for polarization control in machine vision applications.
Ian Alderton, Chairman, UKIVA, said: “We believe that this programme will be of real interest to visitors to the show and we are running them on both days so that visitors on either day will have the chance to attend."
