"Vision in Action"
Programme of Tutorials and
‘Vision in Action’ is the theme of the annual seminar programme organised by the UKIVA at the Vision UK focus at the Photonex Exhibition.
These seminars are designed to keep existing and potential users of vision up-to-date with the latest technology and reflect the breadth of vision capabilities across many different disciplines and industries. This interesting mixture of presentations ranges from industrial to scientific applications, as well as looking at uses of vision in everyday life.

10.45. Ellen Barker,
Hamamatsu, Second generation sCMOS cameras and their application to high sensitivity / high speed imaging.
Since their introduction 3 years ago, Scientific CMOS cameras (sCMOS) have provided increased performance without the traditional compromises associated with CCD and EMCCD cameras, and are enabling significant new research to be performed. The limit of optical resolution is being pushed back by new super-resolution techniques, taking advantage of the speed and sensitivity of sCMOS as well as advances in fluorescent probes, allowing imaging detail to be captured that was not previously possible. Hamamatsu's ORCA Flash4.0 is the latest addition to Hamamatsu's range of sCMOS cameras, and as a second generation sCMOS camera it can surpass the performance of EMCCD in many applications.
11.30. Paul Wilson, Scorpion Vision, Machine Vision Apps : Machine Vision for Everyone
A vision app is defined as a Windows program that will process a single vision task. The app is sold with the camera as a package and is licensed to the camera. Typical apps include:
• Touchscreen autofocus
• Multi-camera image logging
• Object locate (X, Y and angle robot coordinates output)
• Object align
• 3D surface inspection
• Colour identification
12.15. Ian Alderton/Raf Slotwinski, Alrad Imaging, Current vision technology trends and Advances in high resolution industrial cameras.
A brief overview of the development digital vision technology will be followed by a discussion of current vision technology trends with a more detailed look at how the latest industrial cameras are combining high resolution imaging with high frame rates. While this allows high performance imaging, careful consideration must be given to handling the large amounts of data produced.
13.45. Mark Williamson, Stemmer Imaging, Selecting the right vision interface to make integration easy.
This will feature a review of the latest data transmission standards for machine vision and how they compare in terms of performance and standards. There will also be a look at how independent acquisition platforms provide flexibility for users and integrators alike.
14.30. Simon Hickman, Multipix, Software in Action.
Take a look ‘behind-the-scenes’ as Multipix Imaging shows how Vision is now an integral part of everyday life. On our roads, in our supermarkets, in the making of products we consume and rely upon each and every day. See how powerful imaging software push the bounds further by creating clever vision solutions, from the use of 3D imaging tools to using colour and texture only to identify and classify. FREE software trial disk for those that attend.
15.30. Chris Varney, Laser Components (UK) Ltd, Laser Diode Modules for Machine Vision
For optimal machine vision performance when using lasers for the illumination, it is important to ensure the selected laser diode module meets the exacting requirements of the optical and camera system. System integrators know well their camera and software needs and to achieve optimum performance some key parameters need to be addressed with the laser module. This talk compares the choices available to machine vision integrators to best exploit the choices available in order maximise their client solution. Demonstration: some laser diode modules will be available and demonstrated during and after the talk.
