Embedded vision conquers new areas of application

A high-calibre panel discussion on "Migration from PC to Embedded & from Embedded to Vision" will take place at embedded world 2018.

Embedded vision enables images to be processed on compact, very powerful computer platforms that nevertheless consume very little energy. As a result, this technology is opening up a lot of new areas of application that could not be covered previously by either PC-based or intelligent image processing (machine vision) systems.

The VDMA’s Machine Vision Group (IBV) and embedded world, the leading international trade fair for embedded system, have joined forces to discuss the migration from PC-based to embedded systems, the potential of this technology and the potential uses and challenges. This is now the second time that they have organised a panel to discuss the trending topic of embedded vision.


Migration from PC to embedded & from embedded to vision


When: 28 February 2018, 11:00 – 12:00

Where: embedded world, Exhibition Centre Nuremberg, Forum Hall 3A




-Arndt Bake, Chief Marketing Officer, Basler AG


-Jeff Bier, Founder, Embedded Vision Alliance, and President, BDTI


-Olaf Munkelt, Managing Director, MVTec Software GmbH


-Amir Sherman, Director of Engineering Solutions & Embedded Technology EMEA, Arrow Central Europe GmbH


-Markus Tremmel, Driver Assistance Systems Chief Expert, Robert Bosch GmbH


-Leon Farasati, Director, Product Management Snapdragon Embedded, Qualcomm Technologies Inc.

“Autonomous driving is currently one of the major trends. Self-driving cars and many other innovations are being made possible thanks to camera-based security systems. The opportunities offered by these “embedded vision” systems are many and various,” says Dr Olaf Munkelt, Chairman of the Board of the VDMA Machine Vision Group. “Embedded vision will open up new areas of application for the machine vision industry, whether in the factory of the future, everyday traffic, retail trade or the consumer or medical sectors. Many visions of the future can only be realised with “embedded image processing”. “We are seeing a lot of interest in the subject on the part of developers and users of embedded systems,” says Benedikt Weyerer, Executive Director embedded world, NürnbergMesse, adding: “We are therefore delighted to be working with the VDMA to put the spotlight on this issue of embedded vision at the conference and trade fair. We are very much looking forward to the panel discussion with such high-calibre speakers and to our collaboration with the VDMA’s Machine Vision Group.”

Growth market for machine vision

For years the machine vision sector in Germany and the rest of Europe has been enjoying record sales and growth. The German machine vision industry alone is predicted to have achieved record sales of EUR 2.6 billion (an increase of 18 percent) in 2017.
