Where Research Meets Industry - AIT Excellence at the European Machine Vision Forum


The 6th European Machine Vision Forum, organized by the European Machine Vision Association (EMVA), provided an impressive insight into the best achievements and latest research in machine vision, from agriculture to industrial and medical applications.

AIT was at the forefront - demonstrating its excellence in the field of high-performance vision technologies with 4 lectures and a poster presentation.

AIT's pioneering contributions to machine vision

Lukas Traxler introduced AIT’s innovation ici:microscopy, which employs Inline Computational Imaging (ICI) technology. This system enables simultaneous 2D and 3D inspection of moving parts with resolutions down to the μm-range, addressing challenges in industrial production environments such as strict optical specifications and complex object material properties.

Asier Astaburuaga delved into the potential of quantum computing for computer vision, specifically exploring quantum methods for the photometric stereo algorithm. The presentation compared the time complexity of quantum and classical computing, shedding light on the practical applicability of quantum hardware in computer vision tasks.

Vanessa Staderini addressed the challenges of automated visual quality inspection in manufacturing industries. She highlighted the importance of integrating Viewpoint Planning Problem (VPP) and Path Planning Problem to achieve high-speed inspection with high resolution and complete coverage, emphasizing the need to consider the kinematics of the inspection setup during the planning process.

Adam Loch presented an innovative approach to event-based vision with an active LED marker system, promising high temporal resolution and high dynamic range. The proposed system demonstrated fast pose estimation and tracking of markers with minimal latency, making it suitable for applications in robotics and augmented reality.

In his poster presentation Przemyslaw Bartosik, provided a glimpse into real time weld pool monitoring during the wire arc additive manufacturing process. He discussed initial results of a study and explained how monitoring of a weld pool can help to control the welding process and quality of the final product.

And as a recently elected member of the Joint Scientific and Industrial Advisory Board of EMVA, Markus Clabian, Head of the Competence Unit High-Performance Vision Systems at the AIT Center for Vision, Automation & Control, is strengthening cooperation between academia and industry in the field of machine vision.

The 6th European Machine Vision Forum took place October 12 -13, 2023 in Wageningen, Netherlands. More information about the event
