VDMA Technology Days

Research Meets Industry: VDMA Technology Days for Industrial Machine Vision

Under the theme "Research meets Industry", VDMA Machine Vision and Messe Stuttgart organised a joint stand for universities, research institutes and start-ups.

The concept and goal of the VDMA Technology Days 2018 was to give young companies and research projects with high application and market potential the opportunity to present themselves at the world's leading trade fair for machine vision and to bring representatives from research and industry into a direct exchange.

Trade visitors could expect innovations, know-how and more information about the newcomers of today and tomorrow! Three start-ups, an EU research project and three research institutes were available for discussions.

Exhibitors at VDMA Technology Days 2018:

  • Deevio.io (WATTx GmbH): Deep learning as a means of supporting manual inspections in manufacturing
  • K|Lens GmbH: An innovative lens concept and machine vision algorithms for 3D image capture using standard cameras
  • TERZ Industrial Electronics GmbH: Communication equipment, data storage technologies, and network components for industrial automation (farm vehicle equipment, utility vehicles, robotics, machine vision, and much more)
  • The MoonVision GmbH: “Few-shot detection” – a platform and methodology for object recognition, no expertise required
  • Fraunhofer IOSB / Karlsruhe Center for Material Signatures (KCM): Infrastructure for using hyperspectral data
  • Darmstadt University of Applied Sciences, Department of Optical Technology and Machine Vision: Near-infrared hyperspectral imaging – new methods for simple NIR capture of spectrally resolved images
  • Instituto Tecnológico de Informática (Valencia): ZeroGravity3D – occlusion-free devices for surface inspection and contactless 3D in-line measurement equipment (GD&T)
  • TULIPP (an EU-funded project): Easier development and optimisation of machine vision algorithms for low-power embedded systems
