VDMA Technology Days at Vision 2024

October 08-10, 2024 in Stuttgart, Germany

The VISION 2024 trade fair in Stuttgart is the international trade fair for industrial image processing and identification technologies. This time, we are participating in the VDMA Technology Days and presenting the Karlsruhe Center for Material Signatures-KCM. This is a merger of the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) and the Inspection and Optronic Systems business unit of the Fraunhofer IOSB. Every two years, the KCM organizes the Image Processing Forum and the OCM Conference
Visit us in Stuttgart in hall 8/booth.

Image Processing Forum 2024

November 21-22, 2024 in Karlsruhe, Germany

Methods of image processing and their applications

Image processing plays a key role in many areas of technology for fast and contactless data acquisition. For example, in the quality assurance of industrial production processes, in robotics and for driver assistance, image processing systems have gained an indispensable place. This development is supported by the availability of high-quality and inexpensive sensor systems, by the increase in the performance of computer systems, and by advances in the methodology for evaluating image data.

The "Image Processing forum" aims to report on current trends towards solutions in image processing and to contribute to the professional exchange between the participants.

Seminar with practical course - Inspection and characterization of surfaces with image processing (German only)

The inspection of surfaces is a classic field of industrial image processing and has been proven in many applications for many years.

Image Processing for Surfaces - Advances in technology not only enable ever higher inspection speeds and more compact systems, but also, in addition to the evaluation of two-dimensionally recorded textures, the complete recording of complex 3D surface structures down to the nanometer range. Furthermore, the rapid evaluation of colored, patterned, transparent, highly reflective or mirroring surfaces is possible. In the seminar, different inspection and analysis methods will be presented for this purpose.

We are involved with the following contributions:

Image acquisition in surface inspection
