Microscan Provides Expertise for Machine Vision Lighting Course

Microscan, a global technology leader in barcode, machine vision and lighting solutions, announces the instruction of an educational machine vision course and product demonstrations at The Vision Show.

RENTON, WA, March 31, 2014 - Microscan, a global technology leader in barcode, machine vision and lighting solutions, announces the instruction of an educational machine vision course and product demonstrations at The Vision Show. The Vision Show is organized by the Automated Imaging Association (AIA) and is scheduled to take place April 15-17, 2014 at the Hynes Convention Center in Boston. In Booth 323, Microscan will actively demonstrate their wide range of products including the latest innovations in AutoVISION® machine vision software and hardware.


In addition to in-booth product demonstrations, Microscan course instructor Dr. Jonathan Ludlow will be instructing "Advanced Vision Lighting", the 2nd tutorial in the AIA's CVP program and part of its advanced certification track. It will take place at The Vision Conference from 8:00 to 10:00 AM on Monday, April 14. Dr. Ludlow will guide users in designing lighting for complex applications such as these, and cover topics including color, polarized light, strobing, and new developments in lighting control. In the course of the presentation, attendees will learn to improve lighting engineering skills by taking an analytical look at everyday images in movies, TV, and photo journalism.

Dr. Ludlow, Machine Vision Product Promoter, has instructed machine vision technology courses for AIA for multiple years and brings more than 20 years of expertise in machine vision technology. He has authored papers on the application of machine vision in semiconductor packaging and electronic assembly, holds several patents relating to inspection systems, and is a regular speaker at machine vision symposia.

ST Robotics Develops the Workspace Sentry for Collaborative Robotics

The ST Robotics Workspace Sentry robot and area safety system are based on a small module that sends an infrared beam across the workspace. If the user puts his hand (or any other object) in the workspace, the robot stops using programmable emergency deceleration. Each module has three beams at different angles and the distance a beam reaches is adjustable. Two or more modules can be daisy chained to watch a wider area. "A robot that is tuned to stop on impact may not be safe. Robots where the trip torque can be set at low thresholds are too slow for any practical industrial application. The best system is where the work area has proximity detectors so the robot stops before impact and that is the approach ST Robotics has taken," states President and CEO of ST Robotics David Sands.
