Microscan, a global technology leader in barcode, machine vision, and lighting solutions, announces that it will instruct a course as part of the AIA Certified Vision Professional (CVP) training program taking place during the Automate 2015 Conference March 23-27, 2015 at McCormick Place in Chicago, Illinois. Microscan Machine Vision Promoter Dr. Jonathan Ludlow will instruct "Advanced Vision Lighting" covering real world techniques for successful illumination in automated inspection settings on the first day of the Conference, March 23, from 11:00 A.M. to 1:00 P.M.

The AIA Certified Vision Professional (CVP) program allows machine vision professionals to clearly demonstrate their specialized skills in areas related to automated inspection and lighting technology. During the "Advanced Vision Lighting" course, Dr. Ludlow will guide users in designing lighting for complex applications and will also cover topics such as selecting proper illumination wavelengths, dealing with complex part surface geometries, integrating illumination in an application, and controlling back reflections. Attendees of this course will be eligible to complete the CVP-Advanced exam at the end of the training program to receive the CVP-Advanced certification, valid for three years.

Dr. Ludlow, Machine Vision Product Promoter, has instructed machine vision technology courses for AIA for multiple years and has 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. Dr. Ludlow has instructed the AIA CVP course on "Advanced Vision Lighting" at a number of trade fairs over the past five years.

At booth 988 from the floor of Automate 2015, Microscan will also demonstrate automation products for complete part tracking, traceability, and quality control. In addition to products from its line of NERLITE Machine Vision Lighting, Microscan will showcase a wide range of simple, powerful automation products that blur the line between barcode reading and machine vision. This technology includes the companys award-winning AutoVISION Machine Vision Suite and turnkey solutions like the PanelScan™ PCB Traceability System and Barcode Verification Kits.
