Multimodal Machine Vision Applications Demand Integrated Lighting Solutions

Presentation will begin: Tuesday, July 19, 2022 - 2:15 PM EDT
Presented by: Steve Kinney, Smart Vision Lights

Facing continued labor shortages with no staffing relief in sight, manufacturers and warehouses need to automate increasingly challenging tasks. In this presentation, Kinney discusses the new multicamera, multimodal machine vision paradigm that is required to manage process variables and edge cases that were once handled by personnel. Instead of just a single camera and lighting technology solutions, today’s most complex automation tasks often require machine vision systems that tightly integrate various technologies and are deployed in combination with machine learning. Kinney highlights the latest enabling innovations in machine vision lighting that optimize existing applications and unlock new use cases.
