China Machine Vision Union joins G3 Standardization Initiative

June 8, 2015
Joining the AIA, EMVA, JIIA, and the recently-added VDMA Machine Vision, the China Machine Vision Union (CMVU) has officially joined the international G3 global initiative on vision standardization.

Joining the AIA, EMVA, JIIA, and the recently-added VDMA Machine Vision, the China Machine Vision Union (CMVU) has officially joined the international G3 initiative on standardization.

The G3 group, which has been cooperating to promote vision standards globally since November 2009, says that cooperation on standards—which cut down on development time, investment costs, and accelerate time-to-market—is critical to the expanded use of vision and imaging technologies throughout industry.

Representatives from each of the G3 groups offered their comments on the CMVU joining.


"Since the start of the G3 standardization initiative, the global vision associations have met on a regular basis, promoting enhanced communication and coordination on standards activities," said AIA president Jeff Burnstein. "With the CMVU joining the group, we have an even stronger foundation to keep standards development and promotion focused and effective."


"Cooperation on standards is very beneficial for all companies active in machine vision and for the industry as a whole," said Jochem Herrmann, EMVA board member. "I’m therefore very happy that CMVU has joined G3. Through the membership of CMVU, current G3 standards will be promoted more effectively in China, but also Chinese standardization initiatives will be open for the members of the other G3 associations."


"JIIA would like to express our sincere welcome to the CMVU to the G3," said Sachio Kiura, Chairman of JIIA. "We look forward to the CMVU working with the G3 as a major leader in the Asian market, to expand and promote machine vision standards."

VDMA Machine Vision

"In the past few years China has been the most dynamic market for machine vision. Since 2008, exports from Germany have more than quadrupled. We welcome CMVU joining the international cooperation initiative on standardization and look forward to a fruitful cooperation," said Klaus-Henning Noffz, member of the board of VDMA Machine Vision.


"It is our honor to become a member of the G3," said Pan Jin, President of the CMVU. "Joining the cooperation agreement will create a bridge between China and other associations throughout the world. Also it will help us to enhance and extend the development of machine vision by unifying the vision standards. As one of the biggest potential markets, we are willing to contribute to this industry under this cooperation."
