MVTec puts focus on embedded vision with new hire
In an effort to strengthen its embedded vision business, MVTec has hired Christoph Wagner grow the business as the new Product and Business Development Manager.
Embedded vision is a hot topic with a lot of potential in machine vision, and as a result, MVTec is placing an emphasis on it. With HALCON Embedded, for example, the company has enabled the porting of its machine vision software to a range of embedded platforms. Further, the latest version of 13.0.1 of HALCON supports ARM-based platforms running the Linux operating system.
Wagner, a mechanical engineer, has experience in machine vision, business administration, product management, technical support, as well as research and development. In his previous role, Wagner worked at wenglorMEL GmbH as a technical support manager and product manager for 2D and 3D profile sensors (optoelectronic sensors). Prior to that, he worked at SmartRay, where he held various positions.
At embedded world 2018 in Nuremberg, Wagner will hold a presentation on "Embedded Vision – Efficient Development of Applications Using Professional Vision Software."
"I very much look forward to joining the leading manufacturer in the market for standard machine vision software," said Wagner. "As part of this work, I will be able to purposefully combine my machine vision expertise with my knowledge in the area of hardware development. I am eager to help actively and profitably strengthen the embedded vision technology field – which is equally important for both customers and MVTec – and to broaden MVTec's presence in this international growth market."
