Developing machine-vision and image-processing systems requires expert knowledge of disciplines such as physics, optics, computer science, and mechanical engineering. In addition to understanding the numerous disciplines required to design today’s high-performance machine-vision and image-processing systems, engineers must keep up with the latest technology, standards, and product developments as they become available.
However, due to rapid technological advances, engineers confront a lifetime of learning to offset the fact that whatever knowledge gained has an ever-decreasing lifespan. That’s why the staff of Vision Systems Design magazine is proud to bring you the most comprehensive and global source of information about the latest news, technology trends, machine-vision components and applications.
The content in each and every issue includes exclusive systems integration articles that explain how technology has been used in real-world applications. By doing so, we hope to inform you of technology that may be useful in your application. To complement the magazine, our website also contains numerous informative resources such as white papers, editorial digests and webcasts.
In fact, at http://bit.ly/VSD-WEBCASTS you will find information on our entire 2018 line up of tutorial-based webcasts to help you replenish your knowledge. Here is the schedule:
