  • 4. www.amc-hofmann.comWhy this report?Discussions with vendors and users of automation technologies about their needs forinformation has shown that in addition to that valuable information available in our MarketIntelligence Reports about the markets and applications, some further future orientatedtechnological topics would be of interest.The content selected for those topics is a direct result of many discussions with end users andvendors of Machine Vision and vision based automation equipment.The Market Intelligence Report (MIR) “Future Trends in Machine Vision” therefore is focusedon these topics, showing information on important trends collected from more than 90companies, such as Bluebotics, Cognex, Comau, Dalsa, Edixia, Fatronik, HGV, LMI,Motoman Robotics, MVTech, National Instruments, Sick; Tordivel, Universal Roboticsand many more, being active in Machine Vision, most of them with a strong expertise inguidance and robot vision.03.10.2011 ©AMC- Hofmann 2011 4
  • 5. www.amc-hofmann.comIntroduction: „Future Trends in MV 2011“ PresentationReal time detection and the integration of machine vision are the most importantmachine vision topics for companies focused on robotics and automation in the nearfuture.Almost 100 companies representing industries such as Agriculture & Forestry, Aerospace,Automotive, Food & Packaging, Logistics, Medical Engineering, Military & Defense,Photovoltaic, Security & Surveillance and Service Robotics reported back about theirexpectation for the future potentials of several technical topics and applications and the mostpressing user requirements.The topics addressed and explained within the report include technologies that are alreadywell known such as real time detection, integration and camera resolution but also new hottopics like HDR (high dynamic range), computational cameras and cloud computing formachine vision. To see how important those technologies already are for the industries andwhich potential for business is to be expected is also one of the goals of the marketintelligence report as well as giving clear and understandable explanations for each of thetechnology topics.03.10.2011 ©AMC- Hofmann 2011 5

  • 10. www.amc-hofmann.comMIR: „Future Trends in Machine Vision 2011“ – OutlookMachine Vision traditionally was focused on the industrial markets. Looking back to the 90´smarket leading vendors used this message in their naming such as “Cognex - Vision forIndustry”. In the last years the Machine Vision business changed. It is developing more andmore into other markets and applications outside the traditional industrial business.At the same time technologies and trends from other industries, especially consumerelectronic markets influenced the Machine Vision business and helped to open new areas inthe traditional industrial markets.In the moment we see the world become 3- dimensional – a trend that is pushed from severaldirections: Machine Vision, industrial measurement and consumer markets such as gamingand video entertainment as well. This is only one example showing how things come together,influencing the whole business, changing markets and their vendors.Therefore it is of high importance to monitor all these developments and changes intechnologies and markets. Market Intelligence Reports help you to keep track, be preparedand stay on top of these changes and developments.03.10.2011 ©AMC- Hofmann 2011 10
