The MIR provides an in- depth insight into future customer requirements and technologies in Machine Vision.
By interviewing both, suppliers and end users in many different industries, the compilation of an extensive survey was achieved.
Discussions with vendors and users of automation technologies about their needs for information has shown that in addition to that valuable information available in our Market Intelligence Reports about the markets and applications, some further future orientated technological topics would be of interest.
The content selected for those topics is a direct result of many discussions with end users and vendors of Machine Vision and vision based automation equipment.
The Market Intelligence Report (MIR) “Future Trends in Machine Vision” therefore is focused on these topics, showing information on important trends collected from more than 90 companies, such as Bluebotics, Cognex, Comau, Dalsa, Edixia, Fatronik, HGV, LMI, Motoman Robotics, MVTech, National Instruments, Sick; Tordivel, Universal Robotics and many more, being active in Machine Vision, most of them with a strong expertise in guidance and robot vision.
Real time detection and the integration of machine vision are the most important machine vision topics for companies focused on robotics and automation in the near future.
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 their expectation for the future potentials of several technical topics and applications and the most pressing user requirements.
The topics addressed and explained within the report include technologies that are already well known such as real time detection, integration and camera resolution but also new hot topics like HDR (high dynamic range), computational cameras and cloud computing for machine vision. To see how important those technologies already are for the industries and which potential for business is to be expected is also one of the goals of the market intelligence report as well as giving clear and understandable explanations for each of the technology topics.
“High” rating of Technologies by Robotic Companies
In order to give broad overviews, provide new information and see trends coming down the road from other “industries”, the companies involved in the report represent different core competences emerging in different regions and many industries as well.
Core competence of the Companies
∗53% of the vendors interviewed identified themselves as System Integrator
∗88,9 % of all companies claim machine vision as core competence.
The report represents information provided by turnkey suppliers, system integrators, product and component manufacturers and manufacturing companies out of Europe and North America, such as, Adept Technology, Bluebotics, Cognex, Comau, Dalsa, Edixia, Fatronik, HGV, LMI, Motoman Robotics, MVTech, National Instruments, Sick, Tordivel, Universal Robotics and many more.
