Seeing the Value in Machine Vision Partnerships
Published: November 27, 2014 Content info: 20 Pages

Machine vision is a key component of automation, enabling tasks as varied as unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) navigation, aligning automobile doors in an assembly line, and sorting prescription medications during packaging. Demand for more advanced vision systems is growing daily, but system design is inefficient, and many companies struggle to hire the right talent to develop the systems they need. Academic partnerships can offer an attractive solution for enhancing vision capabilities while speeding development times and gaining access to early-stage technologies. This report surveys the state of machine vision technology today, and the top academic institutions in the field.
