The Association for Advancing Automaton, or A3, will host its annual vision and imaging show in Boston next week. Boston Dynamics, NVIDIA, Sony Electronics, and Microsoft will give keynotes during the show, which will be held at the Hynes Convention Center.
The Vision Show will also include more than 50 sessions divided into four categories: vision integration, applications and technologies, artificial intelligence and industrial internet of things, and vision and robotics.
A3 claims to be one of the leading global advocate for the benefits of automating. Members of A3 represent nearly 1,100 automation manufacturers, component suppliers, system integrators, end users, academic institutions, research groups, and consulting firms that drive automation forward worldwide.
More than $1.58 billion in machine vision components ($227 million) and systems ($1.35 billion) were spent in the first half of 2022, according to A3. These volumes exceeded the previous records set in 2021 by 6.2% overall.
“In today’s increasingly connected and automated world, machine vision and imaging systems are integral to nearly every automation system, so it isn’t surprising to see this industry booming along with the robotics industry,” said Jeff Burnstein, president of A3, which helps develop the global standards for the vision industry and boasts hundreds of vision and imaging suppliers and integrators among its member companies.
“At The Vision Show, companies can find the right solution providers, the right technology, and the right expertise to implement vision and imaging systems where they’re needed to improve their automation processes now and, in the months, and years to come,” he added.
