Welcome to embedded world Newsroom!
Autonomous driving will be one of the major trends in the years and decades to come. Camera-based safety systems will pave the way for self-driving cars and many other innovations. Many opportunities created by these embedded vision systems can only be imagined – but they are on their way!
The potential inherent in these technologies, how long it will take until the breakthrough takes place and what is already reality today will all be discussed in a special panel discussion on the trend topic "Embedded Vision", which will be organised by VDMA Machine Vision and the embedded world, the world’s leading trade fair for embedded systems.

"Embedded Vision will open up new fields of application for the machine vision industry – whether it is in the factory of the future, traffic, retail, consumer products or in the medical sector. Many future visions can be realised only with embedded vision. The topic evokes great interest – among the machine vision community as well as among developers and users of embedded systems," says Olaf Munkelt, Chairman of the Board of VDMA Machine Vision. Benedikt Weyerer, Director Exhibitions, NürnbergMesse adds: "With embedded vision the embedded world will once again be introducing a topic of the future. Machine vision is an important subject and the embedded world is the right place to present it. We are looking forward to a panel discussion featuring high-calibre participants and to cooperating with VDMA Machine Vision."

Machine vision – a growth market
The machine vision industry in Germany and Europe has been reporting high growth numbers and record sales figures for years. Sales in the industry have more than doubled in the years 2005 – 2015. The German machine vision industry alone achieved in all likelihood a record turnover of 2.3 billion euros in 2016 (+11 percent).
