Embedded World 2018 - Inside GNSS - Global Navigation Satellite Systems Engineering, Policy, and Design

Embedded World 2018

Be it security for electronic systems, distributed intelligence, the Internet of Things or e-mobility and energy efficiency – the embedded world trade fair in Nuremberg enables you to experience the whole world of embedded systems.

Discover the innovations from the embedded sector, meet experts and acquire new customers: more than 1,000 exhibitors and numerous speakers from 42 countries will be presenting the entire spectrum – ranging from construction elements through modules and full systems, operating systems, hard and software to services – to more than 30,000 trade visitors and approximately 1,700 conference participants from 73 countries.

Embedded Vision  
Embedded vision enables images to be processed on compact, very powerful computer platforms that nevertheless consume very little energy. As a result, this technology is opening up a lot of new areas of application that could not be covered previously by either PC-based or intelligent image processing (machine vision) systems.

The VDMA’s Machine Vision Group (IBV) and embedded world, the leading international trade fair for embedded system, have joined forces to discuss the migration from PC-based to embedded systems, the potential of this technology and the potential uses and challenges. This is now the second time that they have organized a panel to discuss the trending topic of embedded vision.

“Autonomous driving is currently one of the major trends. Self-driving cars and many other innovations are being made possible thanks to camera-based security systems. The opportunities offered by these ’embedded vision’ systems are many and various,” says Dr. Olaf Munkelt, Chairman of the Board of the VDMA Machine Vision Group. “Embedded vision will open up new areas of application for the machine vision industry, whether in the factory of the future, everyday traffic, retail trade or the consumer or medical sectors. Many visions of the future can only be realized with ’embedded image processing’.”

“We are seeing a lot of interest in the subject on the part of developers and users of embedded systems,” says Benedikt Weyerer, Executive Director embedded world, NürnbergMesse, adding: “We are therefore delighted to be working with the VDMA to put the spotlight on this issue of embedded vision at the conference and trade fair. We are very much looking forward to the panel discussion with such high-caliber speakers and to our collaboration with the VDMA’s Machine Vision Group.”
