AIA's The Vision Show Opens for Registration

Registration for the Vision Show is now open. Hosted by AIA, The Vision Show educates current and potential vision users about the latest advancements in machine and embedded vision, while offering them real-world solutions to their manufacturing challenges. Taking place April 10-12, 2018, at the Hynes Convention Center in Boston, attendees typically span a wide range of companies and job titles. This year, AIA expects those at the show to include users of vision and imaging technologies, system integrators, automation integrators, makers of collaborative robots, drones, augmented reality systems and more.

With six conference tracks and courses ranging from beginner to advanced, this year's tracks include:

 Vision Integration

 Embedded Vision

 IIOT, AI, Emerging Technologies

 Collaborative Robots

 Certified Vision Professional Basic

 Certified Vision Professional Advanced.

To support AIA's new embedded vision initiative, there will be a track on embedded vision and an embedded vision pavilion this year. AIA has also developed an embedded vision website:, a resource for everyone from the new user to the expert.

In order to examine two of the most important topics in the automation industry - collaborative and vision - The Vision Show will feature a collaborative pavilion on the show floor. Collaborative-focused conference presentations include: the intersection of Industry 4.0 and Collaborative Robots; the Future of Collaborative Robots; and Collaborative vs. Industrial Robots.

"We have hosted The Vision Show since 1996, and every year we see greater interest due to the tremendous advancements being made in the field," said Jeff Burnstein, President of AIA. "Our attendees consistently turn to The Vision Show because they know it is the one place they can learn about new and up and coming technologies and trends, while at the same time have the opportunity to interact directly with the vendors actually making those technologies."
