Innovative Machine Vision Startups Vie for Top Prize at AIA’s “The Vision Show”

Imaging and advanced vision trade association AIA is bringing together its three hundred plus membership in Boston, Massachusetts from April 10th through the 12th for The Vision Show, the largest display of machine vision, imaging components, and industry knowledge in North America.

Serving decision makers and buyers of machine vision and imaging components, the show offers two halls of dedicated pavilions for start-ups, system integrators, and collaborative robotics. In addition, a Technical Conference is being held within The Vision Show that includes training and education programs on these technologies.

The agenda includes accomplished innovators as keynote speakers and a slate of innovative tech finalists for its Startup Competition being held on April 12th.  The five startup finalists are showcasing cutting-edge ideas and technology, while competing for a $5,000 grand prize.

They are:

  • Vtrus Inc., developing autonomous robot inspectors able to extract information from the analog world for safe navigation through spaces.
  • SocialMap, improving user engagement and team productivity through their social behavior intelligence platform.
  • Photius, using Ximera, a three-dimensional measuring system with structured light measurements, photogrammetry, and laser scanning for construction and infrastructure management.
  • LogoGrab, detecting company logos in images and video through a high-precision logo recognition API.
  • Fastree3D, furthering machine and vehicle automation through a new generation of LiDAR able to eliminate false positives and negatives.

The judges for the competition are Steve Wardell, director, imaging, ATS automation and vice chair of AIA, Hyperplane Venture Capital managing partner Vivjan Myrto, and Schematic Ventures partner Julian Counihan.

Helen Greiner, speaking on April 10th, is the co-founder of iRobot and currently CTO of CyPhyWorks. The latter is a start-up specializing in small multi-rotor drones for the consumer, commercial and military markets. On April 11th Diego Prilusky, General Manager for Intel Studios, will deliver the keynote address. Prilusky oversees the technical and creative direction and day-to-day operations of the Los Angeles-based immersive media studio. This includes driving innovation and adoption of volumetric video technologies and production techniques.
