Renton, WA (Vocus/PRWEB) March 16, 2011
Microscan, a global technology leader in barcode, machine vision and lighting solutions, announces that its Machine Vision Product Manager, Dr. Jonathan Ludlow, will instruct an educational course on “Advanced Machine Vision Lighting” as part of the Automated Imaging Association (AIA)’s Certified Vision Professional Program. The CVP program provides educational courses and skills testing for machine vision professionals at the AIA’s conferences and tradeshows, including Automate 2011, which will take place March 21-24, 2011 at McCormick Place in Chicago, IL.
Proper lighting is essential to the success of any machine vision application, but can be difficult to achieve in configurations that include large objects, curved surfaces, or otherwise hard to light geometries. In “Advanced Machine Vision Lighting”, Dr. Ludlow will guide users in designing lighting for complex applications such as these, and cover topics including color, polarized light, strobing, and new developments in lighting control. In the course of the presentation, attendees will learn to improve lighting engineering skills by taking an analytical look at everyday images in movies, TV, and photo journalism. The course is the 13th tutorial in the AIA’s CVP program and part of its advanced certification track. It will take place at Automate 2011 from 1:00 to 3:00 PM on Tuesday, March 22, 2011 in room N426b on the 4th floor.
Course instructor Dr. Jonathan Ludlow, Machine Vision Product Manager, has been instructing machine vision lighting and technology overview courses for Microscan since 2008. He has been active in machine vision product development for many years, has authored papers on the application of machine vision in semiconductor packaging and electronic assembly, holds several patents relating to inspection systems, and is a regular speaker at machine vision symposia.
