Dr. Bernd Liepert, President of euRobotics and former Chief Innovation Officer at KUKA, will open the 17th edition of the European Machine Vision Association (EMVA) annual Business Conference, taking place on 16-18 May 2019, in Copenhagen, Denmark.

The opening keynote titled ‘Robotics needs Vision – Vision needs Robotics’ will give insights to the world of robotics and especially to the ongoing projects to uptake robotics in Europe supported by the European Commission.

Abstract of  Bernd’s presentation:

Robots operate in the world around us and vision is their primary sense. Robotics has the potential to impact on every major sector with an estimated worldwide revenue of up to €65Bn by 2020. euRobotics is dedicated to promoting the uptake of robotics in Europe. It is the private side of the SPARC Public Private Partnership in robotics with the European Commission which invests €700M in robotics R&D&I during Horizon 2020 leveraging some €2.1Bn of private side investment. European robotics research and innovation is strong, particularly in service-based applications. For robotics, vision means more than sensing it is the integration with interpretation, analysis and learning, edge-based AI, built into dynamic mechatronic systems that can deliver a step change in object grasping and manipulation, in inspection and for human robot interaction. There is a long and strong relationship between robotics and vision and a shared future we should explore.

The EMVA Business Conference will take place 16-18 May 2019 in Copenhagen, Denmark.
