Standards Chair discussion round

EMVA and Lakesight Technologies took the opportunity to invite all standard Chairs and Co-Chairs present in Stresa to a round table discussing how standardization has influenced the machine vision industry and what challenges lie ahead. All Chairs agreed that GenICam has become the backbone within the standardization in the last years since nowadays all other machine vision hardware interface standards refer to GenICam as the widely established generic programming interface for all kinds of devices, frame grabber and applications. It was also common sense that standardization has been and still is a big enabler for machine vision technology, since machine vision standards simplify adoption of machine vision technology. Standards reduce learning costs for customers and development costs for companies. This allows the vendors, the integrators, and the end users to focus on their unique aspects, and not waste resources on the mundane. One point made in the Chair session how standardization has changed within the years was in the trend towards software standardization, whereas in former years hardware used to be in the center of standardization activities. Looking into the future of machine vision standardization the Chairs stated that standards can never be an end in itself but instead need to undergo constant evolution both to test and ensure compatibility of new components as well as to adapt components to new and different market needs. In contrary to the successful plug&play approach of existing GeniCam standardization new players such as from the embedded market might be vertically layered instead of horizontally and have less need to integrate interfaces from existing component producers. Also, the current market consolidation might lead to a smaller product variety and thus to less demand for standardization. However, cooperation amongst the existing machine vision standards but also new alliances with standards from related industries was seen to become more and more important by the Chairs. As it was put by one participant of the Chairs session: “We have to reinvent standardization again and again”; and referring to cooperation with standards from other industries: “We should be thrilled when another standard comes along to be used for a higher growing marketplace.” The next International Vision Standard Meeting 2020 will take place May 25 to 29 in Montreal (Canada).
