Sheffield Hallam University’s Dr Fabio Caparrelli, Senior Researcher, and Dr Mark Marshall, Lecturer in Computing, held a workshop on ‘Machine Vision and Embedded Systems’ over two days in July 2017 in Barnsley.
The sessions saw Sheffield City Region businesses learn how image processing and computer vision can be applied to industrial applications. A hands-on tutorial and workshop had attendees using Raspberry Pi microcomputers to apply image processing techniques in an industrial quality control scenario. The workshop also included the integration of computer vision with sensing, logging and notification systems as part of an overall smart quality control system.
Thanks was given to Dr Caparrelli and Dr Marshall for the hands-on sessions with one attendee commenting “I learnt a lot in a few hours that would have taken days on my own”.
