Prof. David Lowe from the University of British Columbia has compiled a list of companies (mainly in Europe and North America) that develop machine vision (a.k.a. computer vision) products. Useful place to start if you’re considering a career in this industry.

This web page lists companies that develop computer vision products. Computer vision (also often referred to as “machine vision” for industrial vision applications) is the automated extraction of information from images. This differs from image processing, in which an image is processed to produce another image. This page covers only products based on computer vision, and it does not cover image processing or any of the many suppliers of sensors or other equipment to the industry.

As many as 2,500 construction workers will soon be racing to finish the world’s largest refinery for so-called rare earth metals — the first rare earth ore processing plant to be built outside China in nearly three decades.
