AWL joins PRISMA; an European subsidy for collaborative R&D on advanced vision technology
Published on: Jan 30, 2020
The PRISMA project has been granted with 875,000 euro subsidy from the EFRO OP-Oost program. The goal is to develop an integral, adaptive vision technology method that can be integrated into existing and new production systems for various applications in the automotive, health, and food industry. Within PRISMA, the industrial companies AWL, IMS, Tembo, and Tolsma join forces with innovation hub Perron038 and research institutes Windesheim University of Applied Sciences and the Fraunhofer Project Center (FPC) of the University of Twente.
The goals of PRISMA are:
To acquire new knowledge and perspectives on the functioning and application of state-of-the-art vision technology;
To develop innovative data-acquisition systems and methods in industrial processes based on vision technology and sensor systems for process implementation and product quality inspection purposes;
To create new data-analysis systems and integration in operating systems for advanced manufacturing production processes targeting precise production;
To create a creative, collaborative environment in which new vision technology developments take place continuously in close collaboration of industry, education, and government.
In 2 years, PRISMA will deliver demonstrators to experiment and showcase the capabilities of machine vision, and support industries in understanding and exploring Smart Industry.
