Axis will present a Machine Vision Workshop at the Westin O'Hare in Rosemont, IL, September 27. The seminar is free to attend, runs from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m., and includes a continental breakfast with beverages.

The seminar is designed for managers, engineers, and technicians who want to learn how to set up, program and integrate a complete vision system. It is a highly interactive seminar, and all guests are required to bring a laptop running Windows XP or Vista.

Each guest will receive a complimentary copy of Cognex's InSight Explorer software, which will allow the functionality of a real vision system to be simulated on a laptop. Cognex cameras will also be on hand for live demonstrations and interactive discussions.
