Machine Vision Expands in China

The Automated Imaging Association (AIA, has signed a memorandum of understanding with the China Machine Vision Union (CMVU), a recently formed trade association representing machine vision in China.

According to Jeff Burnstein, president of AIA, the agreement outlines a wide range of activities on which the two associations will collaborate, including an exchange of market data, mutual support for trade shows and technical conferences, and promotion of member companies.

“We plan to build upon our initial areas of cooperation within the next year as CMVU grows and accelerates its activities,” said Burnstein.  “Having experienced the difficulties of starting AIA back in 1984, I know how challenging it is to build a strong trade group.”

Dr. Ding Shaohua, chairman of the board of CMVU, signed the agreement for the Chinese trade group on October 26 in Beijing, during the Vision China trade show and conference.
