Jochem Herrmann to join EMVA Executive Committee
EMVA board is supplemented by strong supporter of standards
Herrmann sees standards within the industry as key enabler for further growth of the machine vision market. "With GEN<i>CAM and EMVA-1288, EMVA is already hosting two important machine vision standards. There are many innovative companies in Europe and it is therefore logical that EMVA will host more standards in the future", says Herrmann and adds: "In addition to my general responsibilities as an EMVA Board Member, I see it as my primary goal to help EMVA achieve its ambition to become an important source for machine vision standards."
According to EMVA statutes, Jochem Herrmann has been invited as the sixth member of the EMVA Executive Committee by the current board members. The EMVA general assembly will be asked to approve this decision in their next meeting.
