We are very proud to announce that IMS is coordinator, with the Fraunhofer Project Center as project manager, of a project called PRISMA. This project is a collaboration of 5 industrial partners and 2 research institutes in Overijssel, that has been granted with 875.000 euro subsidy from the European Union.

PRISMA project

Within PRISMA, the industrial companies IMS, AWL, SCM 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, to develop an integral, adaptive vision technology method that can be integrated in existing and new production system for various applications in automotive, health and food industry.

The goals of PRISMA are:

  1. To acquire new knowledge and perspectives on the functioning and application of state-of-  the-art vision technology;
  2. To develop innovative data-acquisition systems and methods in industrial processes based on vision technology and sensoring systems for process implementation and product quality inspection purposes;
  3. To develop new data-analysis systems and integration in operating systems for advanced manufacturing production processes targeting precise production;
  4. To create a creative collaborative environment in which new vision technology developments take place continously in close collaboration of industry, education and government.

In a 2-year period PRISMA will deliver demonstrators to experiment and showcase the capabilities of machine vision, and support industries in understanding and exploring Industry 4.0.

Kick off

Innovation hub Perron038 in Zwolle, is the place where the involved parties work together on this very innovative project. The kick off of this project will be hosted at Perron038 on January the 30th during the Smart Industry event 2020.
