Cognex Corp., a supplier of machine-vision systems, announced that it will add 100 cities to its schedule of machine-vision seminars, extending them through November.

All participants will receive the Cognex VisionGuide, a comprehensive machine vision reference that includes application examples, preliminary design considerations, a multi-media tutorial on building vision applications, lighting and optics videos, and a utility package that helps determine the field of view and resolution requirements of vision applications.
