WINDS

WINDS is a joint venture consortium formed by Nisaan, Sony, Exvision and the Ishikawa-Watanabe Laboratory at the University of Tokyo. Professor Ishikawa is the global leader of an innovative concept and algorithm called High Speed Vision, which takes advantage of images at higher frame rate than standard video rate of 30~60fps. High Speed Vision provides a lot of advantages in latency, accuracy, stability, and resolution of computer vision. The charter of WINDS is to evangelize the concept and explore the commercializing opportunities of High Speed Vision. The consortium was initially formed by members who are excited with the broad future of this technology concept, and will gradually add more members.
