Take a look at the published technical program for the May 29 Embedded Vision Summit West, and I'm sure you'll agree that it's impressive in both its breadth and depth of embedded vision topics.

Recently published on the Alliance website is an abstract for Nathaniel Fairfield's planned afternoon keynote presentation at the May 29th Embedded Vision Summit, a technical educational forum for engineers interested in incorporating visual intelligence into electronic systems and software to be held in Santa Clara, California. Here's what abstract describes:

Several weeks ago, a previous news post published on the Alliance website forecasted (based on plentiful information leaks) that HTC was set to shortly unveil a new premium smartphone with a dual rear camera arrangement. That prognostication indeed came to pass, with the March 25 unveiling of the 2014 edition of the HTC One.

3D (i.e. depth-discerning) cameras, along with the image sensors they're based on, are commonly mentioned in the embedded vision coverage found here on the site. Some times, accurate depth sensing is fundamental to enabling an application. Other times, it makes an application richer than might otherwise be the case, as with gesture interfaces.

As I've written many times before, one key indication that embedded vision has gone "mainstream" is its embrace by the technology industry. IC, core, subsystem, software and services suppliers are making substantial development investments, and the resultant products are being purchased in volume by numerous systems companies. But don't misunderstand; ongoing robust academic activity is also key!

What do you do if you know what embedded vision technology, product and/or service you need, but don't know where to obtain it? The Embedded Vision Alliance has developed several resources to assist you in this endeavor. First off is Find a Supplier. After you fill out and submit the online information request form, it goes directly to the Alliance staff. Staff members will review your request and forward it to appropriate Embedded Vision Alliance member companies, who will then follow up directly with you.
