Get Information About Processor Options and Selection at the Embedded Vision Summit

Delivering the processing performance required by computer vision applications (typically tens of billions of operations per second) with cost and power consumption appropriate for mass-market products is a tough challenge. Just in the past few months, several new vision-specific co-processors, offered as licensable cores for incorporation into chips, have been announced, joining multiple previously introduced vision cores and ICs. In addition, many vision system developers use other types of parallel co-processors, such as GPUs, DSPs and FPGAs.

Upgrade Your Vision to Three Dimensions at the Embedded Vision Summit

Three-dimensional computer vision, once reserved for exotic applications like capturing the movements of actors for animated movies, became a mainstream technology with the introduction of the Microsoft Kinect in 2010. Since then, numerous 3D vision devices have emerged for cost-sensitive markets, such as the Dell Venue 8 7000 tablet (which uses Intel's RealSense depth camera and software) and Subaru's "EyeSight" driver assistance system.

Gain Understanding of Industry Standards for Vision at the Embedded Vision Summit

Industry standards are critical to enabling widespread adoption of any new technology. With respect to embedded vision, they include such topics as APIs (application programming interfaces) and algorithm libraries. For example, Khronos' new OpenVX standard enables cross-platform acceleration of computer vision algorithms.
