The term “embedded vision” refers to the use of computer vision technology in embedded systems. Stated another way, “embedded vision” refers to embedded systems that extract meaning from visual inputs.

Similar to the way that wireless communication has become pervasive over the past 10 years, embedded vision technology is poised to be widely deployed in the next 10 years. Vision algorithms were originally only capable of being implemented on costly, bulky, power-hungry computer systems, and as a result computer vision has mainly been confined to a few application areas, such as...
