This is a reprint of a Texas Instruments-published white paper, which is also available here (2.1 MB PDF).


When a driver starts a car, he doesn’t think about starting an intelligent analytics system; sometimes, that’s precisely what he’s doing. In the future, we will encounter intelligent systems more often as embedded analytics is added to applications such as automotive vision, security and surveillance systems, industrial and factory automation, and a host of other consumer applications.

Texas Instruments Incorporated (TI) has been innovating in embedded analytics for more than 20 years, blending real-world sensor driving technologies like video and audio with embedded processors and analytics algorithms. TI provides software libraries and development tools to make these intelligent applications fast and easy to develop.

Now, high-performance, programmable and low-power digital signal processors (DSPs) are providing the foundation for a new wave of embedded analytics systems capable of gathering data on their own, processing it in real time, reaching conclusions and taking actions.


This white paper explains how TI, together with members of the TI Design Network, are today empowering leading-edge embedded analytics systems in some of the most prominent application areas, including automotive, surveillance, access control and industrial inspection systems, as well as many emerging applications, including digital signage, gaming and robotics.

What is “embedded analytics”?

Embedded analytics technology unites embedded systems and the human senses to enable systems to analyze information and make intelligent decisions. Although embedded analytics technology appeals to a wide range of industries, there is a set of technical characteristics that most embedded analytics applications share. They are:

  • Diverse...
