What is Embedded Vision?

“Embedded Vision” refers to the practical use of computer vision in machines that understand their environment through visual means.

Computer vision is the use of digital processing and intelligent algorithms to interpret meaning from images or video. Computer vision has mainly been a field of academic research over the past several decades. Today, however, a major transformation is underway.

Due to the emergence of very powerful, low-cost, and energy-efficient processors, it has become possible to incorporate practical computer vision capabilities into embedded systems, mobile devices, PCs, and the cloud. Over the next few years, there will be a rapid proliferation of embedded vision technology into many kinds of systems.
