Embedded Vision Alliance Adds Eight New Members

Membership exceeds forty companies in recognition of growth driver for electronics industry

WALNUT CREEK, Calif., August 12, 2014 -- The Embedded Vision Alliance (www.Embedded-Vision.com) has announced that eight companies have joined its ranks in the past two months, bringing membership to an historic high. “The overwhelming success of the recent Embedded Vision Summit 2014 is undoubtedly a contributing factor in the growth of the organization,” observed Jeff Bier, founder of the Alliance, “which itself is recognition of the growing importance of vision as a major driver of growth in the electronics industry.”

“Thanks to improvements in sensors, processors, algorithms, and tools, visual intelligence is being incorporated into a rapidly growing range of products. Embedded vision allows machines to see and understand the world around them, enabling them to be more responsive, safer and more capable,” said Bier. “The mission of the Alliance is to spur the adoption of vision technology by the engineering community and to connect that community with our Members, which are providers of technology and services for systems and applications that use computer vision.”

In welcoming the eight companies profiled below, Bier said, “We welcome our newest Members and look forward to collaborating with them to empower product creators to use embedded vision technology.”
