Avnet Demonstration of Sensor Fusion Acceleration Using the Xilinx reVISION Stack

Mario Bergeron, Technical Marketing Engineer at Avnet, demonstrates the company's latest embedded vision technologies and products at the May 2017 Embedded Vision Summit. Specifically, Bergeron explains how the Xilinx reVISION stack was used to target a sensor fusion algorithm on the Avnet PicoZed Embedded Vision Kit. Written entirely in C/C++, the image fusion algorithm was quickly prototyped in software with OpenCV on the Zynq-7030’s ARM Cortex A9 processors. Three compute-intensive functions were then accelerated to hardware with HLS and SDSoC, achieving real-time execution.
