Since 2015, the Embedded Vision Alliance has surveyed computer vision developers regarding the products they are working on and the hardware and software tools they are using in their projects.

This white paper provides selected results from our most recent survey, conducted in November 2018. We received responses from 692 computer vision developers across a wide range of industries, organizations, geographical locations and job types. We have focused our analysis on the 345 respondents whose organizations are developing end products for consumers, businesses or governments (vs. organizations that are providing services, or providing components, subsystems or software for incorporation into new products).

We hope these selected results provide insight into the popular hardware and software platforms being used today for vision-enabled end products.

Full survey results are available for Embedded Vision Alliance member companies. Please see here for more information on joining the Alliance.


The Embedded Vision Alliance is a global partnership that brings together technology providers with end product and systems developers who are enabling innovative, practical applications of computer vision and visual AI. Imagination Technologies and Synopsys, the co-authors of this article, are members of the Embedded Vision Alliance. The Embedded Vision Alliance's mission is to provide product creators with practical education, information and insights to help them incorporate vision capabilities into new and existing products. To execute this mission, the Embedded Vision Alliance maintains a website providing tutorial articles, videos, code downloads and a discussion forum staffed by technology experts. Registered website users can also receive the Embedded Vision Alliance’s twice-monthly email newsletter, Embedded Vision Insights, among other benefits.

The Embedded Vision Alliance’s annual conference and trade show, the Embedded Vision Summit, is coming up May 20-23, 2019 in Santa Clara, California. Intended for product creators interested in incorporating visual intelligence into electronic systems and software, the Embedded Vision Summit provides how-to presentations, inspiring keynote talks, demonstrations, and opportunities to interact with technical experts from Embedded Vision Alliance member companies. The Embedded Vision Summit is intended to inspire attendees' imaginations about the potential applications for practical computer vision technology through exciting presentations and demonstrations, to offer practical...
