Deploying Visual SLAM in Low-power Devices

Wednesday, May 22, 11:20 AM - 11:50 PM
Summit Track: 
Enabling Technologies
Location: 
Exhibit Hall ET 1

Simultaneous localization and mapping (SLAM) technology has been evolving for quite some time, including visual SLAM, which relies primarily on image data. But implementing fast, accurate visual SLAM in embedded devices has been challenging due to high compute and precision requirements. Recent improvements in embedded processors enable deployment of visual SLAM in low-cost, low-power, mass-market systems, but implementing SLAM on such platforms can be  challenging. In this talk we explore the current state of visual SLAM algorithms and show how CEVA processors and software enable easy migration of SLAM algorithms from research to cost- and power-optimized production systems.
