May 2014 Embedded Vision Summit West Workshops

Embedded Vision Workshops

In-Depth Training on Design and Implementation

On Wednesday, May 28, 2014, Embedded Vision Alliance member companies presented two separate workshops exploring hardware and software for various embedded vision implementations. These workshops are an excellent starting point for vision application developers interested in exploring a wide range of embedded vision applications.

These workshops provided in-depth tutorials on the basics of designing systems and applications that incorporate computer vision techniques. Taught by embedded vision experts from Alliance member companies, these workshops explored a variety of topics, ranging from embedded vision algorithms to software implementation and hardware acceleration.

The May 2014 Embedded Vision Summit West workshops are now concluded.

A BDTI Technical Training Workshop:
Implementing Embedded Vision and Computer Vision: An Introduction
Covering Processors, Sensors, Algorithms, and Development with OpenCV and OpenCL

From 9:00AM-3:00PM (including complimentary lunch), Embedded Vision Alliance Founding Member BDTI presented a day-long technical training workshop that provides an efficient launching pad for engineers and others seeking to incorporate vision into their next generation products and applications. Attendees got a practical introduction to key hardware and software topics including processors, sensors, tools and development techniques currently used for vision-based application and system design.
