What is Embedded Vision?

“Embedded Vision” refers to the practical use of computer vision in machines that understand their environment through visual means.

Computer vision is the use of digital processing and intelligent algorithms to interpret meaning from images or video. Computer vision has mainly been a field of academic research over the past several decades. Today, however, a major transformation is underway.

Due to the emergence of very powerful, low-cost, and energy-efficient processors, it has become possible to incorporate practical computer vision capabilities into embedded systems, mobile devices, PCs, and the cloud. Over the next few years, there will be a rapid proliferation of embedded vision technology into many kinds of systems.

If your company is interested in creating products that incorporate visual intelligence, see the various technical, market and other resources available on the Embedded Vision Alliance website for assistance in adding vision capabilities to both new and existing products.

If your company is a supplier of vision chips, sensors, algorithms, software, tools, subsystems or services, join the Embedded Vision Alliance as a Technology Member. Technology Member benefits include increased visibility to end-product creators, and introductions to new customers and partners.

If your company is incorporating vision technologies into systems or applications, join the Embedded Vision Alliance as a Solutions Member. Solutions Member benefits include connections with new suppliers, partners and advisors; sharing knowledge with companies solving similar challenges; and introductions to start-ups with leading-edge technologies.

The Embedded Vision Alliance also offers the Vision Accelerator Program, enabling Solutions Members to bring innovative products to market faster. The Accelerator Program includes confidential workshops that bring together industry experts to advise on technology approaches for a specific product and to make introductions to relevant suppliers and partners.
