The Era of Machines That See: Opportunities and Challenges in Embedded Vision
Jeff Bier, Founder, Embedded Vision Alliance/President, BDTi
Increasingly powerful, inexpensive programmable processors and image sensors are making it possible to incorporate computer vision capabilities into a very wide range of electronic products, such as retail point of sale kiosks and signs, personal medical devices, automotive safety systems and smart phones. This presentation provides an update on the development and deployment of embedded vision technology in industry. It will highlight some of the most interesting and most promising products incorporating vision. Important developments in practical enabling technologies, including processors, sensors, development platforms, and standards will also be discussed.
