|LETTER FROM THE EDITOR|
With less than a month to go until the September 19 Embedded Vision Summit in Boston, Massachusetts, the technical program is shaping up very nicely. The Summit will feature over a dozen technical presentations focused on providing practical know-how for engineers interested in incorporating vision capabilities into their products. Presentations will cover embedded vision applications, algorithms, processors, image sensors, and tools and design techniques. Check out the event page on the Alliance website for more details, and register right away, as space is limited and seats are filling up!
Speaking of registrations, one week prior to the Summit, Design News Magazine will deliver a free five-session tutorial series called "Fundamentals of Embedded Computer Vision: Creating Machines That See", September 10-14 at 2PM ET (11AM PT) each day. The content presenters will be Jeff Bier, Embedded Vision Alliance founder, and Eric Gregori, BDTI senior software engineer. Bier and Gregori will begin with an introductory overview, followed by more in-depth details on image sensors, processors, algorithms, tools, and the OpenCV software library. See the first news item listing in this newsletter for more information, including registration links.
Also one week ahead of the Summit, on September 12 and 13 to be exact, Alliance Platinum member IMS Research will present the European edition of the Touch-Gesture-Motion Conference, in London. Vision-based gesture- and motion-related technologies will be particularly showcased on day 2 of the event. For example, Stephane Gervais-Ducouret, sensor product line director at Alliance member Freescale, will deliver the conference keynote that morning. The keynote will be followed by a technical session that includes presentations from Alliance members eyeSight and PointGrab. And the Alliance will be officially represented by Apical's founder and CEO, Michael Tusch. Again, see the news section of this newsletter for a writeup containing additional details, including detailed agenda and registration page links.
Last but not least, there's a substantial amount of new video content recently published on the website that's sourced from last month's Member Summit: the market and technology trends presentations, for example, along with various product demonstrations. Also, make sure you check out my interview with IMS Research's senior analyst and machine vision expert, John Morse, who will be delivering the market trends presentation at the upcoming December Member Summit. Thank you as always for your support of the Alliance, and for your interest in and contributions to embedded vision technologies, products and applications. I welcome your feedback at any time on how we can do a better job of addressing your needs.
