Dear Colleague,Embedded Vision Summit

New videos from the recent Embedded Vision Summit focus on advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS), industry standards, and vision market and investment opportunities:

While you're on the Alliance website, don't forget to review all the other great new content there, including:

Finally, I'd like to tell you about an upcoming tutorial covering deep learning for vision using convolutional neural networks (CNNs) and the Caffe open-source framework. Taking place September 22, 2016 at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Cambridge, Massachusetts, this full-day event is organized by the Embedded Vision Alliance and BDTI. It will be presented by the primary Caffe developers from U.C. Berkeley's Vision and Learning Center, and will take participants from an introduction through the theory behind convolutional neural networks to their actual implementation, including multiple hands-on labs. A discounted registration fee of $600 is available only until July 8, so don't delay in signing up! For more tutorial details, and to register, please visit the event page.

Thanks as always for your support of the Embedded Vision Alliance, and for your interest in and contributions to embedded vision technologies, products and applications. I welcome your suggestions on what the Alliance can do to better service your needs.

"Augmented Reality for Industrial Productivity," a Presentation from DAQRIDAQRI
Wenyi Zhao, Ph.D., Director of the Vision and Sensor Group at DAQRI, delivers the presentation, "Augmented Reality for Industrial Productivity," at the March 2016 Embedded Vision Alliance Member Meeting. Zhao discusses how his firm's computer-vision-enabled augmented reality helmet is being used to dramatically improve productivity in industrial applications.

"Multiple Uses of Pipelined Video Pre-Processor Hardware in Vision Applications," a Presentation from Analog DevicesAnalog Devices
Rajesh Mahapatra, Engineering Manager at Analog Devices, presents the "Multiple Uses of Pipelined Video Pre-Processor Hardware in Vision Applications" tutorial at the May 2014 Embedded Vision Summit. Significant resemblance and overlap exist among the pre-processing blocks of different vision applications. For instance, image gradients and edges have proven beneficial for a variety of applications, such as face detection, traffic sign recognition, and fault detection. What if such pre-processing was available "for free" to vision developers, as a built-in hardware feature with a compute pipelining mechanism? In this presentation, Mahapatra illustrates how edge detection as a pre-processing tool can be used effectively to reduce the computational cost of vision applications, enabling low-power implementations. Analog Devices' examples include the detection of faces, traffic speed limit signs and irises, demonstrating a significant reduction in programmable DSP loading.
