Pierre Cambou, Principal Analyst at Yole Développement, presents the “Transformation from Imaging to Sensing: Driving a Market Revolution” tutorial at the May 2021 Embedded Vision Summit.
Over the past 20 years, digital imaging has grown to become a huge industry with a focus on producing images for human consumption. More recently, the emphasis has begun shifting to using images as sensory inputs to machines. In this talk, Cambou explores how this shift is transforming the imaging industry.
Cambou examines market dynamics in the mobile, consumer, computing, automotive, medical, security, industrial, and aerospace and defense segments. He explains how image sensor sales are being affected by this shift, using the example of 3D face recognition in mobile. He also discusses how image-related computing is being impacted. For example, while in the past most devices had to incorporate some kind of ISP, now the VPU is becoming the new imperative.
