“Open Standards Unleash Hardware Acceleration for Embedded Vision,” a Presentation from the Khronos Group

Neil Trevett, President of the Khronos Group and Vice President of Developer Ecosystems at NVIDIA, presents the “Open Standards Unleash Hardware Acceleration for Embedded Vision” tutorial at the May 2023 Embedded Vision Summit.

Offloading visual processing to a hardware accelerator has many advantages for embedded vision systems. Decoupling hardware and software removes barriers to innovation and shortens time to market. Using hardware acceleration, embedded vision system manufacturers can integrate and deploy new components more easily, provide cross-generation reusability and facilitate field upgradability. Embedded system hardware acceleration is made possible by open standards for acceleration and interfacing, which reduce costs and lower the barriers to advanced techniques such as inferencing and vision acceleration.

In this presentation, Trevett explains how hardware accelerators can help offload vision processing and inferencing to speed development. He gives an overview of the Khronos Group family of open standards for programming and deploying accelerated inferencing and embedded vision and shares the latest progress from the Kamaros API Working Group, which is dedicated to the development of an open-standard camera system API.
