Sidebar: EMBEDDED VISION ALLIANCE SEES SUCCESS
Embedded vision technology has the potential to enable a wide range of electronic products that are more intelligent and responsive than before, and thus more valuable to users. It can add helpful features to existing products. And it can provide significant new markets for hardware, software and semiconductor manufacturers. The Embedded Vision Alliance, a unified worldwide organization of technology developers and providers, will transform this potential into reality in a rich, rapid and efficient manner.
The alliance has developed a full-featured website, freely accessible to all and including (among other things) articles, videos, a daily news portal and a multi-subject discussion forum staffed by a diversity of technology experts. Registered website users can receive the alliance’s monthly e-mail newsletter; they also gain access to the Embedded Vision Academy, containing numerous tutorial presentations, technical papers and file downloads, intended to enable new players in the embedded vision application space to rapidly ramp up their expertise.
Other envisioned future aspects of the alliance’s charter may include:
• The incorporation, and commercialization, of technology breakthroughs originating in universities and research laboratories around the world,
• The codification of hardware, semiconductor and software standards that will accelerate new technology adoption by eliminating the confusion and inefficiency of numerous redundant implementation alternatives,
• Development of robust benchmarks to enable clear and comprehensive evaluation and selection of various embedded vision system building blocks, such as processors and software algorithms, and
• The proliferation of hardware and software reference designs, emulators and other development aids that will enable component suppliers, systems implementers and end customers to develop and select products that optimally meet unique application needs.
