What is exciting is the growth of both the processing capacity and the sensor resolutions. Given that vision requires huge processing resources and the proliferation of quad / 8 core processors there is enough horsepower availible to time wise effectively process live images. Couple that with the advent of cheap, high resolution cameras you have a nexus of opportunity to provide "real time" live vision processing for the masses. Very exciting times indeed.

The application of vision is indeed becoming more prevalent in embedded systems. It is fascinating to see how vision is being applied to problems in the industrial and consumer spaces that have traditionally been handled by other, more cumbersome solutions. The replacement of gaming controllers with stereo vision based solution is one example among many. An example of one approach to adding custom embedded vision to a product is outlined in the following TI white paper: Tom

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
