Location: LSI, 1320 Ridder Park Drive, San Jose, CA 95131.



Increasingly powerful, inexpensive programmable processors and image sensors are making it possible to incorporate vision capabilities into a very wide range of electronic products, such as retail point of sale kiosks and signs, personal medical devices, automotive safety systems and smart phones. In this presentation, we'll provide an update on the development and deployment of embedded vision technology in industry. We’ll highlight some of the newest, most interesting and most promising products incorporating vision capabilities. And we’ll report on important developments in practical enabling technologies, including processors, sensors, development platforms and standards. Finally, we’ll share an early version of a map of the embedded vision industry, under development by the Embedded Vision Alliance.



Jeff Bier, Founder of the Embedded Vision Alliance and President of BDTI. The Alliance is an industry partnership formed to enable the market for embedded vision technology by inspiring and empowering design engineers to create more capable and responsive products through the integration of vision capabilities. Berkeley Design Technology, Inc. (BDTI) is a trusted resource for independent analysis and specialized engineering services in the realm of embedded digital signal processing technology.


In addition, Jeff will give an talk at the IEEE Embedded Vision Workshop (June 24), entitled "Development and Deployment of Embedded Vision in Industry".
