Embedded Vision Alliance hopes to foster vision in more products

A new consortium—the Embedded Vision Alliance (EVA)—hopes to enable the proliferation of embedded vision technology by providing design engineers with information, practical know-how, and industry standards.

A new consortium—the Embedded Vision Alliance (EVA)—hopes to enable the proliferation of embedded vision technology by providing design engineers with information, practical know-how, and industry standards. BDTI, Xilinx, and IMS Research initiated the EVA and are being joined by Analog Devices, Apical, Avnet Electronics Marketing, CEVA, CogniVue, Freescale, National Instruments, Nvidia, Texas Instruments, Tokyo Electron Device, The MathWorks, Ximea, and XMOS as founding members.

Citing the success of the Microsoft Xbox 360 and Kinect, the companies say they share the belief that incorporating vision capabilities into future products will bring dramatic benefits to users and provide high-growth opportunities in consumer, medical, automotive, entertainment, industrial, and retail markets.

As a first step, the Alliance launched a web site (www.embedded-vision.com) that will serve as a source of information to help design engineers incorporate vision capabilities in new systems. The EVA’s future plans include newsletters, educational webinars, industry reports, technology standards, and related activities.
