The Embedded Vision Alliance (www.Embedded-Vision.com) has announced that ten companies joined the organization during the first half of 2015, bringing membership to over fifty. “The Alliance is rapidly increasing in importance and influence as companies take advantage of its resources to connect them with designers of computer vison applications and systems,” observed Jeff Bier, founder of the Alliance. “The mission of the Alliance is to spur the adoption of vision technology by the product development community and to bring that community together with our Members, which are providers of technology and services for systems and applications that use computer vision.”
Vivante provides native OpenCL vision IP cores, including the first IP to conform with OpenVX. Vivante IP can be used to accelerate algorithms for cognition of sensor data and run advanced 3D modeling and synthetic vision in security and automotive platforms.
The Alliance was founded in May 2011 as an industry partnership bringing together providers of the technology used to create practical applications of computer vision. Membership is open to any company that supplies hardware, software, or design services for computer vision systems and applications.
The Alliance organizes the annual Embedded Vision Summit (http://www.embeddedvisionsummit.com), the only event for software and hardware developers incorporating visual intelligence into products. Over 700 attended the May 2015 Summit. The 2016 Summit will take place in Santa Clara California from May 2 to 4.
