  • Using FPGAs to Accelerate Vision Applications

    Embedded vision is everywhere around us. It's in our phones, cars, medical devices, grocery stores, gaming systems, factories and more. At the rate vision is being added to embedded systems, chances are you will need to have some knowledge of vision within the next few years. There are an enormous amount of applications that can benefit from adding vision because it enables machines or products to know more about their physical surroundings and how to interact with them. Embedded vision can also enhance safety by detecting danger and preventing accidents, boosting efficiency by improving the throughput and quality of manufacturing, simplifying usability, and fueling innovation by enabling designers to do things previously thought impossible. This video will explain how FPGAs can be used to accelerate the incorporation and use of embedded vision applications in your machines.
