The primary goal of the Embedded Vision Alliance is to inspire and empower hardware and software product creators to use computer vision technology.
As product creators increasingly incorporate vision capabilities into hardware and software, it has become clear that there is a lack of readily available, practical information to guide them. While computer vision research has generated numerous textbooks and research papers, there is very little information available to guide system designers in designing practical computer vision solutions, including the selection of chips, cameras, algorithms, tools, and programming languages.
A key means of achieving the goal of inspiring and empowering hardware and software product creators to use computer vision technology is providing them with the practical know-how they need in order to effectively incorporate vision technology into their designs. The Alliance primarily accomplishes this objective via the content on its website, www.embedded-vision.com, along with its Embedded Vision Summit conferences.
