CEVA Enriches its Computer Vision Software Library with OpenVX compatibility

CEVA announced that it has enriched its CEVA-CV computer vision real-time library to include more than 750 functions. New functions added in the latest CEVA-CV release include feature detection kernels and object recognition algorithms such as Harris Corner, Hough Transform, Integral Sum, Fast, LBP, SURF, HOG, SVM, and ORB detection and matching. CEVA-CV now also includes kernels required by The Khronos Group's OpenVX 1.0 specification, which is set to become the key standard for cross-platform acceleration of computer vision applications and libraries.

Chipmakers helping to give computers a visual cortex

Samsung, Qualcomm, ARM, Broadcom, and a bunch of other technology companies want your computer to see. To that end, they banded together at the Khronos Group to try to standardize some elements of machine vision technology. It's the kind of thing that could make it easier to write an augmented reality app for a mobile phone or sign-recognition software for an autonomous car, for example, because difficult low-level technology would be taken care of.

Khronos Releases OpenVX 1.0 Specification for Computer Vision Acceleration

The Khronos Group today announced the ratification and public release of the OpenVX 1.0 provisional specification, an open, royalty-free standard for cross platform acceleration of computer vision applications and libraries. OpenVX enables performance and power optimized computer vision algorithms for use cases such as face, body and gesture tracking, smart video surveillance, automatic driver assistance systems, object and scene reconstruction, augmented reality, visual inspection, robotics and more. The provisional release of the specification enables developers and implementers to provide feedback before specification finalization, which is expected within six months. The OpenVX 1.0 Provisional Specification Press Release is available on the Khronos Group website and the official feedback thread is available on the Khronos forums.
