The Embedded Vision Summit West 2014 provides a unique opportunity for engineers to learn about the hottest technology in the electronics industry—embedded computer vision—which enables “machines that see and understand.” Summit West on May 29th will be held in the Santa Clara Convention center. Seats filled up very quickly last year, and so it is suggested that anyone who is interested in attending, please register today.

Israel 5th Machine Vision Conference takes place this Tuesday, April 1stThe image processing, video and computer vision communities in Israel are world class leaders in the field, with large and dynamic presence in both industry and academia. The IMVC conference is a unique opportunity for companies from diverse industrial fields to meet with research groups of academic institutions heading machine vision research in Israel. The conference serve as a venue for academic researchers, algorithm experts and engineers, product managers, and system managers from companies in various segments of the industry (medical, military, security, etc.) to gain exposure, exchange ideas and foster collaboration. Material regarding the newly formed Israel Chapter will be handed at the conference. The Israel Chapter is a great opportunity to meet and share information regarding Khronos APIs: OpenGL, OpenCL, OpenVX, OpenMax, etc.

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.

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.

A bunch of companies are working with the Khronos Group to standardize some nuts and bolts of machine vision. 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. The new standard is of course OpenVX, which is geared to make it easier for software to tap into some of those machine-vision functions.

CogniVue, an innovator in embedded vision and strong supporter of OpenCL and OpenVX standards, recently announced that they had been selected as one of the Canadian Innovation Exchange (CIX) Top-20 companies for their work on semiconductor processor technology IP and software that enables high-performance, low-power embedded vision applications for automotive, consumer, mobile and security markets.

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.

DRC unlocks the visual processing algorithm that happens between the retina and brain, creating a disruptive innovation that revolutionizes the viewing experience on any screen. The Vivante optimized solution intelligently enhances and transforms media content to match real world colors, HDR, and details, while delivering notable power and bandwidth savings. Trusight Inc recently partnered with Imagination Technologies to deliver an optimized OpenCL implementation of Trusight’s patented multi-platform video and CGI processing technology, which can deliver notable power and bandwidth savings for Imagination’s PowerVR GPU technology.

The Linley Tech Mobile Conference will be held on April 16 & 17 in San Jose, California. A two-day, single-track conference feature technical presentations addressing system design for mobile devices such as tablet computers, smartphones, navigation devices, media players, handheld games, and e-book readers. Neil Trevett, President of the Khronos Group will discuss how OpenCL and OpenGL standards are changing the way that mobile systems are designed today. He will also address new initiatives in sensor processing and vision processing that will bring new capabilities to mobile devices.

CMSoft presents a study on how to use OpenCL to accelerate the extraction of color Haar-like wavelet features from color images. This process involves OpenCL acceleration of the computation of the image integral, generation of regions of sliding window in the target picture and preparing data structures to receive all features.
