Xilinx launched the Embedded Vision Developer Zone which aggregates useful resources to speed the development of next-generation embedded vision systems employing sensor fusion, advanced computer vision algorithms, and real-time object detection and analytics capabilities based on machine learning techniques. Example applications include smart surveillance cameras and autonomous vehicles.
Embedded Vision Developer Zone allows software, hardware, and system developers to accelerate their productivity and build All Programmable, differentiated Embedded Vision applications.
The new tool consists of optimized libraries for software development, vision IP for hardware developers, projects, and tutorials from Xilinx, Alliance Program Members, and community developers.
All development resources are compatible with Xilinx FPGAs and All Programmable SoCs, including Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoCs combining four ARM Cortex-A53 APUs, two ARM Cortex-R5 Real time Processors, an ARM Mali-400 MP2 GPU, an HEVC Video Codec supporting 4Kp60 resolution, programmable logic, and programmable interfaces.
“Product developers are embracing embedded vision at an accelerating pace. From smart surveillance cameras to autonomous vehicles, just about everything, everywhere needs to ‘see’ something,” said Jeff Bier, founder of the Embedded Vision Alliance. “Squeezing vision into tight cost and power budgets presents unique challenges to embedded vision developers. Providing them with a dedicated place to find a wide range of resources relevant to their applications is an important step in enabling more developers to meet these challenges.”
