The Embedded Vision Alliance has launched a service for its members to help build products using computer vision. The Vision Accelerator Programme will be announced at the Alliance’s annual Embedded Vision Summit, to be held in Santa Clara, California from 1 to 3 May.
The service will give expert guidance to reduce development time and costs for companies creating products using computer vision.
‘The demand for the Vision Accelerator Programme came from product leaders who are building vision features into their products and who came to industry events like the Embedded Vision Summit. They wanted more targeted help to make specific product decisions,’ said Jeff Bier, founder of the Embedded Vision Alliance.
‘By offering guidance on critical topics like power/cost tradeoffs, 3D sensing, deep learning and edge vs. cloud processing we can help companies reduce risk and save considerable development time and expense,’ he added.
One of the first companies to make use of the Alliance's expertise was Camio, which makes a smart monitoring surveillance product using deep learning for real-time video search and alerts. ‘The Embedded Vision Alliance and its relationships have provided more value than any other single source of advice or guidance,’ said Carter Maslan, CEO of the firm.
The Vision Accelerator Programme includes confidential expert guidance, custom online educational workshops, access to exclusive Alliance events, connections with key potential suppliers and partners, and introductions to non-competitive companies facing similar challenges.
The Embedded Vision Alliance is an industry partnership of technology providers and end-product companies, which are enabling applications using computer vision.
