Smart imaging and computer vision for camera-enabled applications

From mobile devices to autonomous drones, and from surveillance equipment to automotive safety systems, intelligent image processing and computer vision are fundamental challenges for today’s system designers.

Demand for energy-efficient, compact, embedded imaging solutions is set to soar because low-cost, low-power computational photography and computer vision are essential to the success of the Internet of Things (IoT), where cameras and sensors reign supreme.

DSP image processing is enabling this revolution. Meeting the advanced processing requirements of new and emerging vision applications requires advanced, flexible and scalable imaging and computer vision processing IP that:

  • Provides a comprehensive solution for computational photography and computer vision applications, delivering a human-like visual perception
  • Consists of vision DSP cores, deep neural network toolkits, real-time software libraries, hardware accelerators, and algorithm developer ecosystems
  • Optimizes performance while reducing power consumption and die size, which enables efficient solutions for mass-market embedded devices
  • Provides a low-risk, cost-effective development route that minimizes time-to-market
