In the “Lab to Market” Tech Talk Series, organized by the A*STAR Postdoc and Early Career Scientists Society (A*PECSS), Avnet Asia, Xilinx and A*STAR discussed the future of driverless cars and other embedded vision applications. The convergence of advanced technologies including embedded vision, sensors, connectivity and deep learning is essential to make driverless vehicles safe and efficient.
Supporting Singapore’s agenda to introduce driverless vehicles from 2022, Avnet showcased its latest autonomous guided vehicle (AGV) model utilizing the MicroZed Embedded Vision Kit. From enhancing security by providing real-time and more accurate analytics, to automating tray return at food centers, the AGV is ideal for helping makers accelerate product development.
“Avnet has been playing an active role in supporting and nurturing start-ups in Singapore and across Asia, to guide their ideas to production. The adoption of embedded vision will transform IoT applications and unlock innovations across key industries such as automotive. Avnet’s hardware and software solutions for Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS) equips automotive engineers with essential information to further innovate and realize the potential of IoT technologies,” said Andy Wong, senior vice president, global design solutions, Avnet Asia. ”
For years, Xilinx and Avnet have been helping customers and start-ups accelerate the development of embedded vision applications. It enables machines to respond through algorithms, digital processing and visual intelligence, including facial and object recognition, and is being increasingly adopted for a variety of applications from smartphone cameras to driverless vehicles.
According to them, embedded vision is the next engineering frontier, key market opportunities in the region span automotive & transportation, security, industrial, healthcare, retail and consumer technology. Read more…
