One customer’s experience
A major semiconductor company needed to demonstrate the use of its technology for embedded vision applications. BDTI developed a prototype a computer-vision-based pedestrian detection and road sign application for automotive customers, using a combination of an FPGA and a processor. The application provided clear proof that the technology provides a superior solution and sparked strong customer interest.
Computer Vision—the processing and extraction of meaning from image and video data—is a key emerging technology for a wide range of applications, including security, medical, industrial, military/aerospace, and automotive. It even finds its way into consumer products in the form of gesture control for video gaming, TVs, and other devices.
In a field that has a relatively short history, BDTI has deep experience in the use of computer vision technology. Examples of successful customer projects include:
- Design of a vision-based detection and tracking system
- Design and implementation of a neural network pedestrian detection application for an embedded processor
- Implementation and optimization of 3D vision algorithms for Google's Project Tango
- Design and implementation of a unique motion analysis algorithm for efficient execution on a low-power processor
If you are a product manufacturer or system designer, BDTI can create or select the right algorithm, implement the algorithm on your processor, and optimize it to deliver the right functionality, optimum performance, and minimal power consumption.
If you are an algorithm developer, BDTI can deliver highly optimized implementations for any number of processing platforms. Our knowledge and experience with a wide range of processing architectures enable us to deliver highly compact, efficient code that will highlight your technology and give your customers a springboard for their products.
If you are a processor vendor, BDTI can help you deliver computer vision technology to your customers. Through BDTI’s consulting services in product development, your company can strengthen your offerings or develop capabilities to draw new customers. This can take the form of demo systems or reference designs. We can also work directly with your customers to bring end-products to market. Additionally, BDTI can develop solid, credible evidence of your company’s technology through independent competitive analysis.
