Embedded Vision Alliance/Summit 2016 Announces Keynote Speakers Headlining Event on Bringing Visual Intelligence to Products

Embedded Vision Alliance/Summit revealed that computer vision innovators from NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory and the Google Brain Project will be the keynote speakers talking about autonomous vehicles and deep learning, two of the hottest topics in visual intelligence.

The Embedded Vision Alliance today revealed the first keynote speakers and industry experts on the program at the Embedded Vision Summit, scheduled May 2-4 in Santa Clara, California. Larry Matthies, a NASA senior research scientist who participated in the development of vision systems for the Mars Exploration Rover and Mars Pathfinder missions, will talk about how advances in vision technology are enabling autonomous land, sea and air vehicles. Jeff Dean, Google Senior Fellow and leader of the Google Brain Project, will explain how deep learning is dramatically changing how computer vision is implemented in products.

"Computer vision has escaped the research halls and is marching into the mainstream," says Jeff Bier, founder and CEO, Embedded Vision Alliance. "The Embedded Vision Summit brings together more than 1000 industry innovators, top technologists, business executives, and smart engineers - game changers from around the world who are designing ‘machines that see.'"
The Embedded Vision Summit, held at the Santa Clara Convention Center, is the only event focused exclusively on deployable computer vision for innovators seeking to incorporate visual intelligence into products. The 2016 Summit, a three-day educational event, presents the latest practical techniques for vision-based product development, as well as examining the commercial landscape, latest trends and business opportunities in this fast-emerging market. It will inspire participants to use embedded vision technology in new ways and to empower them with the know-how they need to integrate vision capabilities into products. The Vision Technology Showcase features dozens of demos, exhibits and presentations on the enabling technologies from top computer vision suppliers.
Participants will learn the business implications of computer vision and how to bring visual intelligence into cloud applications, embedded systems, mobile apps, and wearables. The Summit will present vision applications across a wide range of industries such as automotive, aerospace and defense, agriculture, consumer, entertainment, healthcare, industrial manufacturing, medical, mobile, retail, robotics and security.

US Digital - E4T Miniature Optical Kit Encoder

US Digital - E4T Miniature Optical Kit Encoder

US Digital is pleased to announce the launch of the E4T, their latest series of miniature high performance optical encoders. The E4T series delivers a marked performance increase over similar encoder models and designed to be an enhanced replacement for the E4P encoder series. The E4T utilizes state of the art transmissive optical sensing technology, and incorporates US Digital's own proprietary OptoASIC. Assembly of the E4T is simple and efficient and retains the previous E4P's form factor. Key features of the new E4T include: • Mechanically and Electrically Interchangeable with E4P • Improved Quadrature Signal Strength • 100 kHz Frequency Response • Transmissive Optical Design • Collet Style Push on Optical Disk Design (Patent Pending) • Simple & Efficient Assembly Process As with all of our products the E4T is designed and manufactured in their Vancouver, Washington USA facility and is available for purchase as of December 2014.
