Presentation will begin: Tuesday, July 19, 2022 - 12:30 PM EDT
Presented by: Martin Hunt, Coherent Logix
As the landscape of computer vision and inspection moves toward larger sensors, higher throughput, and shorter time to decision, the need for edge-based, low-latency processing is continuing to increase. The drive to push the inspection processing closer to the point of sensing is based on several factors, including the limited bandwidth to transmit raw sensor data to a remote processing location, the limited time to make product quality decisions, and system simplification. Hunt explores the design considerations for edge-based computational solutions that can meet the requirements for an on-camera solution. Specifically, he examines the following properties of the computational solution: sensor interface, memory architecture, computational resources, power, external interfaces, and control. A generic food-inspection use case will be used as the backdrop for the discussion.
