Xilinx at the Embedded Vision Alliance Summit – San Jose McEnery Convention Center, Room 230A, 230B, 230C

  • PresentationsChallenges and Opportunities in Accelerating OpenCV

Xilinx engineering director, video technology, Jose Alvarez, will explore the challenges and opportunities in creating embedded vision applications that require real-time performance which is achieved through a combination of software and hardware-based libraries. Vision-Based Automotive Driver Assistance Systems: Challenges and Approaches Xilinx senior system architect, automotive solutions, Paul Zoratti, will describe the objectives and results of a project to realize a multi-camera, multi-feature driver assistance system processor on an all programmable SoC architecture.

  • Demonstrations

Vivado Design Suite – showcasing a tightly integrated development tool flow using the OpenCV library, Vivado HLS, and IPI showing how to rapidly convert C-level algorithms into RTL to validate in hardware, better manage complex designs with hierarchical video system design capture, and accelerate development by integrating open standards libraries like OpenCV.

Advanced Driver Assistance System – Xilinx Zynq-7000 All Programmable SoC running a 360-degree surround vision and rear view camera system showcasing applications such as lane departure warning and pedestrian detection.

All Programmable Solutions Displayed Throughout DESIGN West 2013As part of the ARM Connected Community, Xilinx is leveraging the strength of the ARM ecosystem to provide a complete solution, from design to manufacture and end use – visit the ARM booth (#1708) and participate in the ARM passport program.
