Embedded Vision - the new hype? What is new, what is already known? Principally, embedded vision is well-known. Optimized hardware and specific application software are integral parts of the final product, regardless of whether it is a small device or a huge machine.
But it is very important to accentuate embedded vision in the context of machine vision. More and more computing power and intelligent interfaces (e.g. real-time Ethernet-based fieldbuses) are becoming part of a small computer or smart camera.
