Xilinx autonomous vehicle
Guest blog from Giles Peckham Autonomous vehicles are a hot topic at the moment. However, the term can describe a wide range of potential autonomous capabilities. Therefore, the Society of Automotive Engineers has defined five levels of automated driving: Level 0 – The driver has control, with the vehicle issuing warnings. Level 1 – The vehicle and the driver have shared control, for instance adaptive cruise control. Level 2 – The vehicle has full control but the driver must still monitor the vehicle and take control if necessary. Level 3Read More
To correctly perceive and safely interact with their environment, many embedded-vision systems such as vision-guided robots, autonomous cars and drones, rely either upon multiple image sensors of the same type or image sensors combined with a different sensing technology. These additional sensors enable extraction of information which cannot be obtained if just a single image sensor is used, for example determining the distance to an object. Combining and processing the data provided by multiple sensors is known as sensor fusion. When sensors of the same type are used, for exampleRead More

Machine Learning for Embedded Vision

Edge based embedded vision systems often use machine learning techniques to embed intelligence within the solution. These solutions need to be not only capable of high performance but also power efficient, flexible and deterministic due to their use cases. To address these challenges, embedded vision developers utilise the Xilinx® All Programmable Zynq® SoC or Zynq® UltraScale+™ MPSoC devices and develop applications using the reVISION™ acceleration stack and SDSoC™ system optimising compiler. These devices provide programmable logic coupled with high performance ARM® A53 or A9 processors, forming a tightly-integrated heterogeneous processingRead More

Embedded system developers are increasingly challenged to present solutions which offer superior performance, connectivity and security, while still providing the most power efficient solution. To address these challenges developers are leveraging the capabilities provided by Xilinx® All Programmable devices. These devices are available as Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGA) which are programmable logic based or heterogeneous System on Chips (SoC) which combine high performance ARM® cores with programmable logic. Programmable logic has come a long way since the invention of the first FPGA in 1984 by Xilinx. The first device,Read More
