Multi-Task Network Pruning and Embedded Optimization for Real-time Deployment in ADAS


Abstract: "Camera-based Deep Learning algorithms are increasingly needed for perception in Automated Driving systems. However, constraints from the automotive industry challenge the deployment of CNNs by imposing embedded systems with limited computational resources. In this paper, we propose an approach to embed a multi- task CNN network under such conditions on a commercial prototy... » read more

MIPI Standards Gaining Traction In New Markets


An explosion of low-cost, high-performance image sensors for a growing number of applications is propelling the MIPI interface into a variety of new markets, where standardized signal protocols and characteristics are becoming essential. For years, MIPI has been almost synonymous with mobile phones. But as higher-resolution image sensors increasingly are deployed in automotive, AI, IoT, and ... » read more

Innovations In Sensor Technology


Sensors are the “eyes” and “ears” of processors, co-processors, and computing modules. They come in all shapes, forms, and functions, and they are being deployed in a rapidly growing number of applications — from edge computing and IoT, to smart cities, smart manufacturing, hospitals, industrial, machine learning, and automotive. Each of these use cases relies on chips to capture d... » read more

The Future Of Smart Cameras Is 64-Bit Processing


The future of smart camera technology brings with it profound transformations in the way we interact with each other and the world around us. From smart cities that are safer and more efficient to rainforests that are monitored for illegal logging, the increasing need for advanced vision technology is growing. Diverse and complex use cases leveraging artificial intelligence (AI) and machine lea... » read more

Big Changes Ahead For Inside Auto Cabins


The space we occupy inside our vehicles is poised to change from mere enclosure to participant in the driving experience. Whether for safety or for comfort, a wide range of sensors are likely to appear that will monitor the “contents” of the vehicle. The overall approach is referred to as an in-cabin monitoring system (ICMS), but the specific applications vary widely. “In-cabin sensing... » read more

MIPI On Wheels: Enabling ADAS Applications


Formed in 2003, the Mobile Industry Processor Interface (MIPI) Alliance brought together leading system and chip companies to provide standards for the essential video interface technologies for cameras and displays in phones. Over the years, the alliance has expanded its scope to publish specifications covering physical layer, multimedia, chip-to-chip and inter-processor communications (IPC), ... » read more

Competing Auto Sensor Fusion Approaches


As today’s internal-combustion engines are replaced by electric/electronic vehicles, mechanical-system sensors will be supplanted by numerous electronic sensors both for efficient operation and for achieving various levels of autonomy. Some of these new sensors will operate alone, but many prominent ones will need their outputs combined — or “fused” — with the outputs of other sensor... » read more

Sensor Fusion Everywhere


How do you distinguish between background noise and the sound of an intruder breaking glass? David Jones, head of marketing and business development for intuitive sensing solutions at Infineon, looks at what types of sensors are being developed, what happens when different sensors are combined, what those sensors are being used for today, and what they will be used for in the future. » read more

Cross Spectrum Video Processing


While immunization vaccines are rolling out at an impressive pace, and as society slowly reopens, our best defense against the Coronavirus continues to be early detection and rapid response (such as self-isolation). An early symptom of having the virus is an increased body temperature, which can be easily measured using contactless methods such as thermal sensors or cameras sensitive to IR r... » read more

Meeting Fundamental Interface Requirements For Camera And Display With Integrated MIPI IP


Cameras and displays are used in cars, industrial and medical devices, smartphones and other mobile devices, and machine vision applications. Over the years, the required data for high resolution videos and images have increased, forcing camera and display SoCs to process more complex visual data. The MIPI Alliance offers a portfolio of camera and display interfaces that deliver differentiation... » read more
