    U.S. presses for safer autonomous vehicle technology

    screen-shot-2016-09-23-at-12-14-04-pm

    Autonomous vehicles have been involved in some serious road accidents recently, most newsworthy: two widely reported driver deaths earlier this year in technology-packed, auto-piloted Teslas.

    No technology is perfect, but, inexorably, improvements and refinements will follow, and the benefits of self-driving vehicles, especially when it come to improved safety, will outweigh the risks – in theory.

      Cognex introduces first Image-based baggage identification solution

      Provides significantly higher read rates over laser-based systems

      June 5, 2016

      Air travel is growing 8% annually, placing a significant burden on current baggage processing systems that have remained relatively unchanged for 30 years. The Cognex ABH-ID Solution uses proven, airline industry-recognized technology that reads codes that are traditionally difficult to decode and offers high read rates even at critical junctions such as transfer lines, where tags frequently sustain damage from the airplane loading and unloading process.

        ARM’s Segars Sees Expanded Role for Machine Vision, Machine Learning

        June 5, 2016

        Simon Segars, chief executive of chip licensing powerhouse ARM Holdings, stopped by for a chat about last week’s acquisition of startup Apical, based near ARM’s headquarters in Cambridge, for $350 million. The company designs circuits for machine vision that can be embedded in chips developed by ARM’s customers. The company has 1 billion smartphones already shipped with its technology.

          Intel CEO announces acquisition of a machine vision start up

           

          One of the Internet of Things projects that Intel is gearing up for is self-driving cars. A key capability for such cars is being able to see surroundings and interpret them.

          Itseez, which  creates software and integration for everything from cars to security systems could become a key ingredient for Intel’s Internet of Things Group (IOTG) roadmap by giving customers the ability to create applications like autonomous driving, digital security and surveillance, and industrial inspection.

            Sensing depth using “structured” light

            June 5, 2016

            This 3-D printer is basically a demo of the DLP Structured Light Software Development Kit designed for high accuracy and high-speed 3-D printed objects. The system features the programmable DLP® LightCrafter4500™ evaluation module to precisely expose object layers and the ultra-low-power MSP430™ microcontroller to synchronize layer exposure with motor control for flexible 3-D builds.
