@moulay: I am working in machine vision, mainly developing PC based systems. In our team we have already worked with some embedded systems like smart cameras (CPU and DSP based). We currently use GPGPU for high performance processing and I am wondering if there are GPU embedded technologies available in the market? (The only one I came across was from GE Intelligent Platforms that targets the defense sector) Great question. Yes, there are more and more embedded processors that incorporate general-purpose GPU capabilities (graphics processing units that can be programmed to perform other parallel processing tasks). For example, Freescale's i.MX6 series of ARM-based processors include a GPU that supports OpenCL programming. And AMD's "APU" processors combine an x86 CPU plus GPU with OpenCL support. Here's an AMD white paper describing a smart camera based on these processors: http://www.amd.com/us/Documents/AMDXIMEACaseStudy.pdf
The company says it anticipates high-definition video for home security and other uses will be the next mature technology integrated into the IoT domain, hence the introduction of its MatrixCam devkit.
Siemens and Georgia Institute of Technology are partnering to address limitations in the current additive manufacturing design-to-production chain in an applied research project as part of the federally backed America Makes program.
Most of the new 3D printers and 3D printing technologies in this crop are breaking some boundaries, whether it's build volume-per-dollar ratios, multimaterials printing techniques, or new materials types.
