Re: March 18 - Day ONE: What Can You Do With Embedded Vision?

NO RATINGS
As I wrote just last night in an article I'm working on:

Electronic systems are also adept at detecting and accentuating minute image-to-image variations that the human visual system is unable to perceive, whether due to insufficient sensitivity or inadequate attention. As research at MIT and elsewhere has showcased, for example, it's possible to accurately measure a person's pulse rate simply by placing a camera in front of him or her and logging the minute facial color changes over time that are reflective of capillary blood flow. Similarly, embedded vision systems can precisely assess respiration rate by measuring the periodic rise and fall of the subject's chest.

This same embedded vision precision can find use in providing early-warning indication of neurological disorders such as ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, also known as Lou Gehrig's disease) and Parkinson's disease. Minute trembling, so slight that it may not yet even be perceptible to the subject, is less likely to escape the perceptive gaze of an embedded vision-enabled piece of medical gear. Slight gait aberrations are another possible neurological abnormality warning sign.

Lithium-ion battery prices will drop rapidly over the next 10 years, setting the stage for plug-in vehicles to reach 5%-10% of total automotive sales by the mid- to late-2020s, according to a new study.
Two researchers from Cornell University have won a $100,000 grant from NASA to continue work to develop an energy-harvesting robotic eel the space agency aims to use to explore oceans on one of the moons of Jupiter.
Is the factory smarter than it used to be? From recent buzzwords, you’d think we’ve entered a new dimension in industrial plants, where robots run all physical functions wirelessly and humans do little more than program ever more capable robotics. Some of that is actually true, but it’s been true for a while.
The big picture to this hands-on technology curriculum is to illustrate to students that the future of IoT and IoE (Internet of Everything) development can be created in today’s classroom.
A recent Design News-exclusive study proves that engineering professionals are at the very forefront of this push into the future and making direct financial, performance, and value impact on their organizations by being personally involved or final decision-makers on automation solution and component choices.
