Re: March 21 - Day FOUR: When to Use FPGAs to Accelerate Embedded Vision Applications

NO RATINGS

@tscheffe: Can you recommend any hardware/software for one to introduce/discuss/teach vision technology to elementary school children, or Boy Scouts pursuing a merit badge?

To "introduce" kids to computer vision, try the BDTI OpenCV Executable Demo Package, available for download from the Embedded Vision Alliance website.  bit-dot-ly/YIz9EH

Kids can play with the sliders and get immediate feedback on how it alters the algorithm.

It's not too different from instagram, letting kids play with parameters and view an immediate response.
They do not need to understand the details of what the parameters do in the algorithm, just the effect the parameters have on the result.

DIY candy, journeys to Mars, coding for road trips, and more. These STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) activity options will keep kids engaged this summer, from 10-minute activities to more advanced undertakings.
Nothing is more frustrating than developing a plan and then, in the heat of the battle, having to diverge from the plan when chaos happens.
In June, teams from across the US, and several countries worldwide, competed for awards in multiple categories at the 2016 Formula SAE Lincoln competition.
A 45-minute per day free course will take place July 11-15, and will walk engineers through a hands-on approach to debugging real-time embedded software.
Forget doping. Officials at this yearís Tour de France are looking for a very different form of cheating -- electric motors hidden inside the seat tubes of bicycles.
