For those of you interested in learning more about embedded vision, I recommend the website of the Embedded Vision Alliance, www.embedded-vision.com, which contains extensive free educational materials.
For those who want to do some easy and fun hands-on experiments with embedded vision first-hand, try the BDTI OpenCV Executable Demo Package (for Windows), available at www.embedded-vision.com/platinum-members/bdti/embedded-vision-training/downloads/pages/introduction-computer-vision-using-op
And for those who want to start developing their own vision algorithms and applications using OpenCV, the BDTI Quick-Start OpenCV Kit (which runs under the VMware player on Windows, Mac, or Linux) makes it easy to get started: www.embedded-vision.com/platinum-members/bdti/embedded-vision-training/downloads/pages/OpenCVVMWareImage
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.
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
