Emerging applications

Wearables - futuristic smart glasses

There are several exciting new emerging markets that greatly benefit from low-power and low-cost computer vision and video coding technology.

Key videantis technologies for emerging applications:

Wearables

Smart glasses, smart watches and fitness products often include video capture and video analysis capabilities.

Internet of Things

This rapidly growing market of always-on, internet-connected devices often require camera-based sensing technologies. Examples are people detectors and counters, remote monitoring, or motion-sensing.

Consumer drones

These multi-rotor, autonomous or semi-autonomous small flying robots include image sensors either for video capture, or for obstacle detection and object tracking.

Consumer robotics

Home care products like robotic vacuum cleaners use computer vision for localization and mapping purposes.

Smart toys

Electronic toys include cameras to interact with their environment, localize, map, and navigate.

Key applications:

  • Object detection and tracking
  • Positioning, localization and mapping
  • Video compression for storage and transmission
