AutoSens show report: 5 things we learned at this great conference
This was the first AutoSens show ever, but it sure didn’t show. The organizer Robert Stead from Sense Media is a veteran at running technical conferences, and combining Rob’s experience and network with the very hot field of sensing and processing for autonomous cars was sure to result in a great show.
With more than 330 attendees and over 20 exhibitors, all focusing on automotive sensing and processing, we ran into many of our business contacts. We presented a talk titled “Visual processing crucial to ADAS: applications, architectures and algorithms”.
Here’s five things we learned from the show:
New articles on VR and drones
Drones and virtual or augmented reality are two emerging technologies with tremendous potential. Together with other members of the Embedded Vision Alliance, we co-authored two articles on these exciting two applications last month, focusing on how computer vision technology adds functionality, improves the user experience and reduces system cost.

Driverless cars in the movies
Movies are often great predictors of the future. At least since the 1960s, there have been several movies that featured autonomous vehicles. At first these cars were more human than machine. Both Herbie and KITT had personalities and minds of their own. Since the 1990s, this aspect went away and the cars became purely machines that just take you places. This article gives an overview of the very different driverless cars that feature in the movies.
If there’s one thing that the industry agrees on it is that these cars need lots of sensors, and that at the heart of these machines there is an electronic device that processes the huge amounts of captured sensor data into actionable information to control speed and direction.
