Indie Semiconductor Creates Vision Processing Capabilities Unit

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email
Automotive semiconductors and software platforms developer indie Semiconductor established a business unit, VisionQ, focused exclusively on high-quality perception-enabled vision processing solutions. The unit will address what indie says is the majority of usage cases for advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS)-enabled vehicles.

Ramesh Singh is leading VisionQ for indie as the unit’s executive vice president and general manager. “Joining indie allows our team to accelerate the adoption of an open software perception stack and create scalable designs that are power and performance optimized,” Singh said.

In a press release, indie said the establishment of VisionQ creates new business opportunities with Tier 1 customers. As requirements for compute functions increase, indie said, the integration within the power profile and the form-factor becomes even more challenging.

“Integrating the AI algorithms and sensing functions into the numerous automotive cameras requires intelligent edge-compute vision processing in practically every product to solve the varying levels of computational processing,” the company said in the release. “Indie believes ADAS solutions that integrate the perception stack (by fusing advanced sensing algorithms across vision, radar, and lidar) will drive adoption of safety features being mandated globally.”

GLOSSARY
vision
The processes in which luminous energy incident on the eye is perceived and evaluated.
machine vision
Interpretation of an image of an object or scene through the use of optical noncontact sensing mechanisms for the purpose of obtaining information and/or controlling machines or processes.
artificial intelligence
The ability of a machine to perform certain complex functions normally associated with human intelligence, such as judgment, pattern recognition, understanding, learning, planning and problem solving.
lidar
An acronym of light detection and ranging, describing systems that use a light beam in place of conventional microwave beams for atmospheric monitoring, tracking and detection functions. Ladar, an acronym of laser detection and ranging, uses laser light for detection of speed, altitude, direction and range; it is often called laser radar.
