Himax, emza and CEVA Partner to Create Ultra-Low Power, Always-On Vision Sensor for IoT

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA --- CEVA, Inc., together with Himax Imaging, Inc., and emza Visual Sense, announces that the companies have developed the industry’s first intelligent always-on visual sensor specifically designed to overcome the power and cost constraints of vision processing for IoT applications.

The WiseEye IoT sensor solution is purpose-built from the ground up with always-on, low power visual sensing in mind. By integrating Himax’ unique low power CMOS Imager Sensor, CEVA’s low power vision DSP technology and emza’s unique machine vision algorithms, the result is a powerful solution capable of detecting, tracking and recognizing its environment in an extremely efficient manner using a few milliwatts of power. This disruptive sensor allows low-cost IoT systems to employ advanced always-on intelligence which can, among other things, detect, track and identify objects, people and animals. This intelligence is applied locally on the device, passing only relevant information up to the network. This is fundamental to reducing the bandwidth and cost of deploying visual sensing networks. Target applications include virtual assistants, wearable devices, connected home sensors, residential security, protection of elderly, automotive, smart buildings systems and smart city infrastructure.
