Ultra-Wide Stereo Vision — Not a Question of Perspective 2 months ago

Context: AI-enabled cameras are becoming an increasingly important tool for the factory of the future. While the general aim of lean manufacturing is pretty clear (zero waste), strategies to achieve this are manifold. However, most of them start with a digital representation of the production processes, the products or even the whole factory. Some even call this a digital twin. Digital information needed for that concept may be produced by the industrial machines and appliances …

Visual SLAM with HemiStereo® NX 2 months ago

Navigating through unknown surroundings comes relatively easy for most humans. However, it is a highly complex task for autonomous mobile robots and automated guided vehicles (AGV). A sensor needs to simultaneously construct a map of its surroundings and find its location within this map. While this task presents a chicken-and-egg problem (a map is needed for the localization and a location is needed for the mapping), the most reliable solution is called Simultaneous Localization and …

Speeding up object detection tasks using INT8 precision on the Jetson Xavier NX 9 months ago

In our last blog post we compared the new NVIDIA Xavier NX to the Jetson TX2 and the Jetson Nano. Since then, we implemented some changes and updates to our benchmark tool. First, we switched from the TensorRT Python API to the C++ API and second, we are now able to convert our model to INT8 precision to speed up inference. This is done by implementing the IInt8EntropyCalibrator2-class. More information on the INT8 calibration process …
