CogniVue's Smart Vehicle Backup Camera Application RearVue-DE Named a 'Pre-Qualified Innovation' by Build In Canada Innovation Program
OTTAWA, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 07/09/14 -- CogniVue, a
technology licensing company who introduced Image Cognition Processor
(ICP) in 2010 to target high performance, low power embedded vision
processing, announced today that its RearVue-DE smart backup
application has been selected as a "pre-qualified innovation" by the
Build In Canada Innovation Program.
CogniVue is innovating with vision, licensing its APEX Image
Cognition Processor core (with a greater than 100x performance
advantage vs conventional processors) as well as higher level
development tools and its APEX-CV algorithm libraries. CogniVue's
early success in automotive (e.g. licensing its technology to
Freescale Semiconductor for the automotive market) was significantly
influenced by its range of ADAS application demonstrations (LDW,
Forward Collision Warning, Blind Spot Detection) which show-cased the
advantages of the ICP technology. In addition, CogniVue developed a
complete smart backup application with patent pending object
detection and monocular distance estimation: RearVue-DE. On June
20th, CogniVue's RearVue-DE was confirmed as a "pre-qualified
innovation" to be matched over the coming months with a government
department for test deployment.
The RearVue-DE application is optimized to run on a small (1" cube)
backup camera designed with CogniVue's CV2207 ICP System-on-Chip
(licensed to Freescale Semiconductor for automotive as the SCP2207).
This makes the RearVue-DE system (with CogniVue software and
hardware) the smartest and smallest Advanced Driver Assistant System
(ADAS) camera in the world.
"The acceptance of RearVue-DE as a pre-qualified innovation with BCIP
further validates our capability to innovate at all layers of the
'vision stack'," said Tom Wilson, VP Business and Development of
CogniVue. "We are pleased that the algorithmic innovations in
RearVue-DE will be deployed and ultimately prevent back-over
collisions and save lives."
Over the coming months, Public Works and Government Services Canada
(PWGSC) and CogniVue will seek a match with a government testing
department for the pre-qualified proposal's innovation. Currently
CogniVue is looking to a match with agencies such as the RCMP,
Department of National Defense, and National Parks Canada, and would
supply the entire RearVue-DE system (backup camera based on the
CV2207 equipped with CogniVue RearVue-DE software) for extensive
testing to assist for large scale deployment in cars and commercial
CogniVue is a leading innovator in embedded vision, providing both
semiconductor processor technology IP, tools and software that enable
its customers to develop innovative, previously implausible products
for wearables, mobile, and automotive applications. CogniVue provides
Image Cognition Processor technology with best performance per area
per power to semiconductor companies for high volume applications.
