Embedded Vision Alliance Announces 2018 Vision Tank Winners
SANTA CLARA, Calif., May 24, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- The Embedded Vision Alliance® today announced the two winners of the 2018 Vision Tank competition at the Embedded Vision Summit. The annual start-up competition, which showcases the best new ventures using computer vision in their products, invited five finalist companies to pitch their company and product to judges in front of the Summit audience.
Judges' Award: VirtuSense Technologies
VirtuSense Technologies' product identifies people who are at risk of falls and injuries. The core technology is based on machine vision, using a 3D time-of-flight sensor to track a person's static and dynamic balance, identify sensory and muscular deficits and provide objective data to assess and treat issues.
Audience Choice Award: Boulder AI
Boulder AI has created a very intelligent camera that is waterproof, dust-proof and runs AI at the image source. This edge processing camera runs AI/machine learning and computer vision algorithms without the cloud, distilling visual information into actionable data.
"We are pleased to recognize and congratulate VirtuSense Technologies and Boulder AI for their achievements," said Jeff Bier. "This year, we had a strong field of more than 25 startup companies enter the Vision Tank competition, which reflects the growing number of new product ideas being fueled by computer vision, AI and machine learning. VirtuSense Technologies and Boulder AI clearly stood out for their technical innovation, as well as excellence in their business plans, teams and business opportunities."
The winner of the Vision Tank Judges' Award will receive a $5,000 cash prize, and both winners will each receive a one-year membership in the Embedded Vision Alliance. In addition, the companies will get one-on-one advice from the judges, as well as valuable introductions to potential investors, customers, employees and suppliers.
