As technology solutions continue to improve and mature, machine vision continues to amaze us with new possibilities and unpredictable uses. Without a doubt, we are now at a turning point in exponentially increasing market growth.
Drones: There is a natural connection between drones and visual processing. New ways of using drones are constantly emerging. Although the market size is significantly different from that of automobiles, drones are arguably an important niche market for certain embedded vision companies.
Entertainment and Games: When it comes to using embedded vision in entertainment and games, Microsoft Kinect and Nintendo Wii come to mind first. However, these devices are just an experimental example of embedded vision, trying out consumer-level use.
