Labforge is a Waterloo, Ontario-based company that designs, builds, and manufactures smart cameras used in industrial automation and defense applications. By bringing artificial intelligence (AI) into their vision systems with Cadence, they can automate tasks that are difficult to perform. Attaching their flagship product, the Bottlenose smart camera, to a robot gives it the ability to understand what’s happening around it, and it can take the next actions based on what it’s seeing.
With low power being their main constraint, they turned to Cadence’s Tensilica Vision P6 DSP, a robust DSP that enables AI inference directly on the device. This allows the camera to analyze images and instruct robots based on what it's seeing. The Vision P6 DSP is designed specifically for vision processing and deep learning, making it the ideal choice for vision-based applications.
