LONDON Reuters – Britain s ARM Holdings, the provider of technology for the iPhone, has bolstered its exposure to the developing market of embedded computer vision with the purchase of Apical for $350 million, it said on Wednesday.Embedded computer vision involves the use of digital processing and algorithms to interpret meaning from images or video – allowing devices to understand their environment through visual means.Cambridge-based ARM said the acquisition of Apical would accelerate its growth into new markets such as connected vehicles, robotics, security systems as well as industrial and retail applications.It said it would also extend ARM s product portfolio in existing markets such as smartphones and cameras.Computer vision is in the early stages of development and the world of devices powered by this exciting technology can only grow from here, said ARM Chief Executive Simon Segars.ARM said Apical s imaging products are used in more than 1.5 billion smartphones and approximately 300 million other consumer and industrial devices.Founded in 2002, Apical employs about 100 people, mainly at a research and development center in Loughborough, central England.Last month, ARM reported better-than-expected first quarter profit.Its shares have, however, fallen 11 percent this year on reports Apple has continued to reduce iPhone production.The stock closed on Tuesday at 928 pence, valuing the business at 13 billion pounds.Reporting by James Davey; Editing by Mark Potter
Streaming video may be what Netflix is best known for, but now the company also offers a tool for checking the speed of your personal internet connection.You don t have to be a Netflix member to use the website, nor does it throw any ads at you.You literally just go to the website and wait for it to quickly report its findings.When you re experiencing streaming issues, fast.com allows you to check the download speeds you re getting from your Internet service provider, wrote David Fullagar, Netflix s vice president of content delivery architecture, in a blog post published today.While they re certainly useful, the company s motives in launching them are likely not 100 percent altruistic.Plus, the tool may inspire users to opt for faster internet, which would in turn improve their streaming experience — and thus their Netflix satisfaction.
The system can process 90 million instructions per second at less than 40 watts.That means the system uses less power than Nvidia s competing Drive PX2 computer, which consumes nearly 250 watts, according to CNET s Road Show blog.The system first started shipping in September of last year, and is now widely available to the whole automotive industry.Next level computers like the BlueBox and Nvidia s Drive PX2 provide far more computing power than ADAS processors, so they can process mountains of data from a large number of sensors in real time for instant decision-making.The introduction of this computer is a major step on the road to getting self-driving cars all over the road, which could happen sooner rather than later.John Greenough, senior research analyst for BI Intelligence, has compiled a detailed report on self-driving cars that examines the major strides automakers and tech companies have made to overcome the barriers currently preventing fully autonomous cars from hitting the market.Further, the report examines global survey results showing where fully autonomous cars are highly desired.Here are some key takeaways from the report:Three barriers have been preventing fully autonomous cars from hitting the road: 1 high technological component prices; 2 varying degrees of consumer trust in the technology; and 3 relatively nonexistent regulations.California's regulations stipulate that a fully autonomous car must have a driver behind the wheel at all times, discouraging Google's and Uber's idea of a driverless taxi system.In full, the report:Examines consumer trust in fully autonomous vehiclesIdentifies technological advancements that have been made in the industryAnalyzes the cost of fully autonomous technology and identifies how cost is being reducedExplains the current regulations surrounding fully autonomous carsTo get your copy of this invaluable guide, choose one of these options:Subscribe to an ALL-ACCESS Membership with BI Intelligence and gain immediate access to this report AND over 100 other expertly researched deep-dive reports, subscriptions to all of our daily newsletters, and much more.But however you decide to acquire this report, you ve given yourself a powerful advantage in your understanding of the emerging world of self-driving cars.
