Antmicro at ECS 2015: open source meets high tech


Our participation in Embedded Conference Scandinavia 2015 on November 3rd-4th, just as the past several years, might not come as a surprise. This year, however, there may be a thing or two to make paying a visit to the event in Stockholm especially worthwhile for those interested in open source, open hardware and advanced vision technologies.

While ECS celebrates its 10 year anniversary, Antmicro and Realtime Embedded will be announcing the open source release of Emul8, an embedded systems emulator that might just become a new favourite tool of the trade for professional developers in the industry.

Meanwhile, Michael Gielda of Antmicro will be giving a presentation on Wednesday at 4:00 p.m., just after the coffee break, in Track 2: Open Source – telling the success story of one our most exciting open source projects, the Axiom 4K open filmmaking camera.

At our booth (which is no. 27, right next to our friends from SICS) the team will be introducing an upgraded version of the open source MOPED, a mobile research platform for new software paradigms in the automotive domain, developed by the Swedish Institute of Computer Science, tuned up using Antmicro’s custom hardware and embedded software.

MOPED runs on ArcCore AUTOSAR and, just like the original prototype, is entirely navigable from a smartphone app. Antmicro’s prototype will be featuring advanced on-board processing capabilities thanks to the nVidia Tegra K1 technology. As an example of the potential of the improved MOPED platform, Antmicro will show on-board vision processing with CUDA/OpenCV. More about our works on MOPED can be found in the October blog post

And finally – the icing on the cake: Antmicro’s latest developments in multi-camera systems using FPGA SoCs.

Looking forward to a great time and eager to learn your thoughts on our exhibition. If you’re coming – let us know!
