The long term goal of ULPEC is to develop advanced vision applications with ultra-low power requirements and ultra-low latency.
The output of the ULPEC project is a demonstrator connecting a neuromorphic event-based camera to a high speed ultra-low power consumption asynchronous visual data processing system (Spiking Neural Network with memristive synapses).
Although the ULPEC device aims to reach TRL 4, it is a highly application-oriented project: prospective use cases will be studied and an application roadmap will be developed, by considering interoperability for an integration in “systems of systems” as well as the definition of upper power consumption limits depending on future application.
The project consortium therefore includes an industrial end-user (Bosch), which will more particularly investigate autonomous and computer assisted driving.
Autonomous and computer assisted driving are indeed a major disruption in the transport and car manufacturing sector.
Vision and recognition of traffic event must be computed with very low latency (to improve security) and low power (to accommodate the power limited environment in a car, such as power budget and heat dissipation).
