State-of-the-art License Plate Recognition for Intelligent Traffic
Cameras and 360 Degree Surround View for ADAS to be Showcased at CES
Intelligent traffic camera system utilizes ECP5 FPGA for license plate
detection, image processing, and image enhancement
ADAS 360 degree surround view system utilizes ECP5 FPGA for 4-channel
image stitching, fish eye correction, and 3D seamless merging
Both systems achieve improved energy efficiency, system performance,
and low cost with ECP5 FPGA-based acceleration
PORTLAND, Ore. & SHANGHAI--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jun. 5, 2017--
Semiconductor Corporation (NASDAQ: LSCC), the leading provider of
customizable smart connectivity solutions, today announced the
implementation of its ECP5
FPGA into embedded vision applications for smart surveillance and
automotive applications at the Edge. Reinforcing Lattice’s commitment to
the industrial and automotive markets, the company’s ECP5 family of low
power, small form factor FPGAs enables CPU acceleration for license
plate detection and image enhancement in intelligent traffic cameras. In
addition, Lattice’s ECP5 FPGA enables the integration of image stitching
and 3D merging for Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) 360
surround view systems.
Intelligent traffic systems (ITS), including traffic flow monitoring,
traffic violations identification, smart parking, and toll collection
are a key part of the vision of tomorrow’s Smart Cities. Such systems
typically require intelligent traffic cameras that can accurately detect
many aspects of a vehicle, such as license plates, even in harsh
environments, to perform video analytics at the Edge, rather than
sending raw video streams back to the Cloud. Shanghai Microsharp
Intelligent Technology Co., Ltd (Microsharp) is one such company that
offers intelligent traffic cameras with up to 95 percent license plate
“When seeking a partner to collaborate on our intelligent traffic
camera, we were looking for a scalable, low power solution to ensure
flawless real-time license plate image capture,” said Ting Zhou, CEO of
Microsharp. “Lattice’s ECP5 FPGA was a natural fit, allowing us to take
advantage of the product’s energy efficient image enhancement and
processing capabilities to accelerate the development of our intelligent
360 degree surround view system is a popular automotive ADAS technology
for parking assistance. These systems typically capture their
surroundings using at least four cameras facing different directions
around the car to generate a composite view for the driver to assist
with parking and low-speed maneuvering. The NEX-ADAS 360º 3-D Surround
View Monitoring Technology from Shenzhen Moorechip Technologies Limited
(Moorechip) synthesizes images from four cameras to create a
sophisticated, real-world 3D view of a vehicle's surroundings.
“Lattice’s ECP5 FPGA family offers the low power, small form factor and
flexible connectivity requirements needed to support our ADAS 360
surround view system, providing advanced, high-quality image-stitching
technologies to further differentiate our product from others on the
market,” said Andrew Liu, General Manager at Moorechip. “We look forward
to continuing our work with Lattice on future intelligent systems that
leverage their embedded vision solutions.”
“ECP5 FPGAs are ideal for flexible connectivity and acceleration at the
Edge, due to their low power consumption and small form factor,” said
Deepak Boppana, director, product marketing at Lattice Semiconductor.
“As intelligence at the Edge continues to grow, our solutions, including
the new Embedded Vision Development Kit, will help accelerate the
adoption of mobile-influenced technology in systems including robotics,
drones, machine vision, smart surveillance cameras and ADAS.”
