Objectivies and Approach

The CERVIP project will build a new generation of flexible vision systems for a wide range of applications in the industrial inspection and visual control of robots, as well as medical and agricultural domains. The key components of the CERVIC system are:

Progress and Results

CERVIC has been developed under 32-bit versions of MS Windows for portability and ease of use. The digital hardware acceleration boards employ a cluster of A-D SHARC DSP chips communicating with the host via a PCI bus; faster communication between boards is facilitated by a 1GB/s point-to-point message passing protocol.

Information Dissemination Activities and/or Exploitation

The consortium members aim to exploit the products generated on this project in a large fraction of the Eastern and Western European markets.
