Last week Intel announced its acquisition of Movidius, the company that designs the computer vision technology behind Google’s Project Tango and the obstacle avoidance in DJI’s Phantom 4. In a statement, Movidius CEO Remi El-Ouzzane explained that their vision processing units and Intel’s RealSense 3D sensors are “a winning combination for autonomous machines that can see in 3D, understand their surroundings, and navigating [sic]accordingly.” However, the combination of these two technologies may be able to do a lot more in the future than simple obstacle avoidance. This is because Movidius’ technology encompasses both hardware and software. They make a chip, called the Myriad 2, that is optimized for processing complex visual information. It also uses very little power, so it is ideal for use in technology like drones and mobile…
