Movidius provides machine vision technology, they released Myriad 2, they claim to be the industry’s first always-on vision processor. It delivers high-performance computational imaging and visual awareness in devices where every last drop of battery power counts, performing at under 1.2W of power means Myriad 2 can be deployed into tiny IoT devices such as smart cameras, drones and wearables, featuring a balance between programmable and hard wired elements, giving developers immediate access to its advanced vision processing core, while also allowing them to develop proprietary capabilities through the Myriad development platform. Movidius is being acquired by Intel, you can read more here. Movidius won the Best IoT Technology development award at IDTechEx USA 2016, you can read more here.
