LONDON Reuters – Britain s ARM Holdings, the provider of technology for the iPhone, has bolstered its exposure to the developing market of embedded computer vision with the purchase of Apical for $350 million, it said on Wednesday.Embedded computer vision involves the use of digital processing and algorithms to interpret meaning from images or video – allowing devices to understand their environment through visual means.Cambridge-based ARM said the acquisition of Apical would accelerate its growth into new markets such as connected vehicles, robotics, security systems as well as industrial and retail applications.It said it would also extend ARM s product portfolio in existing markets such as smartphones and cameras.Computer vision is in the early stages of development and the world of devices powered by this exciting technology can only grow from here, said ARM Chief Executive Simon Segars.ARM said Apical s imaging products are used in more than 1.5 billion smartphones and approximately 300 million other consumer and industrial devices.Founded in 2002, Apical employs about 100 people, mainly at a research and development center in Loughborough, central England.Last month, ARM reported better-than-expected first quarter profit.Its shares have, however, fallen 11 percent this year on reports Apple has continued to reduce iPhone production.The stock closed on Tuesday at 928 pence, valuing the business at 13 billion pounds.Reporting by James Davey; Editing by Mark Potter
ARM has acquired Apical, a U.K. designer of embedded computer vision technology, and plans to incorporate that technology into future ARM microprocessor and system-on-chip designs, it said Wednesday.The move will open up new opportunities for designers of autonomous vehicles and security systems, among other connected things, according to ARM CEO Simon Segars.That technology also turned up in Samsung Electronics' new laptop, the ATIV Book 9.Assertive Camera is another of Apical's developments: It's a range of software packages and silicon-based image signal processors for reducing image noise, managing color and shooting high dynamic range images.ARM makes its money by designing chips that others manufacture, or licensing its chip modules for others to incorporate in their own designs.Putting image analysis and interpretation capabilities in hardware could accelerate and simplify the design of a whole host of products, including self-driving cars and security systems.

This way, pedestrians or cyclists who happen to find themselves being struck by a Googlemobile would be protected from what s called secondary impact.The patent was filed back in 2014 and seems to be designed as a temporary solution to keep the humans around the self-driving cars safe as autonomous technology improves:While such systems are being developed, it must be acknowledged that, on occasion, collisions between a vehicle and a pedestrian still occur.Such safety mechanisms may become unnecessary as accident-avoidance technology is being further developed, but at present it is desirable to provide vehicles with pedestrian safety mechanisms.As for what kind of glue Google is planning to smear across its hoods, it s described in the patent as having some kind of eggshell -like coating over the main adhesive layer so the car doesn t drive around scooping up insects and other small animals like actual flypaper.Nissan s pop up engine hood uses tiny explosives to slightly raise the hood of the vehicle once it senses an impact to help stop pedestrians from hitting their heads.Given their role with Android OS, they could have the world s smartphones telling pedestrians when they are at risk of getting hit.
