HIPPEROS brings Intelligent Autonomy to Embedded World 2018

​HIPPEROS will exhibit this year in Embedded World 2018 in Hall 4 Booth 257, from February 27th to March 1st 2018 at the Nuremberg Exhibition Centre.

This year, the HIPPEROS team will be there to showcase Intelligent Autonomy use cases, with high performance real-time image processing using FPGA hardware acceleration and multicore AES supported by advanced RTOS, middleware and tools.

Using HIPPEROS middleware is the ideal solution to lower time, cost and effort to create all kinds of smart embedded, high end IoT and edge computing devices.

HIPPEROS and MangoGem sign Partnership on Embedded Analytics

HIPPEROS SA and MangoGem SA have just signed a technology and commercial partnership on Embedded Analytics. Embedded Analytics concerns the collection of data by embedded devices and its processing either on the device itself (edge computing) or by a backend server. Typical techniques related to data science, machine learning, heuristics or optimization are used in order to extract information from data and achieve Decision Support.

In this partnership, HIPPEROS leverages its real-time, embedded systems know-how and the modeling capabilities of the HIPPEROS Workbench with MangoGem's know-how in operations research as well as its UBABU technologies to realize smart Embedded Analytics applications and its AI and ML solvers technologies used in applications like the ORITAMES APS Scheduler.

TULIPP demo running the HIPPEROS Real-Time Operating System

In this simple demo, the Sundance EMC2-DP (equipped with a Zynq-7030) is connected to a 720p HDMI camera and an HDMI screen.

The board is running the HIPPEROS Real-Time Operating System which executes a task cycling between:

  • a simple HDMI pass-through,
  • the CPU implementation of the grayscale filter (~15fps)
  • the FPGA accelerated implementation of the grayscale filter (~90fps)
  • the CPU implementation of the sobel filter (~2fps)
  • the FPGA accelerated implementation of the sobel filter (~90fps)

HIPPEROS Chief Scientist receives an Influential Papers Award at RTNS 2017

​Prof. J. Goossens, Chief Scientist at HIPPEROS, receives an Influential Papers Award in the framework of the 25th anniversary of the International Conference on Real-Time Networks and Systems RTNS 2017. The awarded paper is entitled Limitation of the hyper-period in real-time periodic task set generation. The research presents a method to generate arbitrary and randomly periodic real-time tasks.

The originality of the method relays on the smart way to choose the task periods in order to reduce the hyper-period of the system. This result speedups the timing analysis validation and verification phase in the design of real-time system, using the HIPPEROS technology schedulability tools in particular, by reducing the length of the observation interval.

HIPPEROS joins European Machine Vision Alliance

HIPPEROS focuses more and more on offering High Performance Embedded Solutions to enable "intelligent autonomy", where computer vision is a key technology. Joining the European Machine Vision Alliance (EMVA) is a must to be part of that ecosystem. The HIPPEROS RTOS running on a Xilinx Zynq 7*** board contained multicore ARM CPUs and an FPGA can demonstrate low power hard real-time image processing at very high performance (10 x FPS) by perfectly synchronizing software and hardware accelerated tasks. Mr Ben Rodriguez, CEO of HIPPEROS, will give a talk at the European Machine Vision Forum (Vienna, 6 - 8 September 2017) to present HIPPEROS R&D activities in computer vision as part of the H2020 TULIPP project.

HIPPEROS Chief Scientific Evangelist to talk at ULB FNRS contact group

On May 26th, professor Joël Goossens, CSE of HIPPEROS, will give a talk at the ULB FNRS contact group workshop on "Critical analysis & quality improvement of numerical information". His presentation will be about the temporal quality and accuracy of data and computation and focus on "Real-time, determinism and schedulability as major challenges for embedded systems". This public talk is free of charge but registration is mandatory

Save more power with HIPPEROS RTOS technology!

HIPPEROS presented results at the 24th International Conference on Real-Time Networks and Systems (RTNS) in 2016.

We published a paper named “Quantifying Energy Consumption for Practical Fork-Join Parallelism on an Embedded Real-Time Operating System”.

We showed that by using a power-aware parallel programming frameworks for the design of real-time embedded applications, the HIPPEROS RTOS allows system energy savings up to 30% compared to traditional, sequential approaches.
The resulting frameworks are part of the ARIA core.

HIPPEROS at the Smart Systems Industry Summit 2016

​On October 11th, the SSIS 2016 will take place in Mechelen, Belgium. This is the place to get a sneak preview on what the future will bring in the domains of Smart Health, Smart Vehicles, Smart Home and Cities, Smart Vision and new this year Smart Analytics.

Mr Ben Rodriguez, CEO of HIPPEROS, will give a talk on the Smart Vision Track about The TULIPP Framework: A Low Power High Performance Image Processing Platform for Smart Applications.
