Immersive Robotics (IMR) have today announced its strategic partnership with Arrayware (see www.FPGAs.com).
Arrayware develops hyper-fast, custom-engineered hardware for complex analysis, diagnostics, extreme image processing, time intensive modelling, advanced control, big data solutions, wired and wireless data transport. They apply FPGA technology to accelerate digital processing and computation in diverse domains. Founded in 1993, their customer base has grown over twenty years to include: life science; mining; chemistry; medical; communications; physics; automotive; agriculture and finance. The results are 100’s of times speed-up and significant power and space reductions over conventional hardware.
IMR CEO, Dr Daniel Fitzgerald spoke in more detail, “The work we are conducting with the world’s first wireless solution for VR is pushing the limits of the latest interfaces for FPGAs. If you consider the huge amount of data being passed through with the latest HTC Vive and Oculus HMDs, you are pushing through around 1 GB of data every second. We have developed smart algorithms for VR content that dramatically reduce this data and we need the latest in FPGA technology to run this extremely fast so there is no perceived latency to the user. We have partnered with Arrayware to expand our team, leverage resources and know-how and allow us to achieve the goal of wireless VR.”
IMR is happy to announce this partnership as we push forward with our final beta wireless product to be available soon.
