Kudan has released ultra-high speed DSP-SLAM for Digital Signal Processors

Kudan (4425.tyo) today announced that the company has released DSP-SLAM (Simultaneous Localisation and Mapping: real-time 3D point cloud generation and position tracking) for Digital Signal Processors (DSP), which are specialised for processing computer vision algorithms.

A Digital Signal Processor (DSP) is a type of processor designed to efficiently process digital sensor data such as video sequences or images, and widely used in devices for cameras and vision chips.

Kudan's DSP-SLAM is developed to be processed on DSPs at ultra high speed by leveraging parallel arithmetic operations functions on the processor. Due to the proprietary algorithm, DSP-SLAM is capable of running several orders of magnitude faster than an equivalent grade CPU.

DSP-SLAM is designed to support DSP architectures offered by major semiconductor IP companies, and expected to be adopted in a wide range of devices such as smartphones, wearable devices for AR (Augmented Reality) / MR (Mixed Reality), Robotics and IoT (Internet of Things).

About Kudan; Kudan is a leading Deep Tech lab developing Artificial Perception (AP) algorithms, providing the eyes for the machines (robots, computers), complementary working with Artificial Intelligence (AI) as the brain for the machines. On top of its proprietary Artificial Perception, Kudan is developing integration of AP with AI and IoT, based on its unique milestone approach specialised for Deep Tech.

About Deep Tech; Deep Tech can be defined as technology that is based on tangible engineering innovation. Deep Tech is often set apart by its profound enabling power, and agnostic nature of the use cases rather than the incremental refinement or delivery of standardised technologies or business model innovation based differentiation. Deep Tech can span across many technological areas and can impact diverse applications.

About Milestones; Since Kudan is developing Deep Tech, we use various milestones to measure the maturity of technology and development.
