This is the story of how a 7 people company has managed to place its code into billion of devices and get free feedback from engineers at Intel, AMD, Linaro, Xilinx and Cisco with the final purpose of
classifying potatoes at a rate of 23000 kg per hour.
In this presentation, Ricardo Ribalda will show the evolution of a custom camera from Qtechnology, going from a bare metal application, to a Linux program using proprietary libraries to finally end up into a complete Open Source stack (from Video4Linux to OpenCV) with all the relevant code merged into upstream (Linux Kernel, Open Embedded, U-boot and Gstreamer).
The speaker will discuss what has been the challenges and the benefits of this 5 years journey.
