BunnyVision


BunnyVision is a product story born of a newfound passion and purpose in biking. The story will be told over a series of chapters in 2024. BunnyVision will feature interesting technology components such as the NXP MCX N947 dual-core microcontroller with an embedded NPU and the Azumo 64-color Memory-In-Pixel(MIP) display. They came into the story nearly simultaneous to a newfound love for biking after an extended surgical recovery.

Chapter 1

Purpose Driven Design

Purpose Driven Design

Successful purpose driven products are almost universally the result of the confluence of complementary technologies and a genuine need. In the case of BunnyVision, the technology components are the NXP MCX N947 dual-core microcontroller with an embedded NPU and the Azumo 64-color Memory-In-Pixel(MIP) display. They came into the story nearly simultaneous to a newfound love for biking after an extended surgical recovery.

Fellowship of the Bunny

Fellowship of the Bunny

Assembling the team to accomplish great things can often take a non-linear path. The relationships you forge can be the result of years, even decades, of work. Here we explore how an international team was put together to bring BunnyVision to life and dive into the architecture of the "Mark-I" prototype.



Support


No one works alone. BunnyVision is supported internally at Wavenumber and through the support of commercial and academic entities. It simply wouldn’t happen without them.

Industry

NXP

NXP has been crucial to this story as well as many others.  I have had a long history with the precursor organizations to NXP (Motorola, Freescale and Phillips). BunnyVision exists because of a long heritage of products and projects using their technology.

Azumo has graciously offered early access to their new display to help make BunnyVision come to life.  Their reflective display products and front light technology have been a huge component of the BunnyVision story.

University

galileo

BunnyVision is also being supported by a team at Galileo University in Guatemala City lead by Dr. Julio Fajardo. In 2012,2013 and 2017 I traveled to Galileo to participate in the FIT events. I left with life-long friendships with truly good people. Galileo will be helping develop the core object detection model to be used on the eIQ Neutron NPU. They will also be helping with developing and optimizing the rending pipelines.

I have always been proud to be a graduate of the Pennsylvania College of Technology.  Last Fall, we engaged with Dr. Tom Ask of the Industrial Design program. Two of his students: Kenni Powell and Nick Flores invested time in early-stage Industrial Design aspects.
