The 2020 System Design Contest features embedded system implementation of neural network based object detection for drones. Contestants will receive a training dataset provided by our industry sponsor DJI, and a hidden dataset will be used to evaluate the performance of the designs in terms of accuracy and power. Contestants will compete to create the best performing design on an Ultra96 v2 FPGA development board. Grand cash awards will be given to the top three teams. In addition, our industry sponsor Xilinx will provide a limited number of teams successfully registered with a subsidized design kit (on a first-come-first-served basis).
The award ceremony will be held at the 2020 IEEE/ACM Design Automation Conference.
