Low-vision eyewear runs Linux-compatible Unison 5.2 RTOS
RoweBots announced that its minimalist, Linux- and POSIX-compatible "Unison" real-time operating system (RTOS) powers eSight's Alivios Intelligent Eyewear. Currently in clinical trials, Alivios helps to improve vision in people with eye diseases such as macular degeneration, combining Unison OS 5.2, a Texas Instruments (TI) DaVinci processor, an HD video camera, and "near-to-eye" displays, says the company.
