Overview

Embedded Computer Vision, exemplified by the migration from powerful workstations to embedded processors in computer vision applications, is a new and emerging field that enables an associated shift in application development and implementation.

This comprehensive volume brings together a wealth of experiences from leading researchers in the field of embedded computer vision, from both academic and industrial research centers, and covers a broad range of challenges and trade-offs brought about by this paradigm shift. Part I provides an exposition of basic issues and applications in the area necessary for understanding the present and future work. Part II offers chapters based on the most recent research and results. Finally, the last part looks ahead, providing a sense of what major applications could be expected in the near future, describing challenges in mobile environments, video analytics, and automotive safety applications.

Features:

• Discusses the latest state-of-the-art techniques in embedded computer vision

• Presents a thorough introductory section on hardware and architectures, design methodologies, and video analytics to aid the reader’s understanding through the following chapters

• Offers emphasis on tackling important problems for society, safety, security, health, mobility, connectivity, and energy efficiency

• Discusses evaluation of trade-offs required to design cost-effective systems for successful products

• Explores the advantages of various architectures, development of high-level software frameworks and cost-effective algorithmic alternatives

• Examines issues of implementation on fixed-point processors, presented through an example of an automotive safety application

• Offers insights from leaders in the field on what future applications will be

This book is a welcome collection of stand-alone articles, ideal for researchers, practitioners, and graduate students. It provides historical perspective, the latest research results, and a vision for future developments in the emerging field of embedded computer vision.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
From the reviews:

“The book is a result of the Embedded Computer Vision Workshop 2007. … provides a very good overview of the current state of the art in embedded computer vision and of the major trends and growing markets. … it is a good start and provides an extensive list of references to look for if one wants to go into more detail. Overall I would recommend this book to anyone interested in getting into this exciting field.” (Marcus E. Hennecke, IAPR Newsletter, Vol. 33 (2), April, 2011)
