D. Hong. Implementation of Vision Processing Tasks on a Smart Camera Platform Using Neighborhood Processors. Master’s thesis, University of Nebraska-Lincoln, Lincoln, Nebraska, July 2018.
Two applications of vision processing on a smart camera platform using neighborhood processors are presented. A smart camera application of real-time trajectory calculation for tracking objects and predicting their path of motion by using a single intelligent camera or a dual camera system are designed, simulated and implemented. Another application of object recognition with a key points algorithm for detecting simple shaped objects and locating the camera position within a 3-D coordinate system via imaging by using artificial neural network is applied to provide quick and accurate processing on a neighborhood-level parallel processor or other limited vision chip. For all applications an emphasis has been placed on simplifying algorithmic requirements to allow implementation on processors with limited computational resources.
