Designing Vision Front Ends for Embedded Systems

Wednesday, May 23, 4:50 PM - 5:20 PM
Summit Track: 
Mission City Ballroom M1-M3

This presentation guides the audience through the process of specifying and selecting a vision front end for an embedded system. This covers topics like selecting the right sensor, a suitable optical setup, sensor interface, real-time process coupling, and last but not least, how and where to do the image pre-processing such as de-Bayering, white balancing, etc. While there are many experts around for processing images once they are in memory, the detailed knowledge of how to create these images in the first place is not so widely spread. A lot of these more “analog” topics are critical for many project’s success in terms of meeting the performance and cost targets. This presentation gives an overview of the design flow for the vision front end, addresses common pit-falls and describes solutions for typical applications.
