There is a rapidly growing demand for using smart cameras for various biometric applications in surveillance. Although having a small form-factor, most of these applications demand huge processing performance for real-time processing. Face recognition is one of those applications. In this paper we show that we can run face recognition in real-time by(More)
Embedded real-time image processing is widely used in many applications, including industrial inspection, robot vision, photocopying , traffic control, automotive control, surveillance, security systems and medical imaging. In these applications, the size of the image can be very large, the processing time should often be small and real-time constraints(More)
Smart cameras are among the emerging new fields of electronics. The points of interest are in the application areas, software and IC development. In order to reduce cost, it is worthwhile to invest in a single architecture that can be scaled for the various application areas in performance (and resulting power consumption). In this paper, we show that the(More)
A travel time distribution based on a particle-tracking analysis in a ground water model containing weak sinks is often uncertain because whether a particle is discharged or allowed to pass through a weak sink is unresolved by particle-tracking theory. We present a probability-based method to derive an objective travel time distribution in models containing(More)
This paper describes the architecture of a SmartCamera, applied for real-time dense stereo vision. The system is based on two TriMedia SmartCameras, an FPGA for low level image pre-and post-processing, a single chip SIMD array for disparity calculation for all epipolar lines in parallel, and a VLIW processor for further processing of the image processing(More)
Reliable object tracking at video speed is a task that requires high performance. We have analyzed the various parts of typical algorithms and found that some parts of program flows are best performed on a parallel platform for performance reasons and other parts are better performed on a sequential processor for reliability and versatility reasons.(More)
