In this work, we present the implementation in a reconfigurable architecture of a dense stereo vision algorithm based on census transform. Analyzing census transform algorithm we found that size and access memory could be reduced, which consequently also reduced the latency time. Furthermore, architecture resources are optimized and efficient thanks to(More)
Barriers along a watercourse and interconnections between drainage systems are dynamic landscape elements that are expected to play major roles in the dispersal and genetic structure of fish species. The objective of this study was to assess the role of these elements using creek chub (Semotilus atromaculatus) in the Mastigouche Wildlife Reserve (Québec,(More)
The design and the implementation of algorithms on FPGA-based architectures, is a complex task, above all for image processing. Many vision applications (video monitoring, obstacle detection from a vehicle) require real time performance. This paper analyzes only a classical function involved in these applications: pixel characterization by an attribute(More)
This paper describes an architecture dedicated to the realtime processing of census correlation in the context of the realization of passive stereovision sensors. Although DSP circuits have dramatically increased their performances in terms of frequency (about 600 MHz today), DSP cores (several Multipliers Accumulators) and pipelines (Super Harvard(More)
This article presents a reconfigurable architecture to calculate a dense disparity map of two stereo images based on census transform. This architecture is simplified and efficient as a result of binary operations and integer arithmetic used by census transform. Our architecture was prototyped using GAUT which is a practical tool to develop high-level(More)
This paper describes the on-going work on the design and the implementation of an integrated visual system dedicated to the classical function Obstacle detection. This system will be embedded on a mobile robot, which must navigate in a cluttered and dynamic environment: typically a public area like pedestrian streets, a transport station or a commercial(More)
This paper presents the implementation of real time Inverse Perspective Mapping algorithms on a FPGA. The IPM is a spatiotemporal algorithm that allows the detection of obstacles from two images I<sub>1</sub> and I<sub>2</sub>, either acquired by a moving camera, or by a stereoscopic sensor, knowing the relative positions between the two view points. In the(More)
