September 2012 Embedded Vision Summit Presentation: "Image Processing for Object Recognition and Tracking," Dan Isaacs, Xilinx, and Michael Fawcett, iVeia

Dan Isaacs, Director of Processing Product Marketing at Xilinx, and Michael Fawcett, Chief Technology Officer at iVeia, presents the "Image Processing for Object Recognition and Tracking" tutorial, part of the "Embedded Vision Applications and Algorithms" technical session at the September 2012 Embedded Vision Summit. Topics discussed included trends in image processing for embedded vision applications, and object recognition leveraging OpenCV with a Canny edge-detect case study. This example showed how to leverage a hybrid processing architecture consisting of a-general purpose processor and FPGA fabric to partition a GigE Vision smart camera design and optimally accelerate image processing performance.
