Image Sensor Interface and Pre-processing
There is a continuous demand for high-speed image processing and recognition. Traditional machine vision systems are composed of image sensors and general-purpose processor.In this project we will design a custom interface for one or more image sensors. The interface will have a control unit that will allow the host system to control the parameters (image format, resolution, acquisition rate etc) of the image sensors. A data acquisition block will be used to access data from the image sensors. The main part of the project will be in designing the pre-processing stage which will perform a set of filtering and/or machine learning algorithms on the fly as the image is being acquired and forward this information to a larger host system for further processing.
The project will require you to understand and implement the communication interface of common image sensors, will allow you to implement real-time video processing and machine learning algorithm steps directly ion hardware and interface with the host computer system.
