DreamCam: A modular FPGA-based smart camera architecture

Abstract : DreamCam is a modular smart camera constructed with the use of an FPGA like main processing board. The core of the camera is an Altera Cyclone-III associated with a CMOS imager and six private Ram blocks. The main novel feature of our work consists in proposing a new smart camera architecture and several modules (IP) to efficiently extract and sort the visual features in real time. In this paper, extraction is performed by a Harris and Stephen filtering associated with customized modules. These modules extract, select and sort visual features in real-time. As a result, DreamCam (with such a configuration) provides a description of each visual feature in the form of its position and the grey-level template around it.
