Re: Day 3: Processor Choices for Embedded Vision
Jeff Bier   9/12/2012 1:33:11 PM

Looking forward to learning how low you can go in obtaining vision information.Wondering if anything is within reach of microcontrollers, or if it needs a multi-chip solution.

It is definitely possible to do some simple vision processing on a microcontroller.  It all depends on your data rate (resolution x frame rate) and the complexity of your algoriths.  If you just wanted to do face detection at close range, for example, and could tolerate latency of perhaps one second, that would likely be doable on an MCU. Most vision functions will require more processing power, however.  Also, interfeacing image sensors to MCUs can be a challenge.
