distributing too

One approach that is being used is distributing the processing as well.  Many of the high level functions do not need to be performed at the camera level.  Putting the "low level" image functions in the camera reduces the amount of data that needs to be transmitted.  The systems you speak of are capable of going through feature extraction at the camera level and then communicating that higher level information to a centralized system (or a hierarichy of processors) to provide system function.

Image analysis and machine vision should be an open-source field. I don't want to re-invent the wheel in this area. I have a few applications I would love to use such tech in, but I have shied away from the task due to the daunting work in entails.

Agreed, the camera should just take pictures. The high-level work should be handled by more powerful computer systems.

Cabe,

Can you pleae give few examples of "Re-Inventing The Wheel in this area". My understanding is that most of the repetitive tasks are provided by vendors in the form of libraries / built-in functions.

The role of multicore

A very nice look at the role of multicore in future vision systems. Multicore seems like a natural for real-world vision systems going forward.

Samsung's Galaxy line of smartphones used to fare quite well in the repairability department, but last year's flagship S5 model took a tumble, scoring a meh-inducing 5/10. Will the newly redesigned S6 lead us back into star-studded territory, or will we sink further into the depths of a repairability black hole?
Fifteen European research centers have launched EuroCPS to help European companies develop innovative products for the Internet of Things.
Get your Allman Brothers albums ready. The iconic Volkswagen Microbus may be poised for a comeback, and this time it could be electric.
In 2003, the world contained just over 500 million Internet-connected devices. By 2010, this figure had risen to 12.5 billion connected objects, almost six devices per individual with access to the Internet. Now, as we move into 2015, the number of connected 'things' is expected to reach 25 billion, ultimately edging toward 50 billion by the end of the decade.
NASA engineer Brian Trease studied abroad in Japan as a high school student and used to fold fast-food wrappers into cranes using origami techniques he learned in library books. Inspired by this, he began to imagine that origami could be applied to building spacecraft components, particularly solar panels that could one day send solar power from space to be used on earth.
