Computer Vision for Embedded Systems

ECE59500

Credit Hours:

1

Start Date:

November 3, 2021

Learning Objective:

  1. Use computer vision to analyze images
  2. List the constraints of embedded systems
  3. Explore design space of computer vision
  4. Evaluate different methods for accuracy/time tradeoffs

Description:

This course provides an overview of running computer vision (OpenCV and PyTorch) on an embedded system (Raspberry PI). The course emphasizes the resource constraints imposed by embedded systems and examines methods (such as quantization and pruning) to reduce resource requirements. Course topics:

  1. Overview, image data formats, OpenCV
  2. Edge detection and segmentation
  3. Applications of computer vision in embedded systems
  4. Datasets, bias, privacy, competitions
  5. Machine learning and PyTorch
  6. Performance and resources (time, memory, accuracy)
  7. Object detection and motion tracking
  8. Data annotation and generation
  9. Quantization
  10. Pruning and network architecture search
  11. Tree modular networks
  12. Vision in context, MobileNet
  13. Real-time vision
  14. Review and discussion
