SAVE is a project to develop a stand-alone, generic embedded system/onboard device for vision.
The availability of embedded systems and onboard devices equipped with various types of sensor, wireless connectivity, networking features, and smart processing abilities opens the gates to a flood of innovative services and the ability to tackle problems that were heretofore impossible or extremely expensive to address.
The SAVE module includes very-low-energy hardware for image capture and processing and a set of analytical algorithms developed specifically for the onboard/embedded context. The SAVE module will be a promising platform for implementing viewing applications for low-to-moderate image frame rates.
The project will provide material illustrations of this technology through two applications:
- optical readings of meters (smart metering) and
- road traffic surveillance.
