H2020 MSCA Innovative Training Network for the research on Advanced Hardware/Software Components for Integrated/Embedded Vision Systems


Towards Low Energy Smart Cameras

@ Institut Pascal (CNRS-Université Clermont Auvergne), France

A smart camera is fundamentally a Cyber-Physical System where computation is entangled with visual sensor information and network communication. Moreover, the high throughput data provided by image sensors makes low energy smart camera design particularly challenging. System-level optimization the only short-term candidate to obtain the energy efficiency gain needed to reach Low Energy Smart Cameras. This research project will consist in designing and prototyping a low energy smart camera while building innovative system-level design methods that predict and optimize energy, based on separated Model of Computation (MoC) and Model of Architecture (MoA) and on matching at system level.
