Real-Time Edge Detection using Sundance Video and Image Processing System

Kanwar, Rajeev (2009) Real-Time Edge Detection using Sundance Video and Image Processing System. MTech thesis.



Edge detection from images is one of the most important concerns in digital image and video processing. With development in technology, edge detection has been greatly benefited and new avenues for research opened up, one such field being the real time video and image processing whose applications have allowed other digital image and video processing. It consists of the implementation of various image processing algorithms like edge detection using sobel, prewitt, canny and laplacian etc. A different technique is reported to increase the performance of the edge detection. The algorithmic computations in real-time may have high level of time based complexity and hence the use of Sundance Module Video and Image processing system for the implementation of such algorithms is proposed here. In this module is based on the Sundance module SMT339 processor is a dedicated high speed image processing module for use in a wide range of image analysis systems. This processor is combination of the DSP and FPGA processor. The image processing engine is based upon the „Texas Instruments‟ TMS320DM642 Video Digital Signal Processor. And A powerful Vitrex-4 FPGA (XC4VFX60-10) is used onboard as the FPGA processing unit for image data. It is observed that techniques which follow the stage process of detection of noise and filtering of noisy pixels achieve better performance than others. In this thesis such schemes of sobel, prewitt, canny and laplacian detector are proposed.
