Title: A TRANSFORMATIVE EMBEDDED SOFTWARE ARCHITECTURE FOR IMAGE PROCESSING APPLICATIONS

Thesis Abstract : Real time image processing is often subjected to very harsh constraints due to the nature of the embedded hardware it is implemented on. Embedded hardware offer very limited memory, has low processing power and required to have low power needs.These constraints however, cannot be an excuse to give up on performance, as many of the applications in this field of work are created for high end military systems, border security, medical applications and areas similar to these where performance is critical. Unfortunately, many of the image processing algorithms used in these systems are rarely developed for the limited boundaries of embedded world. As such, there is a need for a methodology where one can transform image processing algorithms that is written in high level languages (matlab, python etc..) or even in pseudo-code to the low level languages (c++, c, assembly) that is more suited for embedded world. In this study, existing software development processes that are being used for this effort will be reviewed, and an embedded software architecture will be proposed as a solution to the problems stated above.
