The Evolution of Object Recognition in Embedded Systems

Object detection and recognition are an integral part of computer vision systems. In computer vision, the work begins with a breakdown of the scene into components that a computer can see and analyse. The first step in computer vision—feature extraction—is the process of detecting key points in the image and obtaining meaningful information about them. […]
