Riding on the fast growing trend of low-cost, high-performance, multi-core Android SoC, this project aims to develop a video/image processing middleware technology platform for embedded systems(comparable to DirectX for PC) utilizing the heterogeneous CPU-GPU architecture of multi-core SoC. This technology will be hardware and Android version independent. It will provide unified APIs to application developers with rich video/image, camera and machine learning libraries extracted from academic research and ASTRI patent portfolio. It enables fast and efficient commercialization of academic/university research. Demo applications such as object tracking and multi-window will be developed in this project using the above mentioned middleware technology platform for proof-of-technology, innovative MMI applications, and early commercialization engagements.
