A Case Study in Distributed Deployment of Embedded Software for Camera Networks

Free registration required

Executive Summary

The authors present an embedded software application for the real-time estimation of building occupancy using a network of video cameras. They analyze a series of alternative decompositions of the main application tasks and profile each of them by running the corresponding embedded software on three different processors. Based on the profiling measures, they build various alternative embedded platforms by combining different embedded processors, memory modules and network interfaces. In particular, they consider the choice of two possible network technologies: ARCnet and Ethernet.
