Accelerating vision and navigation applications on a customizable platform
—The domain of vision and navigation often includes applications for feature tracking as well as simultaneous localization and mapping (SLAM). As these problems require computationally demanding solutions, it is challenging to achieve high performance without sacrificing the fidelity of results or otherwise consuming excessive amounts of energy. Our goal then is to accelerate the applications in this domain to meet real-time performance constraints while simultaneously reducing energy consumption and avoiding degradation in the quality of results. To achieve this domain-specific acceleration, we model a customizable hardware platform based on the 3D integration of a Field-Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) atop a standard chip multiprocessor (CMP) with Through-Silicon Vias (TSVs) used for communication between the two layers. Furthermore, partial automation of accelerator creation using C-to-RTL tools allows for analysis of a wide range of candidates. In this work, we mathematically c...
