Dedicated Hardware for Real-Time Computation of Second-Order Statistical Features for High Resolution Images
We present a novel dedicated hardware system for the extraction of second-order statistical features from high-resolution images. The selected features are based on gray level co-occurrence matrix analysis and are angular second moment, correlation, inverse difference moment and entropy. The proposed system was evaluated using input images with resolutions that range from 512×512 to 2048×2048 pixels. Each image is divided into blocks of userdefined size and a feature vector is extracted for each block. The system is implemented on a Xilinx VirtexE-2000 FPGA and uses integer arithmetic, a sparse co-occurrence matrix representation and a fast logarithm approximation to improve efficiency. It allows the parallel calculation of sixteen co-occurrence matrices and four feature vectors on the same FPGA core. The experimental results illustrate the feasibility of real-time feature extraction for input images of dimensions up to 2048×2048 pixels, where a performance of 32 images per second i...
