Editorial Reviews


From the reviews:

“The book is a result of the Embedded Computer Vision Workshop 2007. … provides a very good overview of the current state of the art in embedded computer vision and of the major trends and growing markets. … it is a good start and provides an extensive list of references to look for if one wants to go into more detail. Overall I would recommend this book to anyone interested in getting into this exciting field.” (Marcus E. Hennecke, IAPR Newsletter, Vol. 33 (2), April, 2011)

From the Back Cover

Embedded Computer Vision, exemplified by the migration from powerful workstations to embedded processors in computer vision applications, is a new and emerging field that enables an associated shift in application development and implementation.

I had the idea that it was a text book, the book is ok for those guys in research not for those just starting in computer vision filed.
