Abstract : Smart camera networks SCN raise challenging issues in many fields of research, including vision processing, communication protocols, distributed algorithms or power management. Furthermore, application logic in SCN is not centralized but spread among network nodes meaning that each node must have to process images to extract significant features, and aggregate data to understand the surrounding environment. In this context, smart camera have first embedded general purpose processor GPP for image processing. Since image resolution increases, GPPs have reached their limit to maintain real-time processing constraint. More recently, FPGA-based platforms have been studied for their massive parallelism capabilities. This paper present our new FPGA-based smart camera platform supporting cooperation between nodes and run-time updatable image processing. The architecture is based on a full reconfigurable pipeline driven by a softcore.
