“Tools for Creating Next-Gen Computer Vision Apps on Snapdragon,” a Presentation from Qualcomm

Judd Heape, Vice President of Product Management for Camera, Computer Vision and Video Technology at Qualcomm, presents the “Tools for Creating Next-Gen Computer Vision Apps on Snapdragon” tutorial at the May 2022 Embedded Vision Summit.

The Snapdragon Mobile Platform powers the world’s best smartphones, XR headsets, PCs, wearables, cars and IoT products. Thanks to Snapdragon, these products feature powerful computer vision technologies that you can tap into to build next-gen apps. Inside Snapdragon is a hardware engine dedicated to computer vision–the Engine for Visual Analytics (EVA). EVA hardware acceleration gives developers access to high-performance, low-power computer vision functions to enhance apps that rely on advanced camera or video processing.

The EVA includes a motion processing unit, a feature descriptor unit, a depth estimation unit, a geometric correction unit and an object detection unit. These blocks power high-level functions such as electronic image stabilization, multi-frame HDR, face detection and real-time bokeh. In this presentation, Heape does a deep-dive into EVA’s Software Developer Kit (SDK) and available APIs, such as Optical Flow and Depth from Stereo, and explores how these features can be integrated into your apps.

Here you’ll find a wealth of practical technical insights and expert advice to help you bring AI and visual intelligence into your products without flying blind.
