VHDL Detector IP Core
FPGA, VHDL, WaldBoost, object detection
The firmware is written in VHDL and its purpose is to configure FPGA circuit so that it detect objects in video using WaldBoost method with scaled video. This implementation is a high-perfrmance one that works on a video stream on-the-fly without any need of external frame buffer. Firmware is optimized primarily for Xilinx Zynq SoC platform.
This Agreement is concluded pursuant to the provisions of section 2358 et seq. of the Act No. 89/2012 Coll., the Civil Code
