|Project Summary||Project Information|
A Ruggedized Camera Encoder (RCE) is a compact and robust system that analyzes a stream of image data in real-time. Typically, video analytics are completed using post processing techniques on a unit that is separate from the camera stream. This system will eliminate the need for post processing which cuts down on turnaround time and the need for a secondary system.
The goal of this project is to deliver a working prototype that will have a small enclosure (tabletop) with two tethered camera inputs, acquiring HD 1080p 30fps image data. The system will be capable of processing the image data in real-time running different video analytics algorithms. It will be capable of streaming compressed image data over GigE to a standard video client for diagnostics.
The final outcome of the project can be broken up into three parts. The first part was a complete mechanical design package done in Solidworks. The second part was a finished PCB design of the CoaXPress mezzanine card and schematics of the FPGA board. The third part is the initial framework for the software. A complete and integrated system was not accomplished but the building blocks and necessary research have been completed.
