Implementation of an image recognition algorithm on the DM6446 DaVinci Processor
We are developing an Alternative and Augmentative Communication (AAC) portable device called PictoBar which is used in speech rehabilitation therapy. PictoBar recognizes barcodes and images, such as pictograms and pictures. Then it plays a sound message associated with the recognized barcode or image. This paper describes the development of the image recognition algorithm and its implementation using Codec Engine framework on a DM6446 DaVinci processor.
