Evaluation of Thermal Imaging on Embedded GPU Platforms for Application in Vehicular Assistance Systems

Abstract "This study is focused on evaluating the real-time performance of thermal object detection for smart and safe vehicular systems by deploying the trained networks on GPU & single-board EDGE-GPU computing platforms for onboard automotive sensor suite testing. A novel large-scale thermal dataset comprising of > 35,000 distinct frames is acquired, processed, and open-sourced in challengin... » read more
