Software Modules

The Image Processing Toolbox library for the Blackfin processor implements a set of image processing primitives designed to enable faster development of complex image or video processing solutions.
The Video Occupancy Sensor library for the Blackfin processor provides a suite of functions that use input from Vision Sensors to detect occupancy or presence of humans or vehicles in outdoor spaces such as parking lots.
People Counter on BLIP is an ideal solution to get data related to people entering and exiting a specified area that can be used to drive several business analytics. People Counter product counts the number of entries and exits of people in a specified area based on the direction of movement.
Blackfin HOG SVM Detector
The Indoor Occupancy Sensor is an application that detects room or location occupancy for different types of user applications. Some examples are energy saving applications that control lights and air conditioning depending on occupancy. The Indoor Occupancy Sensor needs to identify people and not other moving objects such as papers, plants, fans.

Software Development Tools

CrossCore Embedded Studio is a world-class integrated development environment (IDE) for the Analog Devices Blackfin®, SHARC® and Arm® processor families.
