Jacopo is a software engineer with a passion for embedded and operating systems. He took part in world-class efforts such as Google's Project Ara and Linaro as Android Platform developer and Linux Camera Engineer. He currently hacks the kernel full time mostly to add support for new Renesas boards and platforms to mainline Linux releases and to help with the integration of cameras and image sensors. He enjoys days long discussions on patches reviews, never-ending email threads and thousands lines long irc chat logs. Sometimes he also finds some time to write code.
|Image capture on embedded Linux system
Image capture is one of the most broad and complex fields of today's computing applications. Capturing and displaying images with an embedded platform poses additional challenges, introduced by the rapidly increasing complexity of dedicated hardware blocks often found on modern Systems On Chip designed for mobile and industrial computing. Using real world examples of image sensors, connection buses and processing blocks this presentation provides anoverview of current industry standard technologies with an introduction to Video4Linux2 kernel framework for driver development and its userspace APIs. Talk outline: - light, colors, pixels - image sensors - the Video4Linux2 framework - video capture driver - image capture in userspace
